Kolkata: Bengal scripted history during the Ranji Trophy quarter-final match against Jharkhand at the Just Cricket Academy ground in Bangalore on Wednesday.
The Abhimanyu Easwaran-led team scored a mammoth 773/7 in the first essay of the quarter-final. Bengal’s 9 batters reached the fifty-plus score that took them to history books.
Two of the batters, Sudip Gharami (186) and Anustup Majumdar (117) hit tons, while the remaining seven scored solid half-centuries to put Bengal in the driver’s seat.
Bengal erased a 129-year record — scripted by Australians against Cambridge University Past & Present in 1893.
