Bengal concede lead despite Ganguly ton

All was going well for Bengal on Day 3. Stand-in skipper Sourav Ganguly led from the front to notch up a fluent century (135, 20x4, 1x6) and the team needed just 41 runs to gain the first innings lead with four wickets in hand.

All was going well for Bengal on Day 3. Stand-in skipper Sourav Ganguly led from the front to notch up a fluent century (135, 20x4, 1x6) and the team needed just 41 runs to gain the first innings lead with four wickets in hand.

But Bengal were left kicking themselves as hosts Haryana managed to dismiss them in the space of 22 runs and virtually ensure three points from this Ranji Trophy Super League match on Thursday.

At stumps, Haryana were 42 for one.http://www.hindustantimes.com/Images/HTEditImages/Images/02-12-pg22c.jpg
