Guwahati: Dec 22, 2012

Assam bowlers put up a great performance to reduce Andhra to 214 for eight at the end of the first day’s play in their Ranji Trophy Group C match at Guwahati on Saturday.

Despite half-centuries by Amol Muzumdar (82*) and Bodapati Sumanth (57), Assam managed to take the upper hand after day one.

Arup Das was the pick of the wicket with impressive figures of three for 56, while J Syed Mohammad (Two for 26) and Abu Nechim (Two for 63) claimed two each.

After putting Andhra in to bat, the hosts’ wrecked havoc, dismissing both the openers — Murumulla Sriram and Prasanth Kumar, for a duck each, as well as the one-down batsman Syed Sahabuddin (10).

However, Sumanth and Muzumdar came up with solid resistance and helped steady the boat.

The duo shared a 80-run stand for the fourth wicket before Sumanth departed for a 110-ball 57, studded with 10 fours.

After Sumanth’s dismissal, Assam quickly added two more wickets to their kitty before Rajesh Pawar (37) played a responsible knock and gave Muzumdar a good support.

Muzumdar and Pawar put on a 65-run stand for the seventh wicket to take Andhra past 200-run mark.

At stumps, Muzumdar had remained not out and at the other end Shaik Basha was yet to open his account.

Brief scores:  Andhra 214 for eight (Amol Muzumdar 82*, Bodapati Sumanth 57; Arup Das 3 for 56, Syed Mohammad 2 for 26, Abu Nechim 2 for 63) vs Assam
