Patiala, Oct 14 (UNI) Punjab inflicted a crushing defeat on Jammu and Kashmir, winning by an innings and 380 runs on the penultimate day of the Inter-State cricket tournament (Under-22) for C K Nayadu Trophy here today at the Dhruv Pandove Stadium.
Overnight 647 for 7, Punjab declared the innings without taking guard this morning when the play began.

For Punjab, Rahul Sharma, who bagged 4 wickets, conceding 14 runs, was almost unplayable. Harmit Singh took 2 for 27.
