Assam beat Odisha by 34 runs in the Syed Mushtaq Ali Trophy T 20 East Zone league tournament at JU second campus ground at Salt Lake here today.
After restricting Assam to 136 for 6, Odisha were bundled out for 102 in 17.2 overs. For Assam, medium pacer Pritam Das was the pick of the bowlers claiming four wickets.
Odisha got off to a flying start with Abu Nechim conceding 15 runs in the first over. However, Arup Das’s 2 for 19 triggered the collapse.
Though opener Paresh Patel (38 from 38 balls) tried to salvage the damage, the team folded up as wickets fell at regular intervals.
The highlight of the Assam innings was Sibsankar Roy and Dheeraj Jadhav who scored 47 and 33 runs respectively.
