Vijay Hazare trophy: J&K beat Haryana but fail to advance
Nadaun: Jammu and Kashmir scripted a fine eight-run win over Haryana in a an inconsequential league match of the Vijay Hazare Trophy (North Zone) one-day tournament here Friday.
J&K posted a challenging 284 for eight after being put in to bat and limited Haryana to 276 all out in 49.4 overs.
Ian Chauhan (64), Shubham Khajuria (45) and Samiullah Beigh (47) made the runs for J&K while it was a collective bowling effort with Ram Dayal (3/58), Parvez Rasool (2/40), Waseem Raza (2/48) and Umar Nazir (2/50) sharing the wickets.
Joginder Sharma's valiant 64 off 60 balls were not enough on the day for Haryana.
