Saurashtra defeated Bengal by nine wickets to lift the Ranji Trophy title for the second time here at the Eden Gardens on Sunday.
“We have made some mistakes due to which we are in this situation today, we will try to improve by focusing on our mistakes. This is just a game, sometimes there is success, sometimes there is disappointment,” Tiwary told ANI following the match on Sunday.

However, skipper Manoj Tiwary (68) and Anustup Majumdar (61) scored valiant fifties. The home side gave a 12-run target to the visitors, which was chased down.
