7th December 2020

Azaz got 4 for 13 while Kaif bagged 3 leaking 21 runs to steal a close match and go top of the table with 28 points from 10 matches.
Azaz said: "When we were batting at first we understood that the ball is turning and if we can get couple of wickets early it won't be an easy target for East Bengal to chase. We have played well as a team and bowled well too."
Earlier put to bat first Town Club amassed 134/8 as Purab Joshi scored 32 off 35 balls while Kanishk Seth bagged 3 wickets and skipper Arnab Nandi picked up 2 wickets for East Bengal.
Defending a low total Town bowlers responded well to restrict EB to 131/9 in their quota of 20 overs while skipper Arnab Nandi's 27-ball 40 went in vain.
