Tripura collapsed against some fine Assamese bowling in their Ranji Trophy league match at Guwahati on Monday.
Winning the toss, Tripura opted to take first strike, but could not capitalise on the advantage. Only captain S Dasgupta and TK Chanda could contribute significantly with the bat. Dasgupta, opening the batting, made 52 off 120 balls, while Chanda struck 62 off 135 balls.
Assam wicket-keeper Samarjit Nath had a particularly fine day behind the stumps, completing six catches and one stumping. At the close of play, the visitors were 209 for eight. For Assam, MJV Ingty and J Gokulakrishnan took three wickets apiece.
