Kolkata: Feb 21, 2013

Gokul Sharma produced an all-round show to propel Assam into the quarterfinals of the Vijay Hazare Trophy with a six-wicket win over Jharkhand at the Eden Gardens today.

This was Assam’s third successive bonus-point victory in the one-day domestic tournament as they topped the East Zone leg with 15 points, while former champions Jharkhand (3) were on the brink of an exit.

The toss once again became the decisive factor in the East Zone leg of the tournament, as Assam had little hesitation putting Jharkhand up front before being bundled out for 116 in 41.2 overs, taking full advantage of the early morning condition on a green top.

Sharma (4 for 32) was the wrecker-in-chief while Pritam Das and Arup Das chipped in with two wickets each as Jharkhand could not get a partnership going.

Chasing an easy target, Assam seemed to be in trouble at 44 for three, but Sharma put on a gritty 27 not out (52 balls, 3×4) in a 69-run fourth-wicket partnership with top-scorer Tarjinder Singh (37, 51b, 5×4) to steer the side home in 25.4 overs.

Brief Scores: Jharkhand 116 in 41.2 overs (Ishank Jaggi 27, Sunny Gupta 26; Gokul Sharma 4 for 32, Pritam Das 2 for 16, Arup Das 2 for 26) lost to Assam 119 for 4 in 25.4 overs (Tarjinder Singh 37, Gokul Sharma 27*; Sunny Gupta 2 for 18) by 6 wickets.

Assam 5 points, Jharkhand -1.
