After electing to field, Tollygunge restricted Mohun Bagan to 183 for seven in 59 overs before bad light forced an early closure.
If the match starts at 10 am Friday, Mohun Bagan will get a chance to bat the remaining overs. If the match doesn’t start before 10.40, Mohun Bagan will not bat again and Tollygunge will chase a reasonably comfortable target in a maximum of 59 overs.
