Sangram Atitkar remained unbeaten on 141 as Maharashtra reached 378 for seven against Bengal in their first innings on Day Two of their Ranji Trophy 2013-14 semi-final on Sunday. Maharashtra’s lead has now surged to 264 in the first innings.

Atitkar struck 24 boundaries and scored 141 not out off 201 balls as his century defied Bengal on the field.

Ankit Bawne missed out on a well-deserved century as he fell for 89 earlier in the innings.

Earlier in the day, the Bengal side could make only one breakthrough as their skipper Laxmi Ratan Shukla trapped his Maharashtra counterpart Rohit Motwani for eight in the first session.

Motwani failed to add any to his overnight total.

Motwani’s dismissal brought Sangram Atitkar at the crease, as he teamed up with Bawne to take their side past the 200-run mark.

Brief scores:

Bengal 114 (Arindam Das 37, Wriddhiman Saha 29; Samad Fallah 7 for 58) trail Maharashtra 378 for 7 (Ankeet Bawne 89*, Sangram Atitkar 141*;  Laxmi Ratan Shukla 3 for 76) by 264 runs.
