On the other hand Manoj is unbeaten on 70 off 172 deliveries. He hit five boundaries. Manoj, who struck a century in the semifinal against Dibrugarh, was seen with full of confidence as he middled the ball right from the beginning although the wicket was little damp due to impact of rain.

Only 58 overs of play was possible instead of 90 overs as heavy rain forced to cut short day�s play.

Brief scores: NFRSA 1st innings 163/2 (Parviz Aziz 74, Manoj Malo batting 70, Kunal Sarma batting 7; Abir Chakraborty 2/47).
