LIVE CRICKET SCORE: GOA 532/5, Keenan 3 (7), Snehal Kauthankar 1 (1) — Goa have gone past the 500-run mark and have also lost five wickets. A few more runs and it should be enough to declare for the innings.

LIVE CRICKET SCORE: GOA 477/2, Swapnil Asnodkar 211 (338), Darshan Misal 16 (31) — GONE!!!! Finally another breakthrough for J&K as Kamath falls right after scoring his century, while Asnodkar brings up his 200.

LIVE CRICKET SCORE: GOA 430/1, Swapnil Asnodkar 181 (297), Sagun Kamat 105 (279) — Goa just keep battting on and on and on as they keep frustrating the J&K bowlers, who seem to be helpless in getting this pair done with. Asnodkar nears his 200, while Kamat scores his ton.

LIVE CRICKET SCORE: GOA 301/1, Swapnil Asnodkar 104 (195), Sagun Kamat 63 (189) — Goa cross the 300-run amrk as they have suffered no setbacks as of now and continue to bat sensibly, just the way they played on Day 1, while Asnodkar brings up his ton.

LIVE CRICKET SCORE: GOA 289/1, Swapnil Asnodkar 95 (180), Sagun Kamat 62 (181) — Goa start right from where they stopped as the batsmen continue to bat comfortable, while Asnodkar inches towards his century, being just five runs short.

Amogh did his job with the bat before getting dismissed. He scored an excellent 106 from 228 deliveries he had faced. It will be crucial for Swapnil and Sagun to carry the same form in the second day to ensure Goa posts a competitive first innings total before the hosts take over the batting. Both the teams are currently placed sixth and seventh in the points table respectively. Goa are currently placed in the sixth spot as they have 15 points from seven games, along with a win and loss, each followed by five draws. Jammu and Kashmir, on the other hand, have played six games and have just eight points from a couple of losses and four draws, as they are in a desperate search for their opening win this season so far.
