After conceding a crucial 112-run lead in the first innings, Bengal were off to a forgettable start losing their top five wickets for mere 44 runs on the board. Vice-captain Sudip Chatterjee (21), skipper Manoj Tiwary (14) and stumper Shreevats Goswami (17) managed to get the starts but failed to convert when the team needed the most even as Bengal lost their remaining five wickets within a span of 42 runs.
