Kalyani (WB) : Centuries from openers Faiz Fazal and Sanjay Ramaswamy took Vidarbha to a commanding 285 for one against Bengal on day one of their Ranji Trophy group D fixture.

In the form of his life, left-handed Fazal hit his third successive century of the season with a sublime 142 (22×4), while Ramaswamy gave fine support at the other end with a patient 117 (14×4).

Ramaswamy was unbeaten with Wasim Jaffer (18) when bad light stopped play after 83 overs. Bengal captain Manoj Tiwary’s decision to bowl after winning the toss backfired as the Vidarbha openers put up a solid 259-run opening partnership on a frustrating day for the home team bowlers.
