Shakil Jr. and Kamran sealed it for Bengal Tigers against Finn-Asia

Tigers won against Finn-Asia on their 3rd league match played at Turku yesterday. Winning the toss, Hosts sent Bengal Tigers to bat first. From the very first ball , Finn-Asia pressured the visitors and at one stage, Tigers were 27/3. A very fine knock from Shakil Jr and well needed partnership with Monju helped the Tigers to recover the early dents and make a fighting score of 153 before they were bowled out. Shakil made 51 before he was caught out.

Though Finn-Asia lost their first wicket early from a stunning catch of Monju at square leg, 2nd wicket partnership of the hosts were frastrating the Tigers. Some great bowling from the striker bowler Kamran brought the balance for the Tigers. Kamran took 4 wickets while Rubel pocketed 3 for the Tigers before Finn-Asia were packed at 117. The victory was indeed a sweet one as the Tigers now are back in to the track in the division. Tigers like to thank Bappi bhai, Anis bhai and Tuli bhabi for all the asists. Next match for Bengal tigers in SM 40 league is against Tampere at their home ground on 6th July.

Our poor batting performance is continuing for second time in the league. Despite our poor showing in batting, specially from the top orders (I've to blame myself as well :), I think our fielding and bowing were superve.

Finn-Asia's 2nd wkt pertnership gave us a big scare, luckily when we broke through their 2nd pernarship, rest were matter of time only :).

Although our batting collasp, their are few things to smile about. Shakil is back in runs and Moju vai played superve to help shakil building our innings. In the later part of the innings U/Riz and Ruben had a pretty good and solid partnership. Unlucky ruben left out without any partner.

Hopefully our batting will improve next game and can't wait for the next game to play. Long waiting though.....
