The Punjab team was defeated by 48 runs in their Group A encounter with the Bengal team to enter the quarterfinals of the Ranji Trophy.

Chasing a target of 190 runs, Punjab made a mess of their run chase and got bowled out for 141. The spinners dominated the game with Bengal left-arm spinner Shahbaz Ahmed picking up four wickets in the second innings to take his match haul to 11.

Resuming Day 3 at 199/9, Bengal scored only three more runs to set Punjab a 190-run target. It turned out to be enough in a low-scoring game with Punjab getting bowled out in 47. 3 overs. Ramandeep Singh (69* off 104) ran out of partners in the end. Bengal gained six points from the win. This pushed them on the top of the standings.
