Arnab stars in EB win

Calcutta: Arnab Nandi, who stands a decent chance of being named in the Bengal squad for the Syed Mushtaq Ali Trophy, put up a solid all-round show that helped East Bengal to win the CAB Senior Knockout tournament.

In the final, on Thursday, at Eden Gardens, Arnab scored a fine 61-ball 66 and later, took three wickets bowling 11 overs as East Bengal beat arch-rivals Mohun Bagan by 42 runs.

Batting first, East Bengal finished at 225 in 44.3 overs before bowling Bagan out for 183 in 41.5 overs.

With Amit Das (four for 40) bowling a tidy line, Bagan had East Bengal wobbling at 121 for seven before Arnab took charge.
