Kolkata: Feb 18, 2013 
 
Rakesh Mohanty put up an all-round show to help Odisha beat Tripura by four wickets for their first victory in the East Zone leg encounter of the Vijay Hazare Trophy.
 
Put into bat at the Jadavpur ground in Salt Lake, Tripura were skittled out for 165 in 45.4 overs with off-spinner Rakesh and skipper Biplab Samantray taking two wickets each.
 
Chasing the paltry target, Odisha batsmen put up yet another listless display to be reduced to 87 for five in the 24th over.
 
Rakesh then steadied the batting with a Lagnajit Samal (33 not out) as they put up 51-run for the sixth wicket before the latter got out.
 
But Rakesh remained unbeaten on 42 (3×4, 1×6) to hand Tripura their third successive loss.
 
Odisha now have three points with their maiden win but their chances to qualify for the knock-outs appear bleak as they lie on fourth spot ahead of bottom-rung Tripura (-1 point).
 
Brief Scores: Tripura 165 in 45.4 overs (Manisankar Murasingh 32; Biplab Samantray 2 for 23, Rakesh Mohanty 2 for 23) lost to Odisha 167 for 6 in 44.5 overs (Rakesh Mohanty 42*; Kaushal Acharjee 2 for 22) by 4 wickets.

Odisha 4 points, Tripura 0.
