Bengal Tigers wiped off Tampere cc by a 6 wickets win on the last match of 40 overs Finnish Cricket league. The last match was at the home ground for Tigers, in Espoo. Some local support and spirited Bengal Boys made the last match a very successful completion for the Tigers of their 3 months campaign. Batting first, Tampere started a flowing innings before the openers were departed in short interval. Controled bowlings could not let the visitor make more than 127 as they were bowled out in 32.2 overs. Jewel picked 3 wickets for Tigers. Chasing the target for a must needed win , Bengal had a sorry start. Loosing both the openers and the fall of fourth wicket on the half way of the match, was certainly shaking the Tigers bench.

Both Titu (44*) and Ruben (37*) batted till the end with responsibility and brought the well deserved win against Tampere.
