Tollygunge win amid controversy

Calcutta: In a CAB knock-out match marred by controversy, Tollygunge Agragami edged out Kumartuli by three wickets on Tuesday. Chasing 253 for victory in 45 overs, Tollygunge notched up the winning runs with one ball to spare. Initially, the scorers signalled that the match was over, and the umpires took off the bails.

But later, the two scorers cou ldn’t tally the score. While one said Tollygunge had scored the required 253, the other refuted saying they have made 252.

However, the match was awarded to Tollygunge, but the Kumartuli authorities are planning to lodge a protest with the CAB. For Tollygunge, Bengal discard Arindam Das scored 77 while Kaustav Ganguly made 49.
