Calcutta: CAB failed to keep the momentum going, being bundled out for a paltry 157 against Indian Oil Corporation in their Buchi Babu invitational meet match in Chennai on Tuesday.
According to information received here, chasing 284 for a first innings lead, the Bengal batsmen had no answer to Rajesh Powar’s (seven for 57) left-arm spin. Subhamoy Das (43) and Amitava Chakraborty (37) were the notable scorers for CAB XI. At stumps, IOC were 82 for two, their overall lead being 208.
Meanwhile, Hyderabad XI, TNCA President’s XI and Combined Districts XI made it to the quarter finals.
IOC 284 & 82/2. CAB XI 157 (Subhamoy Das 43; Rajesh Powar 7/57).
Bengal spinners Sourashish Lahiri and Shib Sagar Singh will train under Laxman Sivaramakrishnan in the forthcoming spinners’ camp organised by the CAB. Though the association intended to have Deep Dasgupta for the keepers’ camp under Syed Kirmani, he will not be available due to his minor county commitments.
CAB finalised the list for the programme on Tuesday.
