Elite, Group C, Vijay Hazare Trophy at Jaipur, Oct 3 2019

RAJASTHAN 265/4 (50 overs)

BENGAL 266/5 (49/50 overs)

In the Group C encounter at the Vijay Hazare Trophy played at Jaipur, Bengal went past Rajasthan by five wickets in a relatively easy tie. Electing to field first, the Bengal bowlers kept a leash around the Rajasthan batsman as they could only make 265 runs for the loss of four wickets in their 50 overs.

Rajasthan captain Mahipal Lomror took his time to settle down as he made 79 runs in 100 balls and was well assisted by a half-century from Arjit Gupta (56 in 57 balls). Ashok Menari and Rajesh Bishnoi batted out of their skins to better the run-rate and help Rajasthan reach a respectable total.

The experienced Ashok Dinda claimed two wickets while Arnab Nandi kept things tight with two wickets and gave away only 32 runs in his 10 overs. In reply, Bengal captain Abhimanyu Easwaran continued his good run with the bat as he notched yet another half-century. But the highlight of the day proved to be Abhishek Raman, who hit a magnificent 108-ball 122 as Bengal cruised to a five-wicket victory. Indian pacer Deepak Chahar and Khaleel Ahmed remained wicketless whereas Ravi Bishnoi picked up three wickets.
