View dismissal JJ Basu c Paunikar b Anureet Singh 9 20 1 0 45.00

View dismissal SP Goswami b Mishra 38 50 6 0 76.00
18.1 once again Goswami unable to convert the start to a big one, cleaned up by Mishra. He comes round the wicket and moves in touch with good bounce. He leans froward and goes for a drive, movement beats it completely and goes through bat and pad to knock the stumps. 66/3

11.2 Shukla to Goswami, oh No! That's really a bad call from Chatterjee, it was on a length outside off, Goswami leans forward and pushes it infront of cover. Chatterjee was already half way down the track as Goswami busy watching the ball, Saini charges at it and a direct throw to the bowler's end. He slides but bat was in the air though it. 39/2

View dismissal WP Saha c Ghosh b Ashish Yadav 16 30 0 0 53.33
29.2 and a wicket falls when the partnership was looking good, short of a length which spun away from off.

View dismissal LR Shukla* c Saini b Ashish Yadav 3 9 0 0 33.33
31.2 captain departs as he looked for a big one, tossed up delivery from round the wicket. He comes down the track for a hoick over mid-on, gets it at the lower half of the bat which went straight into the throat of Saini at long-on. Poor thinking-shot section from Shukla. 109/5

View dismissal V Pratap Singh b Saini 2 4 0 0 50.00
47.1 penultimate goes, perfect for a tail-ender, length delivery around off which holds the line. That's quite slower to the expectation of Veer, 93kph, goes for an almighty heave as he was beaten by the pace, shattered the off stump. 184/9
