Indore, Feb 8 (PTI) Bengal's crisis man Anustup Majumdar and young Sudip Gharami slammed centuries under pressure but ceded ground to reigning champions Madhya Pradesh at the fag end of the day in their Ranji Trophy semifinal here, which was evenly poised on Wednesday.

Displaying resilience, Majumdar (120) and Gharami (112) put together 241 runs from 414 balls as Bengal rebuilt the innings from being reduced to 51 for 2 in less than an hour into the opening day's play at the Holkar Stadium here.

But the duo departed in quick succession with Madhya Pradesh striking with the new ball to open up the match in the final session.
