Skipper Manoj Tiwary and Sudip Chatterjee struck hundreds as Bengal turned the tables on Mumbai by wiping out the first innings deficit on the third and penultimate day of their Ranji Trophy Group A encounter.

While Tiwary amassed 169 runs before being run out, Chatterjee scored 130 to take Bengal to 433 for 8 in their second innings. The team now has a 303-run lead, which seems suffice to save the match.

Overnight 198/3, Bengal put up an inspired batting performance riding on Tiwary and Chatterjee’s big knocks to make up for the 99-run disaster in the first innings.

Tiwary struck 22 fours and a six in his 288-ball stay at the crease, while Chatterjee managed 18 hits to the fence in his 304-ball knock.

There were some useful contributions down the order as well with Pragyan Ojha’s unbeaten 32-ball 30 being most notable.

For Mumbai, Dhawal Kulkarni grabbed four wickets for 108 runs in his 32 overs. Abhishek Nayar also picked up a couple of wickets.

Brief Scores:

Mumbai: 229

Bengal: 99 and 433/8 in 131 overs (Manoj Tiwary 169, Sudip Chatterjee 130, Dhawal Kulkarni 4/32).
