Bengal v India B

India B won by 21 runs

5.2

Patel to Basu, OUT, short ball and Basu attempts a pull, turns out to be fatal as he was on his front-foot. The ball took the top-edge and Bist had no problem taking that catch at mid-on after taking a few paces towards his right. Bengal already looking down the barrel here.

29.3

Patel to Sandipan Das, OUT, short again and towards the body, Das hooks it, but it goes high in the air towards the leg side where two fielders - deep fine-leg and deep square leg - were waiting for it. Harmeet calls for it and takes the catch, after juggling the ball a few times.

38.3

Binny to Saha, OUT, big wicket there, off a slower ball, that was more of a spinner's ball, off-cutter. Saha goes for a slog sweep but is too early in his shot and is hit on his back leg. The umpire has no problem in giving that out quickly. Big blow to Bengal's chances

WP Saha lbw b Binny 116 (128m 93b 11x4 4x6) SR: 124.73

Jadeja to SG Das, OUT, the batsman charged down and Jadeja bowled it short, fast and flat outside off stump and once the batsman missed it, he was too far down to get back. The bails were removed in a flash.

Patel to Nandi, OUT, slower ball, and Nandi wanted to go over mid-off but got the inside half of the bat, plays it straight back to Munaf who takes a regulation catch in front of his face. A threatening partnership has been broken now
