Fantasy Cricket Match Predictions Bengal T20: Mohun Bagan A.C vs Tapan Memorial Club Match 7
The 7th match of the Bengal T20 Challenge 2020 will be played between Tapan Memorial Club and Mohun Bagan AC at Eden Gardens, Kolkata.
Tapan Memorial showed very good signs early on in the tournament with an all round performance against East Bengal Club. However, they underperformed in the second game while chasing just 121 runs.
Fielding first, the bowlers of Tapan Memorial Club mixed it up well and delivered with utmost accuracy to keep the opposition under the 125 mark. The batsmen needed to simply work in singles and doubles and keep the strike rotating but instead they all went for extravagant shots and perished without making an impact. The only consistent batsman for Tapan Memorial Club was Shahbaz Ahmed who almost single handedly won the game for them.
For the next game against Mohun Bagan AC, Tapan Memorial need to step up their performance as they are facing a strong side.
Mohun Bagan too were unlucky in their last fixture against Kalighat Club and lost the game by 6 wickets. Mohun Bagan were made to bat first on a tricky surface. Their openers again failed to give their team an acceptable start in the powerplay overs. Unlike the first game, Manoj Tiwary could not repeat the heroics to take his team to a respectful total. However, an immensely talented Anustup Majumdar held the innings together and scored 73 runs off 54 balls to take his team to a total of 137 runs in the allotted 20 overs.
For once the total looked defendable but Sudip Chatterjee and Shubham Chatterjee shared a partnership of 56 runs for the 3rd wicket taking their team closer to the target. Satyagi Dutta in the end played an important role to take Kalighat Club home with 6 wickets to spare. None of the bowlers in the Mohun Bagan AC looked threatening except Prince Yadav who took 2 wickets and gave away only 23 runs in his 4 overs. Akash Deep was decent too with his spell bowling with an economy rate of 5.5.
Mohun Bagan AC seemed to be a little complacent in their recent outing. They need to regroup as a team and address the important issues to get back to the winning ways again.
Let's have have a look at the two squads:
Mohun Bagan AC: Manoj Tiwary, Debabrata Das, Anustup Majumdar, Vivek Singh, Akash Deep, Sayan Ghosh, Rajkumar Pal, Writtick Chatterjee, Ankur Paul, Shivam Sharma, Saurabh Singh, Prince Yadav, Anuraj Tiwari, Sandipan Das (Jr), Suraj Sindhu Jaiswal
Tapan Memorial Club: Shahbaz Ahmad, Koushik Ghosh, Sandipan Das, Prayas Ray Barman, Nilkantha Das, Sumit Mohanta, Abhishek Porel, Gaurav Chauhan, Kaif Ahmad, Debopratim Halder, Roshan Singh, Ramesh Prashad, Sourav Chanda, Shakir Habib Gandhi, Tarun Godara
