GUWAHATI, Jan 7 � Assam should have gained seven points with a 10-wicket win against Services in their Group C Ranji Trophy match, but requiring just 27 runs for victory, the host team lost as many as five wickets in reaching the small target on the third day of the four-day match at the Barsapara cricket stadium here today.

Assam scored 257 in reply to Services� 113 in the first innings, resuming at the yesterday�s total of 211 for eight. J Syed Mohammad remained unbeaten on 56 off 128 balls.
