Andhra thrash Kerala

Former India wicket-keeper MSK Prasad and Y Venugopal Rao were the stars in Andhra's 52-run win over Kerala at the Trishna Stadium, Visakhapatnam on Saturday.

Prasad, who also happens to be the Andhra captain, made 82 off 82 balls and Venugopal Rao 91 off 100 balls as Andhra made 270 for four in their 50 overs.

MP Sorab's 72 off 112 balls meant that the Kerala reply got off to a decent start. But his dismissal with the score on 155, saw the visitors lose their way; they were dismissed for 218 off 49.1 overs. Andhra were rewarded with four points for their win.
