Prayas (91), Vikas (61) hand Bengal
U-25 vital first innings lead against Tripura
23rd January 2023
Prayas Ray Barman (91) and Vikas Singh (61) batted superbly to help Bengal post 295 in their first innings against Tripura in the Col C K Nayudu Trophy on Monday.
After bowling out Tripura for just 205 in their first innings, Bengal posted a challenging total which helped them earn a vital first innings lead.
Tripura, in their second innings, were 50/1 at stumps on Day 2 at the 22 Yards, Salt Lake.
Earlier, resuming the day from overnight score of 87/3, Bengal found themselves in a bit of a trouble at 105/6 with set batter Kazi Junaid Saifi (31) back in the hut.
From there on, Prayas and Vikas helped the home side stage a brilliant comeback, adding a much-needed 142-run partnership for the seventh wicket to take team past the 240-run mark.
Prayas was unlucky to miss out on a well-deserved century.
Kaushik Maity (28 not out) played a handy knock at the end as Bengal team’s innings ended at 84.5 overs. Saruk Hossain bagged five wickets for Tripura.
