Tiwary, Chatterjee steer Bengal out of trouble against Mumbai

Press Trust of India  |  Nagpur 

Skipper and Sudip Chatterjee struck hundreds as Bengal turned the tables on by wiping out the first innings deficit on the third and penultimate day of their Group A encounter here.

While Tiwary amassed 169 runs before being run out, Chatterjee scored 130 to take Bengal to 433 for 8 in their second innings. The team now has a 303-run lead, which seems suffice to save the match.

Overnight 198/3, Bengal put up an inspired batting performance riding on Tiwary and Chatterjee's big knocks to make up for the 99-run disaster in the first innings.

Tiwary struck 22 fours and a six in his 288-ball stay at the crease, while Chatterjee managed 18 hits to the fence in his 304-ball knock.

There were some useful contributions down the order as well with Pragyan Ojha's unbeaten 32-ball 30 being most notable.

For Mumbai, Dhawal Kulkarni grabbed four wickets for 108 runs in his 32 overs. Abhishek Nayar also picked up a couple of wickets.

Brief Scores:

Mumbai: 229

Bengal: 99 and 433/8 in 131 overs (169, Sudip Chatterjee 130, Dhawal Kulkarni 4/32).
