Anustup lead Bengal fightback against Karnataka



29th February 2020
At 67 for 6, Karnataka thought they had done the job 15 minutes past lunch break on the opening day of the semi-final match against host Bengal at Eden Gardens today. They had, however, not taken one Anustup Majumdar into account who scored a career defining 120 not out as Bengal reached 275 for nine.
Aided by the fast improving Shahbaz Ahmed and batting revelation Akashdeep, the pint-sized all-rounder Anustup Majumdar plotted a recovery that looked classy and audacious at the same time. The voices of the 5000 odd people, who had gathered to witness Bengal prowl, once again found tongue as they said ...picture abhi baki hai mere dost!!
When Anustup came out to bat, Bengal's batting looked like the ruins of Mohenjo Daro, that had once raised hope but was ravaged by the marauding trio of Prasidh Krishna, Abhimanyu Mithun and Ronit. But that hardly made any difference to his life. Anustup got about collecting runs, shoring up boundaries, knocking in the gaps for twos and showing glimpses of his skillset with flashing drives, elegant cuts and controlled hooks.
