Fantasy Cricket Match Predictions Bengal T20 Challenge:Tapan Memorial Club v Kalighat Club – Match 14
The 14th match of the Bengal T20 Challenge 2020 will be played between Tapan Memorial Club and Kalighat Club.
Kalighat Club is sitting very nicely in the top two of the points table after beating East Bengal Club by 2 wickets in their last game. This was second consecutive victory for Kalighat Club while chasing a target. Batting first, East Bengal Club started off very well on the back of a spectacular opening partnership between Shreevats Goswami and B Amit. They added 67 runs between them before Shreevats Goswami was run out in a dramatic manner. After that, B Amit and Arnab Nandi held the innings together until the 19th over and ensured that their team crossed the 135 run mark on a tricky surface. In the end, they scored 138 runs in 20 overs for the loss of 5 wickets.
Jayojit Basu and Abhishek Bose opened the innings for Kalighat Club and cautiously kept manoeuvring the ball to all parts of the ground. Howerver, the game changer of the match was the partnership between Sudip Chatterjee and Shubham Chatterjee. Both the batsmen continued their form from the last game and dominated the bowlers all throughout their innings. Shubham Chatterjee scored 32 runs while Sudip Chatterjee scored 60 runs at a staggering strike rate of 157. Eventually, Kalighat Club easily chased the target set by the East Bengal Club.
Kalighat Club are in terrific form and will be the team to beat going forward in the tournament.
Tapan Memorial Club have lost their last game to Town Club by 28 runs and are not in their red hot form currently. They are among the top 3 on the points table but their last game has surely taken the momentum away. In their recent outing against Town Club, they conceded 146 runs in 20 overs upon being asked to field first. Of the bowlers, only P Barman looked disciplined along with Sandipan Das Sr. who bowled at a very good economy of 6 each. The rest of the bowlers went for plenty including Nikantha Das who gave away 40 runs in his 4 over spell.
Chasing the target, Tapan Memorial Club were always lagging behind in terms of run rate required and it looked like the batsmen were not calculating the manner in which they need to approach the total of 146. Consistent performers like Sandipan Das Sr. and Shahbaz Ahmed could not perform like before and scored 15 and 4 respectively. The only batsmen who threatened to take the match away from Town Club was Tarun Godara. He made a contribution of 46 runs in just 27 balls. This effort was not enough as Tapan Memorial Club fell short by 28 runs.
Tapan Memorial Club are going into their next game against Kalighat Club who are in great form recently and they need to bring out their A Game in order to pose a competition to their opponent.
Let's have have a look at the two squads:
Kalighat Club: Subham Sarkar, Subham Chatterjee, Jayojit Basu, Sudip Chatterjee, Pradipta Pramanik, Mithilesh Das, Aamir Gani, Amit Kulia, Pritam Chakraborty, Amit Banerjee, Satyaki Dutta, Abhishek Bose, Sourav Mondal, Shubhrajit Das, Prinan Dutta
