Big teams rule as TAC, NPC in semi-finals

Jan 13, 2017 | Safal Regmi |

On a day of big teams' dominance, Tribhuvan Army Club (TAC) and Nepal Police Club (NPC) registered victories to enter the semi-finals second Ruslan Twenty20 Cup cricket tournament on Friday.


NPC cruised to an eight-wicket victory over Himalayan White House College after Sunil Dhamala scored his second consecutive half century in the tournament. TAC hammered Royal PC Fighter by 10 wickets after their fast bowlers ran riot.


Man-of-the-match Avinash Karn was at the centre of TAC's drubbing of Royal PC Fighter producing miserly figures of 4-3 from four overs to bundle out the opponents for just 45 runs in 17 overs.


Opener Sagar Pun did the rest hammering 36 off 21 with seven boundaries as TAC replied with 46 for none in four overs. TAC had sent Sompal Kami as openers but he hardly sweated making three runs.


Sompal rather had a good day with the ball picking up 3-8 from four overs and Lokendra Chand took 2-9 form three. Bijay Sunar was the only Royal PC Fighter to reach double digits making 11 runs from 32 balls hitting two boundaries.


NPC restricted White House to 98-8 after getting their key man Mehboob Alam for just one run. Dhamala had struck a half century in NPC's opening day victory over Himalayan Cricket Academy. The former U-19 opener continued his form with a 42-ball 60 not out as NPC reached 99-2 in 13 overs.


Dhamala smashed four sixes and as many boundaries to make a 42-ball 60 not out and shared 58 runs for the second wicket with Aarif Sheikh who scored 27 off 21 with five boundaries.


Earlier, skipper Hashim Ansari top scored for White House with a 42-ball 33 including three boundaries. Pranit Thapa Magar made 23 off 28 with two fours and a six.


Amar Singh Routela (18) was the remaining batsman to make runs in double figures. Lalit Singh Bhandari and Dipendra Airee took two wickets each for NPC.
