Fantasy Cricket Match Predictions Bengal T20: Town Club v Kalighat Match 22
The 22nd match of the Bengal T20 Challenge 2020 will be played between Town Club and Kalighat Club in Kolkata.
The table toppers Town Club lost their last game against Calcutta Customs Club in a low scoring contest. Batting first, Town Club could not repeat their flamboyant self and were restricted to only 110 runs for the loss of 6 wickets in their 20 overs. Top batsmen for Town Club were Kazi Junaid Saifi and Sudip Kumar Gharami.
They scored 40 and 47 runs respectively, but neither of these innings were packed with a strong strike rate. A slow start accompanied with the failure to rotate strike in the death overs were responsible for the under par score Town Club made.
During the chase, Town Club bowlers Ananta Saha and Aritra Chatterjee bowled good line and lengths not giving enough room to the batsmen to take charge. However, a rare leak of runs from MD Kaif provided a much needed opportunity for Calcutta Customs to break shackles and score at a rapid rate. In the end, the target of 111 runs was easily chased down by Calcutta Customs and Town Club lost the game by a margin of 6 wickets.
Cricket can be an unforgiving game and because of not being on the money, table toppers Town Club had to collect a defeat in their last game. They need to regroup and come out afresh in their next encounter against Kalighat Club.
Kalighat Club on the other hand have lost momentum in the last few games after few terrific outings at the start of the season. However, they were on the unlucky side in the last game as they lost by just 2 wickets against Tapan Memorial Club in the last over. Batting first, they folded out for a paltry 108 on the board in 20 overs.
Of the batsmen, only Toufik Uddin Mondal looked threatening against the opposition scoring a quick 20 in 9 balls. Sudip Chatterjee batted well for his 26 runs but his innings never changed any gears that added to the slower scoring rate.
What seemed like an easy chase for Tapan Memorial Club became complicated in the middle overs as Aamir Gani picked up 4 important wickets in his spell of 4 overs giving away just 19 runs. Pradipta Pramanaik also bowled beautifully for his economic spell of 14 runs in his 3 overs.
It was strange to see the captain not giving another over to Pradipta Pramanaik to close the game in Kalighat’s favour. It was a fantastic knock from P Barman of Tapan Memorial Club took the game away from Kalighat Club in the end.
Kalighat Club must be proud of their performance after defending one of the lowest scores in the tournament and they can easily spell a surprise against Town Club in their next game.

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
