THE PREDICTION

An exciting clash is in prospect between the top two sides in Group B. Tamil Nadu know that victory will see them qualify for the knockout stage as group winners, but defeat here to Bengal by a big enough margin would see their opponents overtake them at the top of the table. As a result, Bengal will be forced to play more aggressively here and this could lead to fireworks at Eden Gardens. Bengal’s confidence however, may be shaken after their loss to Assam last time out and Dinesh Karthik’s side who are currently riding the crest of a wave and have proven themselves as incredibly strong with the bat in particular should have enough all-round quality to come out on top here.
