CHENNAI: Tamil Nadu routed Assam by 10 wickets in their Elite, Group B clash here in Kolkata on Tuesday. Assam struggled to get going after TN skipper Dinesh Karthik asked them to bat. Tight spells from spinners — R Sai Kishore and Murugan Ashwin — meant Assam could manage only 126/7. Sai Kishore, Ashwin and M Mohammed claimed two wickets apiece.

The modest target was never going to be enough given TN strong batting line-up. As was expected, the last edition finalists achieved the target in 15 overs without losing a wicket. Narayan Jagdeesan (78) scored an unbeaten fifty while C Hari Nishanth made 47 not out.
