Tiwary confident of taking first innings lead, says can bowl out Saurashtra for another 60 runs on Day 2
Kolkata: Bengal batters’ flop show may have given Saurashtra the opening day advantage on Thursday, but home side captain Manoj Tiwary made a tall claim that their bowlers can bundle out the visitors in another 60 runs in the first hour’s play on Friday.
In reply to Bengal’s 174 all out, Saurashtra were 81 for 2, trailing by 93 runs at stumps on Day 1, with in-form opener Harvik Desai batting on 38.
Saurashtra still have batters like Arpit Vasavada, Chirag Jani and Sheldon Jackson to come. The trio and Desai have scored the bulk of runs for Saurashtra this season with more than 2460 runs among them.
