  • Bengal win battle for first-innings points

    The game was eventually and predictably drawn and it was the unfashionable Bengal team that left Delhi with bruised ego, limb and three points from their Ranji Trophy season opener

  • Kohli stars on day of two halves

    Virat Kohli dominated the Bengal bowlers but his dismissal for 173 gave Bengal the upper hand in a day of contrasts, with Delhi still trailing by 145 runs

  • Delhi hit back on second day

    The Delhi bowlers ran in and made the ball seam, swing and cut to limit Bengal to 473 after visitors had started the day on 313 for 2

  • Das and placid Kotla track make Delhi toil

    On a Feroz Shah Kotla wicket which on its typical days, does little other than exist, Bengal scored 313 for 2 versus Delhi with opener Arindam Das's well-paced, unbeaten 150 the central note of a composed batting performance

  • The Kotla wicket has a mind of its own

    In the melodrama that is life around it and the lamentations that echo during the course of its normal day, the Feroz Shah Kotla wicket lay undeterred by slander and unimpressed by prediction
