GUWAHATI: Poor run of Assam in the Syed Mushtaq Ali Cricket tournament continued as the side lost another game and this time against Meghalaya by four wickets in Mumbai today. This is the third defeat for Assam in the competition and they are now in the seventh place in the eight-team group ‘D’ points table.

It’s batting that was the culprit for the loss of Assam in today’s game. Invited to bat, Assam managed to score just 108-7 in their 20 overs. The start was worst as opener Pallav returned before the team opened an account. Sarupam Purkayastha (5), Riyan (2) and Wasiqur (2) followed him quickly and the score was once 28-4.

Sibsankar, who came in at three, tried to hold the innings but the support didn’t come from the other end as wicket tumbled one after another. Hrishikesh Tamuly (5) and Rajjakuddin (5) too failed to score double-figure runs which placed Assam at 51-6.

Finally, Sibsankar got some support from Abu Nechim Ahmed in the lower order and the duo added 46 runs on the seventh wicket, highest in the innings, which helped to make the total little respectable.

Sibsankar faced 47 balls to score 50 with the help of four boundaries. Abu, the second-highest scorer in the team, remained not out on 26 (19 balls, 4X1, 6X1).

Meghalaya took 18.5 overs to reach the target. Their openers Raj BIswa (25) and Punin Bisht (42) gave a solid start to the team adding 62 runs from 8.3 overs. Thereafter although Meghalaya lost wickets at regular interval still they managed to reach the target as it was not so big.
