Agartala: In a fantastic achievement, the Jammu and Kashmir cricket team qualified for Ranji Trophy quarterfinals for the first time since 2000, following a draw against Tripura in their final Group C league match in Agartala on Thursday.



The J&K team had taken the first innings lead and the draw was a expected result. With three points from the tie, J&K ended tied on 28 points with Goa but qualified on the basis of their marginally better points quotient.

J&K had a quotient of 1.006 as against Goa's 1.005 after the valley team ended the fourth and final day at 87 for two in a chase of 228.

J&K will play against Punjab at Baroda from January 8.
