Rattled by a six-for from Bengal’s Ashoke Dinda, Railways fought back by taking four wickets at tea on Day Three to leave Bengal reeling at 46 for four in the Ranji Trophy 2013-14 quarter-finals on Friday.
Earlier in the day, Dinda’s six-for helped Bengal take a slender lead of three-runs. After the lunch break, Bengal have been rocked with regular strikes and it has been slow going. Anureet Singh was the star for Railways as he picked three wickets. Abhimanyu Easwaran was the first man to go as Anureet bowled him. Later, Krishnakant Upadhyay had Arindam Das caught behind for 5. The wickets continued to fall as when they were on 24, Sudip Chaterjee headed back to the dressing room.
Ultimately, they also lost Subhomoy Das for 15 as they went into lunch at 46 for four.
Bengal 317 and 46 for 4 (Subhomoy Das 15; Anureet Singh 3 22) lead Railways 314 (Arindam Ghosh 97, Mahesh Rawat 119; Ashok Dinda 6 for 105) by 49 runs.
