Fantasy Cricket Match Predictions Bengal T20: Calcutta Customs Club vs Town Club Match 8
The 7th match of the Bengal T20 Challenge 2020 will be played between Calcutta Customs Club and Town Club at the Eden Gardens, Kolkata.
Calcutta Customs have made a superb comeback after their first game defeat. The game against Mohun Bagan AC was a very close one and Calcutta definitely showed promising signs for the next fixture. They did not disappoint at all and showed what they are really capable of as a team.
Batting first in their second game, Calcutta Customs Club’s top order made important contributions. Agniv Pan and Abhishek Das led from the front and paved way for the team to get to a par score on a very difficult pitch. The lower order could not make a heavy impact and Calcutta Customs scored 121 for 8 in their 20 overs. Sandipan Das Sr. from Tapan Memorial Club performed well again with the ball in his hand and took 3 important wickets.
It was all over to the bowlers now to make good use of the surface and restrict Tapan Memorial Club within 121. Tapan Memorial Club could never get off to the flyer, thanks to the tight lines bowled by Abhilash Semiwal and Karan Lal. The only threat was posed by Shahbaz Ahmed who scored 30 runs off 25 deliveries along with Kaif Ahmed who made 22 runs. Once they got out, the match was all but over for Tapan Memorial Club and Calcutta Customs won it in the end by a margin of 10 runs and if you were sports betting on that match on Calcutta, you would have been happy.
This victory shall boost up the confidence of the players who underperformed in the first game and prepare them to unleash in their next outing against Town Club.
On the other hand, Town Club are riding high on confidence after their second consecutive win against the East Bengal Club. They were put in to bat after losing the toss and scored at a run a ball until the 10th over. With the hitting prowess in their lower order, the middle order simply caressed the ball to all parts setting up an ideal platform for the lower order to fire. The other day it was MD Kaif who played a blitzkrieg innings, this time it was Gitmoy Basu who scored 45 runs off just 19 deliveries at a strike rate of 236. Town Club ended their innings with 142 on the board.
The start for East Bengal Club in the chase was horrible as Shreevats Goswami failed once again getting out on a duck after facing 9 deliveries. Arnab Nandi was the lone warrior with his 55 not out in 38 balls. No significant support from the other end meant East Bengal lost the game by 14 runs. MD Kaif was the star among the bowlers picking up 3 wickets.
