GUWAHATI, Jan 9 � Bud Cricket Club have set up the summit clash with Postal in the Ramesh Baruah Trophy Cricket Tournament organised by Gauhati Town Club. In the second semifinal played at the Judges� Field here today, Bud posted a 29-run victory against Guwahati Cricket Coaching Centre (GCCC).
Put into bat, Bud, after a dismal start, piled up a fighting 202 for eight in 40 overs. Thanks to some good batting by man-of-the-match Bhaskar Kalita (53) and Kunal Saikia (41), Bud crossed the 200 mark. Chasing the target, GCCC could not recover from a poor start. A late charge by Chandan Rawat (50) could do nothing for his team.
The final is slated for January 12.
Brief scores: Bud CC 202/8 (Bhaskar Kalita 53, Kunal Saikia 41, Sarupam Purkayastha 22, Kon Orang 4/33, Sib Sankar Roy 2/25, Pallab Das 1/29). GCCC 173 (Chandan Rawat 50, Parag Das 26, Arminder Singh 26, Sarupam Purkayastha 3/31, Debabrata Roy 2/28, Arup Das 2/39).
