Yashpal Singh and Iqbal Abdulla shared seven wickets between them as Sikkim bundled out Manipur for 120 in its abandoned Plate Group match of the Vijay Hazare Trophy here on Saturday.

Rain played spoilsport in all the three Plate group matches scheduled here but there was some action in store at the Rajiv Gandhi International Stadium where Yashpal claimed 4/22, including two wickets of last two balls as Manipur innings lasted for 30.4 overs after it elected to bat.

The former Mumbai left-arm spinner, Abdulla was most impressive with his astonishing figures of 7-4-4-3.

Chasing 121, Sikkim got off to a disastrous start as they lost two wickets without scoring any run in the first over but the weather God came to its rescue as no game was possible after the first over with both teams settling for two points apiece.
