A determined half-century by Bengal bats-man Sudip Chatterjee (57 batting) and his 81-run stand with Baba Indrajith (32 batting ) Ied India Green to 116 for 2 in response to India Red’s 337 at the Duleep Trophy match here on Saturday.
India Green lost opener Priyank Panchal (8) early with Vidharbha medium-pacer Rajneesh Gurbani having him caught by Shahbaz Nadeem for 12. Prashanth Chopra and Sudip Chatterjee put on 23 runs before the compact Inrajith negotiated the India Red attack led by Gurbani and accumulated runs well.
Scores: India Red 337 in 132.5 overs (Ashutosh Singh 80, Mihir Hirwani 61, Ankit Rajpoot 4/57, K. Vignesh 3/80) vs India Green 116/2 in 44 overs (Sudip Chatterjee 57 n.o., Baba Rajneesh Gurbani 2/43).
