Maharashtra extended their lead to 82 runs as they reached 196 for five in their first innings, on Day Two of the Ranji Trophy semi-final at Indore on Sunday. Ankit Bawne smashed an unbeaten half-century on the second day.

 

Maharashtra lost an early wicket when Bengal captain Laxmi Ratan Shukla trapped Rohit Motwani for eight.

 

Early on the first day, Maharashtra ended Day One of their Ranji Trophy 2013-14 semi-final against Bengal at 164 for four. Earlier, they had bowled Bengal out for 114, courtesy Samad Fallah’s brilliant spell of seven for 58.

 

In reply, Maharashtra openers got them off to a good start and laid the foundation for a good score and that has helped them take a lead of 50.

 

Fallah was the star of the Maharashtra bowling as he rattled the Bengal top order early in the morning. They were down to 21 for three when Wriddhiman Saha and Arindam Das commenced a mini recovery, taking Bengal past 50.

 

However, Saha was dismissed by Harshad Khadiwale for 29 and then, Bengal lost Laxmi Ratan Shukla as Fallah picked up his fourth. They went into lunch at 83 for five.

 

Bengal 114 (Arindam Das 37, Wriddhiman Saha 29; Samad Fallah 7 for 58) trail Maharashtra 196 for 5 (Chirag Khurana 48, Kedar Jadhav 40, Ankeet Bawne 51*; Ashok Dinda 2 for 45, Laxmi Ratan Shukla 3 for 57) by 50 runs.
