Raipur : Ashok Dinda made it a memorable 100th first-class game for himself with figures of 10 for 47, overshadowing India star Mohammed Shami’s match-haul of eight wickets as Bengal walloped Chhattisgarh by an innings and 160 runs in a Ranji Trophy Group D encounter, here on Tuesday.

Following on, Chhattisgarh started the final day at 229 for 5 but lost the final five wickets for only 30 more runs as they were all out for 259 in their second innings, reports PTI.

The match was over in less than 12 overs as Shami and Dinda shared the spoils between them.

While Dinda’s second innings figures were 3/26 in addition to 7/21 in the first essay, it was Shami, who really made the difference in the second innings with six for 61. Shami’s match figures were 8 for 105 –a reminder to the selectors that he is in fine form.

Most of Shami’s wickets were either leg-before or bowled to right-hand batsmen – an indication that he was getting the ball to jag back.

Dinda, on the other hand, bowled his customary hit the deck the stuff with occasional fuller delivery getting his 23rd five-wicket and sixth 10-wicket haul in first class cricket.

Dinda is one of the leading wicket-takers in Bengal’s cricketing history with 364 scalps from 100 first-class games.
