Faiz Fazal and Sanjay Ramaswamy took Vidarbha in command

Vastavam web:  Centuries from openers Faiz Fazal and Sanjay Ramaswamy took Vidarbha to a commanding 285 for one against Bengal on day one of their Ranji Trophy group D fixture here today.In the form of his life, left-handed Fazal hit his third successive century of the season with a sublime 142 (22×4), while Ramaswamy gave fine support at the other end with a patient 117 (14×4).Fresh from his 125 and 136 against Chhattisgarh and Services respectively, Fazal carried on from where he left off.
Both Fazal and Ramaswamy anchored the innings and completed their half-centuries in the first session.The duo then completed their triple-figure milestones on either side of the tea-break with Fazal first to get to the mark in 184 balls, his 14th first-class century.Ramaswamy took 191 balls for his third firstclass century as the duo continued to frustrate Tiwary who himself was made to bowl three overs.Bengal sorely missed the services of India pacer Mohammed Shami who did not get the Board’s clearance, even as the other Test cap Wriddhiman Saha featured in their lineup.
