MAH 164/4 vs BEN

 

So that brings to an end what has been Maharashtra’s day. They have now gone 50 runs ahead and this is a good day for them. We will be back tomorrow and hope that there is a game at Mohali. Until then, see you!

 


 

 

MAH 145/4 vs BEN

 

Kedar Jadhav has been dismissed now. Rohit Motwani walks out to the centre.

 


 

 

MAH 131/3 vs BEN

 

Maharashtra have taken the lead against Bengal and it is Kedar Jadhav, yet again, who is leading the way for them. He is on 34 not out and Ankeet Bawne is on 18.

 


 

 

MAH 114/3 vs BEN

 

Maharashtra have now equalled Bengal’s score and it is encouraging for them at this stage. They may have lost three wickets after tea, but there is no doubting the fact that they are in total control.

 


 

MAH 91/3 vs BEN

 

Bengal are gradually coming back in this game. Shukla now gets Vijay Zol.

 


 

 

MAH 78/2 vs BEN

 

Chirag Khurana was the first wicket to fall after tea as Bengal are roaring back into the game. Then Laxmi Ratan Shukla gets Khadiwale. Maharashtra are now 78 for two.

 


 

 

MAH 74/0 vs BEN

 

That is tea at Indore. Maharashtra are 74 for no loss with Chirag Khurana on 44 not out. This is total domination.

 


 

 

MAH 48/0 vs BEN

 

Maharashtra are in firm control. Openers Harshad Khadiwale and Chirag Khurana have taken them to nearly 50.

 


 

 

Play has been called off for the day at Mohali. We will have to wait until tomorrow for the game between Karnataka and Punjab to start.

 


 

 

BEN 114 all out vs MAH

 

Samad Fallah has taken seven for 54. Bengal have been bowled out for only 114

 


 

 

BEN 107/7 vs MAH

 

Maharashtra are in total control as Bengal have now lost their seventh wicket. Samad Fallah has five wickets now.

 


 

 

BEN 94/6 vs MAH

 

Bengal have slipped further as Dominic Joseph has dismissed the man who held it together until now. Arindam Das heads back for 29.

 


 

 

The rain has relented at Mohali and there is a chance that the game could start at 14:00 IST. Until then, we can only wait.

 

 

 


 

 

BEN 83/5 vs MAH

 

Bengal have gone into lunch at 83 for five. Samad Fallah comes back into the attack and has Laxmi Ratan Shukla. That is a big wicket for them as he has been Bengal’s star this season. Fallah now has four for 39.

 


 

 

BEN 76/4 vs MAH

 

Bengal fight with Arindam Das still in the middle. This has undoubtedly been Maharashtra’s session. Saha was dismissed by Harshad Khadiwale.

 


 

 

BEN 59/4 vs MAH

 

Wriddhiman Saha has been dismissed after a good little innings. Bengal in bigger trouble.

 


 

 

BEN 53/3 vs MAH

 

Bengal have recovered a touch after early losses. It is Wriddhiman Saha again who is leading them in this recovery and he has Arindam Das for company.

 

 

 


 

 

BEN 21/3 vs MAH

 

Samad Fallah is now dominating proceedings. This has rocked Bengal early on.

 


 

 

BEN 16/1 vs MAH

 

Easwaran and Arindam Das are batting in a tough start. The pitch does have a bit for both bowlers and batsmen.

 


 

 

BEN 2/1 vs MAH

 

Maharashtra draw first blood. Samad Fallah gets the first breakthrough for Maharashtra as Ghosh edges and Kedar Jadhav takes the catch at first-slip.

 


 

 

The news coming in is that Maharashtra are going to field first in their semi-final against Bengal at the Holkar Stadium, Indore.

 


 

 

We are getting news that there has been rain at Mohali and we could have a delay. So, we have to wait and see when the game begins between Punjab and Karnataka.

 


 

 

Welcome to the Live coverage of the Ranji Trophy 2013-14 semi-final clash between Punjab, Karnataka and Maharashtra, Bengal. Punjab are playing the semi-final on their home turf, whereas, Indore is hosting the other clash between a formidable batting side, Maharashtra and Bengal whose bowlers have kept them in the hunt.

 

Bengal, who have been a surprise package in the national championship, peaked at the right time defeating Uttar Pradesh, Tamil Nadu and Railways in three back-to back matches while Maharashtra recorded an inspirational eight-wicket win against defending champions Mumbai in the Lion’s den at the Wankhede Stadium.

Harbhajan Singh-led Punjab were comprehensively beaten by Karnataka in the group stages in Hubli last month, and would be keen on returning the favour when the two teams square off in what promises to be an exciting encounter. Karnataka, on the other side, will be hoping that their talented opener KL Rahul, who has so far scored 869 runs, continues his red-hot form.
