LIVE - Town Club and Mohun Bagan AC Match 32

Town Club finished at the second position on points table and hence they will face the 3rd ranked team Mohun Bagan AC in order to seal the final spot of the tournament.

Except for a few hiccups, Town Club have mostly dominated the tournament with different players surprising with their batting cameos in different matches. It shows the batting depth that they possess as a unit.

In the last game against East Bengal Club, Town Club batted first and scored 134 runs for the loss of 8 wickets in their 20 overs. Purab Joshi and Pankaj Shaw were good with the bat as they scored 32 and 26 runs respectively. In the death overs, MD Kaif and Ayan Bahattacharya struck some meaty blows with the bat and took Town Club to a score of 134 runs.

You would usually back East Bengal Club to chase this total but their campaign has been full of surprisingly poor performances and hence, they were the underdogs even before the chase started. MD Kaif started off very well with the new ball and claimed wickets of the opening pair of Abhimanyu Easwaran and Shreevats Goswami. After their top batsmen were dismissed, Abhishek Raman and Ranjot Singh Khaira also followed the suit after scoring 10 runs and 6 runs respectively. Arnab Nandi offered resistance in the middle overs with his hard working 40 runs off 27 balls but it was not enough as East Bengal lost the game in the end by just 3 runs.

The last league game victory shall boost Town Club with a lot of confidence going into their semi-final against Mohun Bagan AC.

On the other hand, Mohun Bagan AC started off very well in the tournament but the absence of Manoj Tiwary in the latter half and inconsistent performances by their marquee players meant Mohun Bagan’s chances to make it to semi final were looking bleak. However, they made a superb comeback by winning most of their last games to enter the playoff stage.

 In their most recent league game against East Bengal Club, they were asked to bat first after losing an important toss. The forever consistent Vivek Singh and his opening partner Ankur Pal gave Mohun Bagan a decent start as they accumulated 67 runs before the first wicket fell. Vivek Singh made 58 runs for his team in 35 balls. After he was dismissed, Anustup Majumdar took the responsibility of carrying his bat until the end and contributed 44 important runs. Mohun Bagan AC managed 152 runs for 7 wickets in their 20 overs.

The target of 153 was going to be tricky for East Bengal Club on a tough surface for the batsmen. Shreevats Goswami and Abhimanyu Easwaran got their team off to a flyer scoring quick 46 before the first wicket fell. Abhimanyu held one end very strong and scored a fluent 55 runs in 41 deliveries but at the other end, wickets kept tumbling and with that the required rate kept moving upwards. East Bengal Club lost all their hopes of chasing the total when they lost their main man Abhimanyu Easwaran. Thereafter, Mohun Bagan AC won the game comfortably by 36 runs. Anurag Tiwary was the pick of the bowlers taking 4 wickets in his spell of 4 overs.

 

We can expect a high quality thriller in the second semi-final of the tournament as both teams are looking in red hot form.
