Bengal have gone into lunch on Day One of their Ranji Trophy 2013-14 semi-final against Maharashtra at 83 for five. Samad Fallah had an outstanding session as his three wickets jolted Bengal early, before they managed to recover slightly. But, then Bengal lost two more as lunch neared and Fallah got his fourth.

Maharashtra started very well as Koushik Ghosh was dismissed by Fallah early in the day with the score only on two. Abhimanyu Easwaran then joined Arindam Das in the middle and they helped Bengal cross 20. However, Fallah came back to trap Easwaran leg-before. Sudip Chaterjee was also trapped in front off the first ball he faced leaving Bengal in trouble at 21 for three.

It was then that Wriddhiman Saha joined Das and rescued Bengal from the muddle. He essayed momentary boundaries to get the scoring going, but was then dismissed for 29 as he was caught behind by Rohit Motwani off Harshad Khadiwale. Then, Laxmi Ratan Shukla, the skipper and star of Bengal’s season was dismissed for 14 as Fallah came back into the attack to dismiss him.

Brief scores:

Bengal 83 for 5 (Arindam Das 21*, Wriddhiman Saha 29; Samad Fallah 4 for 39) vs Maharashtra
