Defeat for Bengal Tigers against Empire
Bengal Tigers lost against Empire CC on their 5th match in SM 40 league. Batting first ,Tigers managed to collect 128 in 28 overs. Once again poor batting performance from the top and middle orders resulted the cheap total on the scoreboard. Shakil Jr top scored 47 before he was out. To defend the low total of 128 ,Tigers made a good start as Jamil picked 3 early wickets but after that Empire capitilized on sinlges as Tigers fielding was poor. Last five overs of the match brought some climax as Bengals managed to pick 4 quick wickets. But it was never enough to rescue Bengal Tigers from a 3 wickets defeat in an important match of the league.
