Shillong, Nov 16: Abhishek Kumar took a five-wicket haul for Meghalaya but the team lost by 164 runs to Assam in their Vijay Hazare Trophy match in Kolkata yesterday.
Kumar’s figures read 5/41 as Assam were restricted to 221/9 in their 50 overs after they won the toss and chose to bat first.
Meghalaya’s other successful bowlers were guest professional Chirag Khurana 2/37, Sanvert Kurkalang (1/8) and Dippu Ch Sangma (1/39).
The chase was difficult for Meghalaya, with only two batters able to get into double figures (Khurana 23 and Dippu 13) as the team were bundled out for 57.
Meghalaya’s next match will be against Vidarbha on Thursday.
