Parvez, Ian slam cracking tons as J&K sight outright win
Srinagar, Dec 3: Power-packed centuries by Parvez Rasool Zargar and skipper Ian Dev Singh helped Jammu and Kashmir to set a tough target of 477 runs for Assam, before declaring its second innings at 318 for the loss of five wickets at tea session on third day of the ongoing Ranji Trophy Group-C match at Nehru Stadium, Guwahati on Monday.
While chasing the target, Assam were struggling at 46 for 3 when the stumps were drawn today. Dheeraj
Jadhav (16) and Gokul (0) were at the crease.
With full last day’s game left in the match, Assam have an uphill task at hand to stop J&K from an outright victory. The only hurdle in J&K’s outright victory seems to be in the form of Dheeraj Jadhav, who was dropped by Adil Reshi after the bowling of Parvez
Rasool at his individual score of 1 run and the team’s total of 6/2 in 7th over of the match.
Earlier, resuming from an over-night score of 1/0 with a total lead of 159 runs, J&K openers Adil Reshi and Ian Dev Singh played fabulously to make a partnership of 77 runs before Adil was trapped LBW by left-arm spinner Syed Muhammad at his individual score of 51 runs of 77 balls, studded with 6 fours and 2 massive sixes. Ian was joined by No. 3 batsman Bandeep Singh, who scored 19 runs of 28 balls with 2 fours and one huge six. He nicked an out-going delivery of Abu Nechim Ahmed straight into the hands of wicket-keeper Kunal Saikia.
Then came in promising Parvez Rasool at number 4, who along with his skipper sent the rival bowlers on a leather-hunt in a big partnership of 198 runs to take their side to a comfort zone. Both of them were a treat to watch as played shots with elegance, fluid grace, utmost timing and pure brilliance. They kept the score board moving and played the balls on merit to help their side reach to a stage where from they have least chances of losing. Ian scored 118 runs, which included delectable 15 boundaries and 2 sixes, while Parvez slammed unbeaten 120 runs, studded with 17 magnificent boundaries and 2 sixes.
Hardeep Singh (4) and Manik Gupta (00) were the two batsmen to fell cheaply.
For Assam, spinners Arlen Konwar and Syed Mohammed bagged 2 wickets each, while medium pacer Abu Nechim Ahmed claimed one.
While chasing a mammoth total of 477 runs, Assam were tottering at 46/3 in 25 overs bowled by J&K bowlers today. Speedster Ram Dayal bowled an excellent spell of 6 overs, scalping 2 important wickets of Pallav Das (00) and Kumar Saikia (00), while Ian Dev Singh got rid of dangerous looking Sinsankar Roy at his individual score of 29 runs off 75 balls including 4 boundaries. Assam have a long way to go as they are still 431 runs behind their required target, with 7 wickets in hand and a full last day’s play left in the game.
It may be recalled that Assam are the table toppers in Group-C of Ranji Trophy, with 12 points in their kitty so far in the current season. A win here, which seems almost certain, would boast morale of young brigade of Jammu and Kashmir.
