Bengal tigers start the season with a Comprehensive win over Empire CC

Tigers crashed Empire CC on their first match by a huge win of 7 wickets played in Espoo today. Winning the toss in the morning, Tigers invited Empire to bat first. The host were up on the visitors from the very begining and kept them under pressure by regular break through. Empire CC were bowled out for 146 in 35.1 overs. Paceman Kamran and skipper Jewel picked up 3 wickets each while Shakil (Sr) got 2 wickets.

To chase 146, Dipu and Amin made a solid start of 53 in the opening stand for the Tigers. A set back caused only a little worry for the hosts when they lost their openers in a short interval. Strong partnership between Titu and Shakil (Sr) diminshed all kinds of hopes for the Empire as some quality cricket from these two batsmen took the sail close the coast for bengal. Titu gone for 29 and Shakil (Sr) scored unbeaten 47 to secure the victory for the Tigers on their very first match in SM 40 league.

BTCC specially like to thank Bappi bhai for the great service. Also, day long support from Tuhin,Rinku, Monju bhai and others are acknowledged. After this thumping win today, Tigers are more charged up for their next match against Vaasa on 23rd of May. Match to be held in Tampere.
