The complete Bengal T20 Challenge 2020 squad and team list for this year’s competition, the inaugural edition of the tournament.
The 2020 edition of the Bengal T20 Challenge is scheduled to be held at Kolkata’s Eden Gardens from 24 November in a bio-bubble eco-system and will feature six teams: East Bengal, Mohun Bagan, Town Club, Kalighat, Tapan Memorial and Calcutta Customs.
With each team playing each other twice, there will be a total of 33 games.
“All the players, coaches and match officials will continue to remain in the bio bubble during the entire course of the tournament,” CAB President Avishek Dalmiya was quoted as saying.
“The thought process behind this tournament is to nurture the talents of the state of West Bengal and also enable this competition to act as a talented feeder to the various age groups representing the association.”
Each team comprises 15 players, with the clubs retaining 42 players and signing 8 more at a draft conducted at a Kolkata hotel on Tuesday.
