Ranji Trophy Final: Saurashtra in a commanding position

Debjit Mukherjee, Kolkata: Saurashtra’s trusted middle order trio — Sheldon Jackson, Arpit Vasavada and Chirag Jani — and opener Harvik Desai struck magnificent half-centuries to put the away side in a commanding position against Bengal in the Ranji Trophy final at the Eden Gardens here on Friday.


Resuming from 81 for two, Saurashtra felt more at home at the Eden than Bengal to score 317 for five in the first innings and secure a substantial 143-run lead on the second day.
