Right then, after 17 days of entertaining cricket among the teams in Bengal, we are here with FINAL of Bengal T20 Challenge played between Mohun Bagan AC and Tapan Memorial Club. The journey of both teams in the tournament is contrasting. While Tapan Memorial Club picked up pace in the middle to latter half of the tournament, Mohun Bagan AC lost its momentum in the mid stages but performed its best when it mattered the most in important games.
Both teams have defeated the opposition in semi-final matches to proceed to the final match.
In the first Semi-Final played between Tapan Memorial Club and Kalighat Club, Tapan Memorial lost the toss and we asked to have a bat first. Vikash Singh continued his form in the tournament and made a very important contribution of 34 runs in just 22 deliveries. Kaif Ahmed and Shahbaz Ahmed provided a great advantage to Tapan Memorial Club in the mid phase of the innings scoring 46 and 27 runs respectively. They put on a total of 148 for 8 in 20 overs.
With the bowling line up Tapan Memorial Club has, they would have fancied their chances after the first half against Kalighat Club. Defending the total, Shahbaz Ahmed provided an early breakthrough for his team by getting Jayojit Basu out. Post the dismissal, Kalighat Club moved very well until the 10th over when Sudip Chatterjee and Pritam Dutta struck a partnership of 65 runs. Vikash Singh did the trick for Tapan Memorial as he picked up a big wicket of Sudip Chatterjee. He bowled a great spell of 4 overs giving away only 15 runs and picked up 4 wickets. Soon after, a batting collapse happened and Kalighat Club fell short by 25 runs.
In the second Semi-Final played between Mohun Bagan AC and Town Club; Town Club won the toss and decided to bat first. They got off to a terrible start by losing 3 of their top order batsmen for 10 runs. Writtick Chatterjee ripped through the opening line up and picked up 2 early wickets to slow the scoring rate down. He was well supported by Raj Kumar Pal who made a good use of the new ball. In the middle overs, Gitmoy Basu and Pankaj Shaw tried to resurrect the innings by putting on a 45 run partnership for the 4th wicket but as soon as Shaw was dismissed, the innings got nowhere. In the end Town Club scored an under par 124 in their 20 overs.
