1st January 2023
Debutants Sayed Irfan Aftab, Yuvraj Keswani and Debopratim Halder made the best use of the opportunity putting up an impressive show to put Bengal in a commanding position against Mizoram at stumps on Day 1 in the Col C K Nayudu Trophy at the Gokulbhai Somabhai Patel Stadium in Nadiad on Sunday.
Batting first, Mizoram never looked comfortable as Bengal bowled according to their plans to bag wickets at regular intervals.
Nunfela (32) was the only Mizoram batsman who managed to score some crucial runs but the rest fell without giving a fight.
For Bengal, Prayas Ray Barman (4-9), Debopratim (3-31) and Sayed Irfan (2-13) bowled superbly to bundle out Mizoram for just 89 in 37 overs.
In reply, debutant Keswani (137) and Ranjot Singh Kharia (142) were in absolute mindblowing touch with the bat as the duo remained unbeaten at stumps to help Bengal post 279 for no loss in 49 overs.
Enroute their innings, Keswani smashed 16 fours and 1 six while Ranjot struck 13 boundaries and 3 sixes.
Besides the trio, Gaurav Singh Chauhan and Amritraj Upadhyay too made their debut.
