CAB announces a cash reward of Rs 10 lakhs for Bengal

Kolkata: CAB announced a cash reward of Rs 10 lakhs for the triumphant Bengal side who won the National Twenty20 for Syed Mushtaq Ali Twenty20 Trophy beating Madhya Pradesh in Hyderabad on Wednesday.

"I am very happy with the team`s performance even though we did not have a good start to the season. Since the team consists of so many talented cricketers, it was only a matter of time for the team to reach the peak," CAB chief Jagmohan Dalmiya said, announcing the cash award.

The triumph was a perfect toast to a forgettable season that saw the team missing out on the Ranji knock-out while the under-19 colts suffered relegation.

Bengal beat Tamil Nadu in the semi-finals to avenge their last season`s loss in the final of the same tournament while it turned out to be humdinger against Madhya Pradesh in the final as the WV Raman`s boys won a by one run.
