RANJI TROPHY COMMENTARY
Bengal vs Jharkhand , Dhruva: Another bright and sunny day at the Just Cricket Academy – but the last one for Jharkhand in the tournament. Anustup Majumdar and Manoj Tiwary will hope to stay as long as they can in the middle and get some much-needed practice ahead of the semis.
STUMPS, DAY 4

After Mumbai and Madhya Pradesh sealed their semifinal spots on Thursday, the game between Bengal and Jharkhand extended to the reserved fifth day.
On Friday, when the match will resume, Bengal, which currently has 551 runs in the lead, will look to score some quick runs to let its bowlers wrap up Jharkhand’s second innings for a win.
On Day 4, Virat Singh’s brave 113 not out against Bengal’s menacing bowling attack meant the latter has to wait to seal its place in the semifinals.

Coming its second innings, Bengal lost three quick wickets for 76 runs, leaving Anustup Majumdar and Manoj Tiwary to hold the guard.
