The 19th match of the Bengal T20 Challenge will be played between Calcutta Customs Club and Town Club at Eden Gardens, Kolkata.
The match is scheduled to start at 7:00 PM IST and will be streamed live on Fancode.
Two sides who have been polar opposites will lock horns at the Eden Gardens on Wednesday. It will be the high-flying Town Club taking on the out of sorts Calcutta Customs Club. Town Club have played some great cricket in this competition and have secured 5 wins from 6 games.
Very understandably so, they are sitting at the top of the points table. At the very opposite end of the table is their opposition Calcutta Customs Club. They have won only 2 of their 5 games so far, and have looked unimpressive for the majority of the competition. They will need to be at the top of their game to pose a challenge against Town Club.
CAL vs TOC Weather Report for Match 19:
As Kolkata usually is in its early winter days, we can except a pleasantly cold atmosphere with the temperature being around 28 °C. Rain is not on the cards.
Though the pitch favoured the bowlers initially, we have seen the batsmen doing well in the last few games. Hence, it will be a fascinating contest between the bat and the ball.
