Half way through the stage, Mohun Bagan looked in a commanding position but from there on, Gitmoy Basu tactically handled the chase and struck a beautiful 44 off 25 balls featuring 3 towering sixes. It was on the back of this immensely well crafted innings that Town Club made it look like an easy chase. Mohun Bagan performed fantastic in the game against East Bengal Club but against Town Club, they looked short of any plan to be executed.
