5-wicket win for North

North Zone defeated South Zone by five wickets on the penultimate day of the inter-zonal tournament at College ground on Wednesday.

Needing 149 runs to win, North reached the target with first innings centurion Kumar Deobrat and Kumar Amit remaining unbeaten on 30 and 16 respectively.

A win looked imminent for the North after their spinners Kaushal Kumar and Rajender Sharma had put the brakes on Souths second innings.

Resuming at an overnight score of 107 for 7, the South innings folded up at 155. Kamal Gope, who was unbeaten on 40, tried hard to save his team from the ignominy of a huge defeat.

However, the youngster failed to get any able support from the other end.

North openers Sandeep Gupta and Raju Kumar shared an opening wicket stand of 30 before the latter was caught by Rameez Nemat off leg-spinner Samar Qadri for 15.

Raju and Nishant Kumar continued the good work by putting in a 34-run partnership for the second wicket. Raju was dismissed by Qadri at 20. North lost their third wicket with an addition of 15 runs after Nishant fell to Qadri for 22. Sumitabh Kumar and Deobrat batted confidently and added 30 runs.

The former was also dismissed by Qadri after scoring 22. Rajender Kumar also did not last long as Qadri evicted him with a flighted delivery. Deobrat and Amit, however, saw their team through without any further hiccup.
