Porvorim (Goa): Dec 17, 2013
Amol Shinde grabbed three wickets as Hyderabad bowled out Goa for 465 and took 49 runs first innings lead to earn three points from their Group C Ranji Trophy match which ended in a draw on the final day.
Hyderabad took their tally to 15 points from six matches.
Goa, who got one point from today’s draw, took their tally to 16 points from six matches.
Resuming at their overnight score of 273 for 5, Goa’s tail wagged before Amol Shinde struck when he cleaned-bowled H H Gadekar for 26.
Thereafter, Shadab Jakati (80) and D W Misal (57) defied the visitors and looked they would take first innings lead before Alfred Absolem had well-settled D W Misal caught behind by wicketkeeper Habeeb Ahmed for 57.
Jakati, who put on 101 runs for the seventh wicket with Misal, too, followed him when he was caught and bowled by Sandeep for 80 to end Goa’s challenge.
Amol Shinde then struck in quick succession to dismiss A R Yadav (29) and B A Mangaldas (0) to have Goa all out for 465.
Amol Shinde, who was the most successful bowler, claimed three wickets, while Alfred Absolem and B P Sandeep took one wicket each.
In reply, Hyderabad were 12 for no loss in their second innings when play ended with T Suman and P A Reddy remaining unbeaten on 1 and 10 respectively.
