Bowlers were again on the money as they put Bengal in control in their Ranji Trophy Group A clash against Uttarakhand at the Abhimanyu Cricket Academy ground in Dehradun.

At stumps on Day II, Uttarakhand were wobbling at 104/6 in response to Bengal’s first-innings total of 387. Leftarm spinners Shahbaz Ahmed and Pradipta Pramanik, and pacer Akash Deep struck twice each to have the home team in all sorts of trouble.

Uttarakhand were reeling at 48/6, but their No.3 batsman Kunal Chandela (40 batting) and Akhil Rawat (32 batting) managed to put up some sort of resistance in the form of their seventh-wicket partnership that has added 56 so far.

Shahbaz struck with the new ball once again, giving Bengal the early breakthrough when he dismissed openers Jiwanjot Singh and Avneesh Sudha in his next over.

Brief scores: Bengal 387 (A. Easwaran 165). Uttarakhand 104/6 (P. Pramanik 2/17, A. Deep 2/21). At stumps, Day II.
