Kolkata: An all round show from Calcutta Customs Club saw them defeat Town Club by eight wickets in Bengal T20 Challenger today at Eden Gardens.
Electing to bat first, Town Club were bundled for a paltry 104 runs as Customs bowlers Shreyan Chakroborty (3-13) and Abhilash Semiwal (3-19) picked up 3 wickets apiece and while chasing Suvankar Bal smashed a patient half-century century as they galloped home 108/2.
Suvankar scored 57 off as many deliveries by smashing 4 boundaries and 1 six to win the match comfortably with 11 balls left to play.
An elated Suvankar said: “We really bowled well. Our target was to keep them within 120 and while chasing we mainly depended on singles and doubles, not many big hits. I am happy that we executed our plan well.”
