Tigers clinched 2 runs victory over Helsinki Cricket club in the friendly T20
Ruben's brilliant 53 helped Bengal Tigers to win the T20 friendly match against Helsinki CC played at Kaisaniemi yesterday. Batting first tigers scored 167 in 20 overs. Highlights of the innings was wicket keeper Ruben's fluent 53 runs. To chase 167 Helsinki made fairly good opening partnership but wickets were falling as they were getting closer to the target. In the last over, 8 runs were required to win with no wicket to spare. Though Helsinki managed to get 4 from the first ball, striker batsman were run out attempting for 2 runs on the next ball. This friendly match win will bring some energy for the tigers before the next league match against Finn-Asia.
