Goa and Tripura grabbed one point each after their Group C Ranji trophy match ended in a dull draw following another weather-hit day at the Maharaja Bir Bikram College Stadium on Tuesday.

Only 13 overs could be bowled on Tuesday because of bad weather and not even a first-innings result was possible.

Goa, who were tottering at 64 for four in 26 overs on Monday, reached 116 for six in 39 overs when the stumps were drawn for the final time today. Tripura had scored 278 in their first innings.

Overnight batsmen Reagan Pinto (40) and Rohit Asnodkar (22) batted for another six overs on Tuesday, before the former was sent packing by Rana Dutta in the 32nd over.

Shadab Jakati (3) was the other batsman to get out on Tuesday when he was trapped by Murasingh in the 35th over.

Brief Score: Tripura 278 drew with Goa 116 for six  (Reagan Pinto 40; MB Murasingh 3 for 36).
