Shrachi Rarh Tigers displayed a dominant all-round performance to outclass Harbour Diamonds by 23 runs in the Bengal Pro T20 League 2024 at the Eden Gardens on Thursday. 

The Rarh Tigers won the toss and decided to bat first as captain Shahbaz wanted to put runs on the board on a wicket where chasing has been tough in the last few days. However, that decision fired back as they lost four wickets within 16 runs and they looked in trouble. 

But experienced Arindam Ghosh and Shahbaz Ahmed bailed them out. Shahbaz got dismissed after scoring a quick-fire 30 from 16 balls while Arindam remained unbeaten on 54 from 46 balls to guide them to 141/7 in the first inning. Pradipta Pramanik slogged hard to score 26 from 13 balls in the lower order.

Mohammed Kaif and Aritra Chatterjee were the pick of the bowlers with three and two wickets against their names respectively. 

In the second inning, Harbour Diamonds lost their opener Abhijeet Bhagat in the second over and Manoj Tiwary walked out to bat at number three. However, the veteran batter could not get himself going for long as he was dismissed for 17 off 20 balls.

Prayas Ray Burman was given a controversial LBW by the fourth umpire and the Diamond's middle order started feeling the pressure of the asking rate. Sayan Shekhar Mondal (51) tried his best to keep up with the rate and played some great shots to reach his fifty but soon lost his wicket after the landmark.

Eventually, the Diamonds fell 23 runs short of the target as Suman Das, Arnab Nandi and Shahbaz Ahmed returned with two wickets each for Rarh Tigers.
