Services and Assam cross swords in the Vijay Hazare Trophy 2021-22 on Thursday, December 9. The Metallurgical and Engineering Consultant Limited Sail Stadium in Ranchi will host the game.

Services pulled off a close win in their first game of the season against Railways. Batting first, they scored 254 runs for the loss of eight wickets. Skipper Rajat Paliwal and Devender Lohchab struck half-centuries while Shivam Tiwari (41), Ravi Chauhan (36) and Mohit Ahlawat (36) made notable contributions.

Railways got close but the Services bowlers held their nerves to restrict them to 249 for nine, thus winning by a slender margin of five runs. Pulkit Narang was the pick of the bowlers with four wickets to his name. Despite not winning comfortably, Services head into the game with some momentum on their side.

Assam, on the other hand, lost their first match against Goa. They could only manage to score 215 for nine batting first. Sarupam Purkayastha (45) and Riyan Parag (40) were significant scorers for them in the innings.

However, the runs did not prove to be enough as Goa got past the finish line in 48.3 overs with five wickets to spare. Roshan Alam picked up two wickets while Parag, Rahul Singh and Sarupam Purkayastha all chipped in with one wicket each.

Assam needs to showcase a better display with both bat and ball.
