Goa made a good start to their final-round Plate Group match against Himachal Pradesh, finishing the first day's play at Margao on 264 for 4 thanks to fifties from Swapnil Asnodkar and Mandar Phadke. After losing Nikhil Haldipur for just 4 - lbw to the impressive Rahul Panta - Goa made steady progress with a 66-run stand between Asnodkar and Sagun Kamat (37) who looked good for more but was removed by Panta. Following Asnodkar's dismissal with Goa on 164 for 4, Phadke and Shadab Jakati added exactly 100 to stave off any further threat and leave the home side in a solid position.
