Mohali: After his dream first-class debut where he got a double hundred against Hyderabad, young Punjab opener Jiwanjot Singh scored another matured hundred in his second game as Punjab are on their way to bat Bengal out of the second round Ranji Trophy encounter, on Saturday.

Replying to Bengal's first innings score of 326, Jiwanjot who is batting on 102 in company of another centurion Mayank Sidhana (107 batting, 190 balls, 17x4) grinded a pedestrian Bengal attack as home team reached a formidable 229 for one at stumps.

While Punjab need another 98 runs to take first innings lead, they would ideally look to consolidate and build on the start they have got and push for an innings victory.
