Sumanth guides Andhra to second win
Andhra Pradesh notched up their second win of the Syed Mushtaq Ali Trophy, beating Goa by 16 runs in a rain-affected encounter in Vishakapatnam. In a game reduced to 17 overs-a-side, Goa had left Andhra reeling at 74 for 7 in the 14th over, before the eighth-wicket pair of captain Bodapati Sumanth (47) and Duvvarapu Shivkumar (22) lead the recovery with a stand of 40, and took their team to a respectable 118. The Goan reply was led by their captain Sagun Kamat, who made a run-a-ball 41, but there was little support available from the rest of the line-up as the visitors fell short of their target. Only three Goan batsmen reached double-figures; the trio of Doddapaneni Kalyankrishna, Shankara Rao and Syed Sahabuddin took seven wickets between them to ensure victory.
