Delhi notch up massive victory

Staff Reporter

Delhi won their Ranji Trophy league match against Jammu & Kashmir by a margin of 200 runs, picking up eight points at the Feroze Shah Kotla grounds in Delhi on Tuesday.

Set a target of 469, Jammu & Kashmir never looked to go after it and could only hope for a draw. When their in-form batsman, Kavaljit Singh, fell after making 90 with the score on 193, having spent 310 minutes at the crease, Delhi sniffed a chance to bowl their rivals out.

They did not mess it up. Sarandeep Singh (4-60) and Amit Bhandari (3-76) combined to destroy Jammu & Kashmir's lower order, bowling them out for 268. Some resisting efforts from the lower middle-order notwithstanding, Delhi finally won in a canter.
