Fantasy Cricket Match Predictions Bengal T20 Challenge: Calcutta Customs Club and Kalighat Club – Match 9
The 9th match of the Bengal T20 Challenge will be played between Calcutta Customs Club and Kalighat Club at the Eden Gardens, Kolkata.
Kalighat Club has made an amazing comeback with their second match win against a strong line up of Mohun Bagan AC. In both the games, their batting has been top notch, especially by the middle order. Shubham Chatterjee seems to be in a good touch and doing justice to his four number position. In both the matches, he scored 63 and 31 runs respectively at a very healthy strike rate. In the second game, Sudip Chatterjee joined hands with Shubham to take their team home against Mohun Bagan AC. The return of form for Sudip Chatterjee is an encouraging sign for the club and it will prove to be vital towards the business end of the tournament.
Kalighat Club has some answers to find out on the bowling front though. For them, Pritam Chakraborty is wicket less so far in the tournament giving away 38 runs each in both the games. The captain or coach need to talk to him to sort out the issue as he is one of their main bowlers. Pradipta Pramanik was very economical in the second game after going for too many runs in his first. One bowler that has been consistent in both the matches is Subham Sarkar. He picked up 3 wickets against Town Club in the first match and bowled economically against Mohun Bagan AC. Overall, the bowlers of Kalighat Club need to bowl according to the plans and deliver in order to stretch the winning streak in their next match against the in-form Calcutta Customs Club.
Calcutta Customs Club on the other hand have bagged yet another victory in their third game against Town Club. Fielding first, the bowlers of Calcutta Customs bundled out the opposition for an under par score of 104. The trio of Abhilash Semiwal, Arka Sarkar and Shreyan Chakraborty bowled spectacularly in the second half of the Town Club innings. Abhilash and Shreyan ended up taking 3 wickets each while Arka bagged up 2 wickets to his name.
The heroes of Town Club could not do enough to tackle the stump line bowling strategy used by the Calcutta Customs bowlers. Replying to the target of 105, the batsmen played intelligently by ignoring good deliveries and caressing the lose balls to keep the required rate in check. As predicted by us in our preview for the match, Suvankar Bal was the star of the match as he made 57 runs off 57 balls that included 1 six. The partnership between Agniv Pal and Suvabkar Bal set the perfect platform for the chase. Agniv Pal was dismissed for 16 runs by Aziz Ansari taking a superb catch off his own bowling. Suvankar Bal carried his bat throughout the innings and ensured his team’s victory over the Town Club by 8 wickets.
Calcutta Customs Club are coming into their fourth game on the back of two emphatic wins against two strong teams. The team morale is mountain high and a similar consistency is expected of them to bring out the best of their performance against Kalighat Club who have also won the last 2 games. We are surely in for a great contest between the two good performing sides in the tournament.
