Assam-Hyderabad in dreary draw

Last updated on: November 26, 2003 21:48 IST

Hyderabad batsmen Arjun Yadav and Ibrahim Khalil frustrated the Assam bowlers and managed to draw the Elite Group 'B' Ranji trophy match at the Maligaon Railway stadium at Guwahati on Wednesday.

Yadav with a painstaking 91 and Khalil (89) managed to keep the Assam bowlers at bay despite a six wicket haul by young medium pacer Arlan Konwar.

Assam, who scored 537 for nine declared in their first innings, needed to wipe the Hyderabad innings for an extra point but the duo put together a 147-run partnership to deny the hosts.

The match was heading for a dull draw and the only point of interest was whether the hosts can gain the first innings lead. But Hyderabad managed to hold on and were 410 for nine at close of play.

Yadav's innings off 228 balls was studded with nine fours and two sixes.

Konwar, on the other hand, toiled hard on a batsmen friendly wicket.
