Bengal's Dinda, Ghosh deny Tripura at the death

I'm here: Ashok Dinda gestures before the start of the match BCCI

Tripura needed 11 runs to win off the final 12 balls of their match but Bengal's Ashok Dinda and Sayan Ghosh denied them to pull off a come-from-behind victory at Eden Gardens. Chasing 153, Tripura seemed quite comfortable at 142 for 4 in the 18th over. That's when their captain Manisankar Murasingh fell for 27 off 8 balls. Dinda then came on and ripped out two wickets in four balls, including the set batsman Smit Patel for 41 off 33. And Ghosh finished the job, keeping the opposition to 147 for 8.

Bengal's total of 152 was built around a 61-run partnership between captain Manoj Tiwary and Pankaj Shaw. The two batsmen helped the score recuperate from 49 for 4 in the ninth over, and with Debabrata Das smacking 23 off 11 balls at the end, it reached proportions just large enough to be defended.

Anurag Sarangi's 48-ball 58, and a cameo from Abhishek Yadav, who struck an unbeaten 26 off nine deliveries, helped Odisha chase down a target of 150 with three wickets to spare against Jharkhand in Kolkata. Odisha were in a promising position at 79 for 1 in the 13th over before they slumped to 119 for 5 by the 18th over. With only four balls left in the game, they were 139 for 7 before Yadav pulled the side out of trouble. He struck two fours and as many sixes, helping Odisha reach the target with a ball to spare. Earlier, opener Ishank Jaggi (47) and Kumar Deobrat (44 not out) helped Jharkhand recover from 27 for 2 to 149 for 5 after being put in to bat. Odisha's bowlers, however, were also profligate, contributing 20 extras to Jharkhand's total.
