Published on

Bengal captain Manoj Tiwary showcased his cricketing prowess in the 2024 Ranji Trophy clash against Assam, reaching a significant milestone of 10,000 First-Class runs while notching up his 30th century. The seasoned cricketer’s resilient knock played a pivotal role in Bengal’s recovery after a challenging start.

In a commendable display of skill, Tiwary remained unbeaten on 68 at the end of Day 1 and added a further 32 runs on Day 2, reaching a well-deserved century off 264 deliveries. His innings featured nine boundaries before he was dismissed with Bengal at 307/7.

Captain’s Contribution

Facing adversity with Bengal struggling at 57/4, Tiwary, along with Anustup Majumdar, led a remarkable comeback. Their formidable partnership of 211 runs steadied the ship, allowing Bengal to post a competitive first-innings total against Assam. After Majumdar’s departure, Tiwary continued to contribute, forming a 37-run partnership with Karan Lal before falling to Akash Sengupta.

Crossing the 10,000-Run Mark

Tiwary’s century not only propelled Bengal to a strong position but also marked his entry into the elite club of players who have scored 10,000 runs in First-Class cricket. Joining the likes of Pankaj Roy, Arun Lal, and Sourav Ganguly, Tiwary’s accomplishment is a testament to his consistency and longevity in the sport.

A Glimpse into Tiwary’s Recent Form

Before this century, Tiwary faced a challenging run in the ongoing Ranji Trophy, failing to surpass the 50-run mark in four innings. His struggles included scores of 32, 3, 19, and the recent century against Assam.

Reflecting on the Past Seasons

In the 2022-23 Ranji Trophy, Tiwary faced a lukewarm run, amassing 473 runs with six fifties but falling short of a century. Despite his individual performance, Bengal’s fourth-highest run-getter last season faced challenges converting starts into big scores.

Retirement Reversal

Despite announcing retirement before the previous season, Tiwary, after consultation with CAB president Snehashis Ganguly, decided to extend his cricketing career. Leading Bengal to the Ranji Trophy final last season, Tiwary’s dedication to the sport is evident, complemented by his role as West Bengal’s Sports Minister.

Match Summary

Bengal, recovering from a difficult start, showcased resilience as Tiwary and Majumdar’s partnership, along with Lal and Jaiswal’s contributions, propelled them to a substantial total of 405 in the first innings. Assam’s Mukhtar Hussain claimed 4/86, and Dharani Rabha secured two wickets in the face of Bengal’s batting onslaught.
