Jammu, Mar 20 (PTI) Unseeded Assam upset the applecart of Uttar Pradesh with a 3-2 win in a first-round match of Group H at the 84th Inter-State National Table Tennis Championships here on Monday.

The eight-seeded UP team, a quarterfinalist in the last edition in Meghalaya, failed to live up to expectations.

UP had three experienced players in their ranks, led by Abhishek Yadav, Divyansh Srivastava and Sarth Mishra, who could have done justice to their selection and made a bright beginning to the campaign here.
