Fantasy Cricket Match Predictions Bengal T20 Calcutta Customs Club v Mohun Bagan AC Match 23
The 23rd match of Bengal T20 Challenge 2020 will be played between Calcutta Customs Club and Mohun Bagan AC.
Calcutta Customs Club have lost their most recent game against East Bengal Club after an emphatic win over the table toppers Town Club on Wednesday. Bowling first in the game, Calcutta Customs took their first wicket in the form of Abhimanyu Easwaran who is making a comeback into the team after recovering from Covid-19. Shreevats Goswami started out well and hit a few boundaries during powerplay but was soon dismissed to a dramatic run out. For Calcutta Customs, Shreyan Chakraborty and Saikat Bannerjee both picked up 2 wickets and bowled at a good economy rate.
Chasing this total, Calcutta Customs folded out for 77 runs registering one of the lowest totals in the tournament. Openers put on a good partnership but after they were dismissed, there was a great batting collapse. None of the other batsmen could score more than 10 runs. They lost the game by 41 runs and we will have to wait and see how this game impacts their chances in tournament.
Mohun Bagan on the other hand have been sitting at the bottom of the table. In the last few games, both their batting and bowling were ordinary.
Batting first in the previous game they played, Mohun Bagan started off nicely with an opening partnership of 68 runs. Ankur Pal made 39 runs off 30 balls while Sourav Pal managed 27 runs off 39 deliveries. After the dismissal of openers, middle order could not give any momentum to the innings. However, a late burst of runs from the bat of Prince Yadav took the team to a total of 129 for 5 wickets in 20 overs.
Defending 129 runs was not going to be easy against a team in form. Tapan Memorial Club started well with both openers making significant contribution. In the middle overs, it was the blistering knock of Shahbaz Ahmed that sealed the game for Mohun Bagan AC. He scored 51 off just 24 balls. Tapan Memorial Club easily chased the target with 3.1 overs to spare. Among the bowlers of Mohun Bagan, Vivek Singh and Anurag Tiwari were top performers taking 2 wickets each.
