Thursday, January 15 2004 17:23 Hrs (IST)

Silchar:Powered by a strokeful 97 by former India opener Sadagopan Ramesh, South Zone trounced Central Zone by 62 runs in their Deodhar trophy One-day match at the S M Dev Stadium in Silchar on Thursday.

Electing to bat first after winning the toss, South Zone amassed 217 all out in 49.5 overs.

The South Zone bowlers then bundled out Central Zone for a paltry 155 with Tinu Yohannan and S C Nair scalping three wickets each.

Anoop Dave provided some late order resistance scoring 36 off 38 balls but other Central Zone batsmen provided little resistance.

Earlier riding on a well made 97 by Ramesh which included nine fours, South Zone made 217 with spinner Abbas Ali of Central Zone taking a brilliant haul of six for 25 runs to prevent the Southerners from reaching 250 mark.
