U-13 cricket

Guwahati, April 17: Tinsukia eased past North East Frontier Railway Sports Association by seven wickets in yet another low-scoring match of the second Umananda Bora Memorial Under-13 Inter-District Cricket Tournament at Barsapara Cricket Stadium here today.

Batting first, NFRSA batsmen failed to utilise their chance as the side went on to be all out for a paltry 50 runs in 34.5 overs. Rohanjyoti Rabha was the lone batsman to reach the double-figure mark with 10 runs off 31 balls while the side received 17 runs in extras.

Abhishek Bhuyan picked up three wickets going for eight runs in eight overs while Suvam Sharma bagged two wickets conceding 11 runs in eight overs. Animesh Baruah, Riyazuddin Ali, Rohit Agarwal and Shek Sahil took one wicket each.

In reply, the Tinsukia batsmen got past the target losing three wickets in 15 overs. Despite an early blow in the second ball of their innings, Riyazuddin Ali, with an unbeaten 16 runs off 42 deliveries, and Nabin Kumar with 24 runs off 45 balls, were the only batsmen to open their account. The side received a total of 17 runs in extras.

Argha Chakraborty picked up two wickets going for four runs in his three overs while Injamul Haque scalped one wicket giving away 15 runs in four overs.
