Ranji Trophy 14-15: Jharkhand vs Goa

Match Summary: Jharkhand (385 & 55/2  beat Goa (215 & 233 f/o) 
Points: Jharkhand 6, Goa 0

Finally Jharkhand managed to secure a win, albeit it was against bottom placed Goa. Yet it is still a win.

Jharkhand batted first. Saurabh Tiwary's 162 and Shiv Gautam's 76 built a solid platform which they weren't able to fully capitalize on. A typical lower order collapse saw the team manage only 385. But even this was enough to make Goa follow-on. Quadri and Nadeem again ran through the Goan lineup and Jharkhand had a meager target of 55 in the 4th innings. They were certainly in with a chance to secure the bonus point but a couple of early blows put that possibility out of equation. And Jharkhand moved on to an 8 wicket victory.

  • Saurbah Tiwary's 3rd century of the season.
  • Samar Quadri's 9 wicket match haul
  • Shabaz Nadeem's 6 wicket match haul
