In the first day of their Ranji Trophy Group A match in Dehradun on Tuesday, Bengal’s opener and reserve member of the Indian Test team, Abhimanyu Easwaran, continued his magnificent run in first-class cricket by scoring his fourth consecutive hundred, helping Bengal to a total of 269 for 3 against Uttarakhand.

Bengal, playing Uttarakhand in a Ranji Trophy Group A encounter in Dehradun on Tuesday, was 269 for 3 after the first day thanks to a century from reserve opener Abhimanyu Easwaran, a member of the Indian Test team. More satisfying than the 141 not out is the fact that it was scored at the stadium named after him and run by his father, Ranganathan Parameswaran Easwaran, Abhimanyu Cricket Academy Stadium. The decision to field by Uttarakhand captain Aditya Tare backfired, as Abhimanyu put on 170 runs with another in-form man, Sudip Gharami (90), for the second wicket.

Together with the all-arounder Sayan Sekhar Mondal, Abhimanyu put up 84 runs for the first wicket (18).

Abhimanyu kept his spot in the Indian squad for the Border-Gavaskar Trophy after smashing 12 fours and a six on a beautifully wide field.

His last four first-class scores were 141, 157 (both against Bangladesh A), 170 (against Nagaland), and 141*.

In a nutshell, Abhimanyu Easwaran batted 141, and Sudip Kr Gharami scored 90 as Bengal defeated Uttarakhand 269-3 in 84.3 overs.

Nagaland scored 291 runs for 6 when against Odisha in Cuttack (Chetan Bisht 94, Shrikant Mundhe 66; Suryakant Pradhan 3/69).

Baroda scored 327 runs in 90 overs against HP in Vadodara (Vishnu Solanki scored 164 runs at the crease, and Kanwar Abhinay took 4 wickets).
