Fantasy Cricket Match Predictions: Bengal T20 Challenge - Town Club and East Bengal Club – Match 6
The 6th match of the Bengal T20 Challenge 2020 will be played between Town Club and East Bengal Club at the Eden Gardens, Kolkata.
Town Club started their campaign with a stunning win over Kalighat Club. After losing the toss, they were asked to field first and started off well with the new ball. However, they leaked a bit too many runs in the middle overs, courtesy to the batting of Shubham Chatterjee who took the Town Club bowlers to cleaners all over the park. Kalighat Club finished at 148 for 7 in 20 overs and it was now all over to the big hitters of Town Club to finish the job.
The chase began poorly for Town Club as they were reeling at 66 for 7 in the 14th over. However, MD Kaif came to his team’s rescue and steered the wrecked ship of Town Club to the shore with two balls to spare.
This innings has sent out a clear message to the other competiting teams in the tournament to not take things lightly with the Town Club. They are very much capable of springing surprise performances and will be going into their second game with great confidence. It’s players are in the form of their life and are expected to repeat their heroics from the first game against East Bengal Club.
East Bengal Club on the other hand lost their first game to Tapan Memorial Club by 6 wickets. The absence of its key players in Abhimanyu Easwaran and Abhishek Raman really showed in the match. Another big player Shreevats Goswami failed to impress as he made just 9 runs off 12 deliveries.
Batting first in the game, East Bengal Club were restricted to 118 for 9 in 20 overs. Shahbaz Ahmed and Ramesh Prasad bowled tight lines and did not give batsmen the required room to step up their strike rate. In reply, Tapan Memorial Club easily chased the target in the 17th over with 6 wickets remaining.
East Bengal Club must be low at confidence after their outing against Tapan Memorial Club but the possibility of them making a strong come back cannot be ruled out. They will need their experienced batsmen to step up and dominate the opposition from the word go to pose any competition to the in-form Town Club in their second fixture of the tournament.
Let's have have a look at the two squads:
East Bengal Club: Abhimanyu Easwaran, Shreevats Goswami, Arnab Nandi, Boddupalli Amit, Abhishek Raman, Dipanjan Mukherjee, Mukesh Kumar, Sayan Shekhar Mandal, Kanishk Seth, Akash Pandey, Arindam Ghosh, Anubhav Ahuja, Raju Harlder, Sujit Kumar Yadav, Durgesh Kumar Dubey
Town Club: MD. Kaif, Aritra Chatterjee, Sudip Gharami, Mirza Danish Alam, Ayan Bhattacharjee, Golam Mustafa, Kazi Junnaid Saifi, Arikta Das, Azaz Ansari, Gitimoy Basu, Avijit Singh, Purab Joshi, Ananta Saha, Pankaj Shaw, Naved Ahmed
