West Bengal, who resumed on 274 for eight were bowled out for 317 on Day Two in their first innings of the 2013-14 Ranji Trophy encounter against Railways at Eden Gardens in Kolkata. Anureet Singh took a four-wicket haul for the Railways team. Railways responded by amassing 233 for five at the end of the day’s play with Mahesh Rawat essaying a fine century. He remained not out on 105. Arindam Ghosh contributed 78.

Earlier on Day 1, Sudip Chatterjee and Abhimanyu Easwaran, showed maturity with a brilliant 163-run partnership before another familiar middle-order collapse saw West Bengal end the day at 274 for eight. Left-hander Sudip (96) played a responsible knock and was ably supported by right-hander Easwaran (65) as they resurrected the innings.

From a good position of 166 for two, they crumbled to 233 for eight. In fact, in the middle-order, only reserve Test specialist Wriddhiman Saha (60 not out) managed a good score as he added 41 runs for the undefeated ninth wicket stand with Ashoke Dinda (17 not out).

Brief scores:

West Bengal 317 (Abhimanyu Easwaran 65, Sudip Chatterjee 96; Anureet Singh 4 for 88) lead Railways 233 for 5 (Arindam Ghosh 78, Mahesh Rawat 105*;  Ashok Dinda 3 for 83) by 84 runs.
