Bengal bowlers dominated Uttar Pradesh (UP) in their second Ranji Trophy 2024 game in Kanpur. After losing points against Andhra Pradesh in their first game, Bengal bowlers made sure they start their second with a great note. After a delayed start due to weather, Bengal bundled UP for a cheap 60 in the first inning.

Manoj Tiwary won the vital toss and decided to bowl first on a wicket that surely had many things for the pacers. On a green pitch in Kanpur, Bengal handed out debut cap to pacer Suraj Sindhu Jaiswal, who had performed well for his club on the CAB First division league.

After making his first-class debut, Suraj did not take much time to impress one and all with his first wicket. He sent off Aryan Juyal for 11 and post that, UP batters could not stand before the Bengal bowlers in Kanpur.

Against a top-class batting lineup with Nitish Rana, Priyam Garg, and Aksh Deep Nath, Bengal pacers were on the mark from the start. Showcasing their excellent line and length on the wicket that offered some assistance, Ishan Porel, Mohammed Kaif and Suraj restricted UP to 60 in the first inning.

Priyam Garg (4), Nitish Rana (11), Akhs Deep Nath (7), Karan Sharma (1) and Bhubaneshwar Kumar (2) could not help UP with experience and Bengal bowlers were too good at Green Park.

Mohammed Kaif took four wickets while debutant Suraj Sindhu Jaiswal took three wickets for Bengal in the first inning.

Bengal batters started the inning on a great note as the openers gave a 32 partnership on a tough wicket.
