Kalighat Club registered their first victory in the ongoing Bengal T20 Challenge by beating Mohun Bagan by six wickets, thanks to Sudip Chatterjee's patient unbeaten half-century.

On Wednesday evening, Kalighat put Bagan to bat after winning the toss and came out with a disciplined bowling effort to restrict them to 137/4 at the Eden Gardens. In reply, Kalighat rode on Sudip's patient 40-ball 51 to successfully chase down the target in what turned out to be an exciting finish.

"We needed 138 runs to win and our plan was to keep wickets in hand and take it deep. I am happy that we successfully executed our plan. We lost a close game yesterday so winning this match was very important for us," said Sudeep after the match.

While chasing, Jayojit Basu (20) and Abhishek Bose (19) gave Kalight a decent start but after the duo fell, it was Sudip and skipper Subham Chatterjee (31) who kept the team in the hunt.

Sudip kept his cool and smashed five boundaries en route to his maiden half-century of the tournament while Prince Yadav was the highest wicket-taker for Bagan with 2 for 23.

"We didn't have good start in both departments. I scored runs but our team couldn't win, that's sad for me. There are more matches left and our aim will be to win most of them," said Bagan skipper Anustup.
