Weather Report: 

The weather is all clear for this game although it wasn’t the case in the previous game at this very ground and city. There should be some swing on offer due to the cloudy conditions at the ground on Thursday with the temperatures bound to be in the 30s

Pitch Report: 

A high-scoring game is expected on Wednesday with the average first innings score here this year being 255. Pacers should have a major say with the spinners also coming into the play once the ball gets old.

Predicted Playing XI: 


Bengal shouldn’t be making any changes to the side that featured against Tripura. Abhimanyu Easwaran is due for a big score although Abhishek Raman and Shreevats Goswami have done well with over 400 runs scored between them. Manoj Tiwary is another experienced candidate who should be crucial to their fortunes. Their bowling unit has a lot of variety with Ishan Porel and Shahbaz Ahmed starring in previous game for them.

Abhimanyu Easwaran (C),  Shreevats Goswami (WK),  Abhishek Raman,  Manoj Tiwary,  Ritwik Chowdhury,  Agniv Pan,  Akash Deep,  Arnab Nandi,  Ishan Porel,  Shahbaz Ahmed  and Ashok Dinda


Bihar is reeling at the bottom of the table and look to salvage some pride. Although the likes of Babul Kumar and Ashutosh Aman have impressed at times, they haven’t been able to fire as a unit. Much is expected from Shasheem Rathour, who is capable of scoring quick runs in the top order. Vivek Kumar is another such individual whose performance is crucial to Bihar’s fortunes on Thursday.

Top Picks: 

Bengal openers, Abhimanyu Easwaran and Shreevats Goswami should make full use of what is a good pitch to bat on.

Manoj Tiwary and Sachin Kumar are the designated allrounders while Babul Kumar is expected to stage a good performance against the might of Bengal’s bowling unit.
