It’s do-or-die for Bengal

Calcutta/Rajkot: After an eight-wicket defeat in their last match against India A, Bengal will be in a must win situation against India B on Monday if they want to qualify for the NKP Salve Challenger Trophy final.

Bengal’s cause was helped by India B when they lost narrowly to India A by four runs.

A late assault from Cheteshwar Pujara (158 not out) went in vain as India A rode on a fine century from opener Shikhar Dhawan (152) to beat India B.

Dhawan stroked his way to 152 from 139 balls with the help of 20 boundaries as India A scored a mammoth 335 for four from their stipulated 50 overs after they chose to bat at Saurashtra Cricket Association Stadium.
