Shreevats Goswami grabs magnificent catch: The wicket-keeper batsman from Bengal contributed in as many as four dismissals last night.
During an Elite Group B match of the ongoing season of the Syed Mushtaq Ali Trophy between Bengal and Hyderabad in Kolkata, Bengal wicket-keeper Shreevats Goswami put on display a commendable fielding effort to dismiss Hyderabad all-rounder Ravi Teja.
It all happened on the first delivery of the 16th over when Ravi Teja aimed at punching an Akash Deep delivery through the covers without any footwork.
In the process, the left-handed batsman ended up edging the ball towards the left of Goswami who dived magnificently to complete the dismissal. In which was that kind of a day for the 31-year old player, he didn’t seem to drop anything, playing vital role in as many as four dismissals at the Eden Gardens.
Apart from Ravi Teja (1), Goswami also grabbed catches to dismiss the likes of Tilak Varma (50), Tanay Thyagarajan (8) and Himalay Agarwal (27).
Not just restricting his contributions to the fielding department, Goswami scored a 13th T20 half-century to seal a 158-run chase in the penultimate over. Opening the batting with Vivek Singh (26), the left-handed batsman top-scored with his 69* (48) which comprised of 11 fours.
After Bengal captain Anustup Majumdar won the toss and chose to field, his team bundled out the opposition for 157 in 20 overs. With bowling figures of 4-0-24-2, pacer Ishan Porel was the pick of their bowlers. Apart from Porel, Akash Deep also picked four wickets in his four overs for 34 runs.
Having won all their three matches so far, Bengal are the current table-toppers in Elite Group B. Hyderabad, on the other hand, are at the fifth position with a solitary victory in their three matches.
