Some nervy moments and drama towards the end of that chase then, which went the Men in Blue's way all the way through! They started well in the powerplay getting the runs, not losing any wicket and thereby setting the tone for a successful run-chase. Both the openers in Shankar and Prasanna batted well as they kept rotating the strike for the one's and two's running hard and getting the boundaries as well building the partnership nicely, which went beyond fifty runs and they put pressure on the bowlers. Bengali needed wickets at the top that they couldn't manage to get. They also needed to keep things tight that they did not, having conceded as many as twelve extras in all. 

Although, they did get in a tight over towards the end and it just looked like they were back in the game as they got the big wicket of the set Prasanna. They also had the opportunity to get Shubhdeep Deb, which was put down. Had that been taken, there could have been a different result perhaps. Those key moments that win you or lose you the game in the end. Shubhdeep playing a brilliant cameo with an unbeaten 17-ball 30 taking the Men in Blue comfortably home in the end for a fine victory. They went about the chase really well with some smart and sensible batting. They did a decent job earlier with the ball and that final over from Abhishek did prove to be of some difference after all! 

Bengali playing their second game right after this as they have a chance of redemption after having lost this game. A much-needed win for Men in Blue that has also opened up the points table nicely now making things all the more interesting. A brilliant game to start off the day. Lots more action coming your way. Stay tuned as this has been Rishab and my colleague Prakhar taking your leave!

That previous over putting just a bit of pressure on the batsmen and Mosaraf striking with his very first ball! Would have been a double strike had the second catch been taken. Big big moment in this game and you cannot afford to put chances down at this stage. Some nervy moments as we get to the end of this chase. It was a good over but he couldn't manage to finish it well with a boundary coming off the last ball! Everything happening right now. 6 off 6 needed. Advantage Men in Blue?

Bengali have allowed the batsmen to keep getting those easy singles all the way through and they need to put some pressure. The batsmen wanting to do it easily at the moment with minimal risk and it seems to be a decent approach as well. Bengali might just be happy with the tidy over though taking this game as long as possible now!
