Malappuram: Nov 27, 2012
 
 Having conceded the first innings lead, Kerala had to be contend with just one point against Goa in their Group C Ranji Trophy match that ended in a dull draw on the fourth and final day on Tuesday.
 
After scoring a massive 512 for eight declared in their first essay, Goa bundled out Kerala for a mere 297 and then enforced a follow-on on the hosts.
 
While following on, Kerala ended their second innings at 120 for four when the stumps were drawn at the close of the fourth day’s play.
 
Goa have pocketed three points from this game.
 
Kerala had a little chance of overtaking their opponents’ mammoth first innings total but they could have saved the follow on when they resumed the day today on 248 for six with 114 more runs still needed to avoid the follow on.
 
The two overnight batsmen — Rohan Prem, starting at 49 and Akshay Kodoth, resuming on 19 — tried to hold on to their respective wickets for a while but the latter departed for 31 and that trigger the collapse.
 
Rohan, however, fought a lone battle at the other end to remain unbeaten on 77.
 
Following on, Robert Fernandez (52 not out) and VA Jagadeesh (42) chipped in with important runs to ensure a tame draw in the end.
 
Brief scores: Goa 512 for 8 decl. drew with Kerala 297 (Abhishek Hegde 80, Rohan Prem 77*; Saurabh Bhandekar 4 for 87, Sher Yadav 3 for 35) & 120 for 4 (VA Jagadeesh 40, Robert Fernandez 52*; Sher Yadav 2 for 26).
