Goa: Feb 18, 2013

Andhra Pradesh produced a brilliant allround display to hand over hosts Goa a humiliating 170-run defeat in the south zone encounter of the Vijay Hazare National One Day Championship here today.

Sent into bat, Andhra posted a challenging 261 for six in their stipulated 50 overs with opener KS Bharat cracking a strokeful 125, containing 13 fours, and B Sumanth hitting a run-a-ball 45, which was laced with three fours.

The Andhra bowlers then returned to decimate the home team, dismissing them for a paltry 91 in just 25.4 overs.

KS Shahbuddin and B Sudhakar picked up three wickets each, while P Vijay Kumar and AG Praveen took two each to complete the victory for Andhra.

Such was the domination of the Andhra bowlers that only three batsmen — RU shukla (13), Shadab Jakati (16) and B A Mangaldas (17) — could reach double figures in a dismal batting performance by Goa.

Brief Scores: Andhra Pradesh 261 for 6 in 50 overs (KS Bharat 125; SS Yadav 2 for 61) beat
Goa 91 in 25.4 overs (B Mangaldas 17; B Sudhakar 3 for10).
