Sudip Chatterjee smashed a masterful 98 off 137 deliveries to help Mohun Bagan post a mammoth 294/6 against Bhowanipur Club at the end of the first day's play in CAB First Division League Group A at Eden Gardens today.
Rakesh Krishnan also scored a quickfire 90-ball 87 for Bagan while Sandipan Das was the highest wicket-taker among Bhowanipur bowlers with 3 for 62.
Earlier put to bat first Bagan lost openers Vivek Singh (19) and Jayojit Basu (16) early to get reduced to 43/2.
Sudip showed off his gritty skills and later stiched a 111-run partnership with Krishnan before missing out on a well-deserved century acter being removed by Sarasij Mukherjee.
Kunj Sharma (24*) and Rajkumar Pal (2*) remained unbeaten for the Mariners while Sarasij Mukherjee bagged 2 wickets for the opponents.
In another match Police Athletic Club made 83 runs without losing any wicket against Paikpara Sporting Club in total 31 overs played today.
