Kolkata: Nov 19, 2012

 

Manoj Tiwary served a timely reminder to the selectors with an inspirational 191 as hosts Bengal are eyeing for bonus points against Gujarat in a third round Ranji Trophy encounter at the Eden Gardens.

 

The Bengal skipper more than made amends for a demoralizing defeat against Punjab in the last match as they scored a massive 526 for seven before declaring and then had Gujarat on the mat as they were reduced to 18 for four.

 

Tiwary came in to bowl his leg-breaks and got Gujarat skipper Parthiv Patel caught by Wriddhiman Saha.

 

Gujarat now are 248 runs behind with only six wickets in hand and even though the light fades fast at the Eden Gardens, Bengal’s pace trio of Ashok Dinda, Sourav Sarkar and Shami Ahmed will be able to take the remaining six wickets.

 

“I will only feel happy about my innings once Bengal win the match with bonus points. An innings like this becomes significant when the team wins. Personally, it was satisfying getting Parthiv out as he is a big innings player. Hopefully, my pacers will now do the job for me,” Tiwary told PTI after the match.

 

The Bengal skipper has been one player who is known to score ‘Daddy Hundreds’ and Monday was one such day. He carried on from his overnight score of 102 as he batted for close to eight hours facing 312 balls in the process. He hit 21 boundaries and a six in the process.

 

He enjoyed two fruitful partnerships — 145 with Anustup Majundar who showed glimpses of returning to form with a fine 68 with 14 boundaries.

 

Then it was former Bengal skipper Laxmi Ratan Shukla who continued with his blazing form hitting 113 off only 117 balls with 15 boundaries and a six.
