Kolkata: Defending champions Bengal put up yet another listless batting display to concede a humiliating bonus point to minnows Tripura, who sailed to a two-wicket victory to conclude their campaign on a high in East Zone leg of the Vijay Hazare Trophy domestic tournament in Kolkata on Thursday.

With seven points in its kitty, Bengal will now have to beat East Zone leaders Assam in their concluding league match on Friday to advance into the knock-out stage.

Tripura, on the other hand, departed on a high as they picked up a bonus point victory in their concluding league fixture after suffering three defeats on the trot.
