Tuesday, January 6 2004 15:33 Hrs (IST)

Lucknow:Riding on an unbeaten half-century by opening Karan Goel and some fine bowling by Asim Gupta (3/12) and Ashutosh Sharma (3/22), India defeated Singapore by eight wickets in the Under-19 Commonwealth Cricket Championship at the K D Singh Babu stadium in Lucknow. With this win, India has garnered 18 points from three outings in Group A.

Electing to bat, Singapore had a blazing start with skipper Glenn Meyer (59) and Christopher Janik (26) registering an opening stand of 93 runs.

But an unprecedented collapse followed the first wicket as Singapore folded out for 143 runs in 46.4 overs, two balls before the end of their allotted 47 overs. Sharma made a hat-trick in the last over of the innings.

In reply, opener Goel (78 no) gave a confident start with Rahul Parmar (19) and then added 52 runs with Vipin Kumar (25) for the second wicket to ensure an easy victory for the hosts. Peter Muruthi and Jackie shared one wicket each for Singapore.
