Manoj hits 124
A brilliant 124 by Manoj Tewari helped Kalighat pile up 351 for eight, six runs short of Sporting Union's first innings total, on the Day II of the A.N. Ghosh final at the Eden on Wednesday.
Manoj was ably supported by Deep Dasgupta (44) and Soham Ghosh (43). Sporting Union 'keeper Manoj Shaw suffered an injury after the ball bounced awkwardly and hit just below his right eye. Avishek Jhunjhunwala then replaced Shaw behind the stumps.
With a day still to go, the match is evenly poised, as both the teams would have to play 40 overs each on the final day.
Sporting Union 357/9. Kalighat 351/8 (Manoj Tewari 124, Deep Dasgupta 44, Soham Ghosh 43).
P. Sen meet deferred again
The Cricket Association of Bengal (CAB) couldn't decide the dates of the P. Sen Invitation Trophy even on Wednesday. Earlier, CAB said that the tournament may be played in the last week of May.
But the unavailability of some of the top players, has forced the CAB to hold it back further. The players will represent their office team in a tournament in Chandigarh.
The CAB, however, announced that Shambazar will take on Mohun Bagan in the opener. Combined University are pitted against East Bengal and Kalighat play CAB Presidents' XI. Sporting Union face the challenge of ERSA.
