Gujarat captain Parthiv Patel brought his experience to the fore against a listless Bengal attack as the visitors reached a commanding 315 for two at stumps at Eden Gardens.

Patel, who is locked in a direct fight for the reserve wicketkeeper's slot with Bengal's Wriddhiman Saha, did his cause no harm as he hit a patient 143.

He also inspired his opening partner Priyank Panchal who hit a solid 139 in a 284 stand.

Brief scores: Bengal 1st innings 560-6 decl., Gujarat 1st innings 315-2.
