Fantasy Cricket Match Predictions: Bengal T20 Challenge - Mohun Bagan AC vs Calcutta Customs Club - Match 1
The 1st Match of the Bengal T20 Challenge 2020 will be played between Mohun Bagan AC and Calcutta Customs Club at the iconic Eden Gardens stadium, Kolkata.
Mohun Bagan AC was founded in 1889 and the first cricket team of the club was reported to compete in the year 1911. The club has a rich history and 111 major state level trophies to their belt. They are an unstoppable force in the intra- state competitions and are expected to perform to their skills in the Bengal T20 Challenge.
Mohun Bagan AC features a highly skilled lineup including the likes of Manoj Tiwary and star wicketkeeper batsman Debabrata Das. Apart from them, Rajkumar Pal and Shivam Sharma both strike the ball hard and carry a good strike rate in the recently concluded domestic competitions. They are expected to deliver some good knocks for their team.
In the bowling department, Mohun Bagan AC seem to have all sides covered. For them, Rajkumar Pal has performed magnificently in the recent past. Writtick Chatterjee is another good bowler in the ranks of Mohun Bagan and he is expected to turn the tide in favour of his team with his economical bowling. Mohun Bagan AC surely will miss the likes of Mohammad Shami though, who he is out for national service in Australia.
Overall, Mohun Bagan AC are a very strong unit on paper and are capable of beating any team in the tournament at will. But the high expectations will test the players in their first game against Calcutta customs in the highly awaited Bengal T20 Challenge.
On the other hand, Calcutta Customs look a little weaker on paper but feature promising talent in their team. Dip Chatterjee and Suvankar Bal will be vested with the responsibility to strengthen the batting of Calcutta Customs while the responsibility for the bowling department will lay with Bappi Manna who has performed invariably well for his team in the past.
We can expect a power packed contest between the two sides in the debut game of the Bengal T20 Challenge.
