Dec 28, 2017 | Cricketingnepal |

Lalitpur Patriots have given Bhairahawa Gladiators a target of 133 runs to win the second Qualifier of the Everest Premier League (EPL) on Thursday.

Electing to field first at the TU Stadium, Shankar Rana and Jaykishan Kolsawala gave Patriots a big partnership before reaching 132-5 in 20 overs.

Rana and Kolsawala shared 51 runs for the first wicket in 9.1 overs but the middle order once again failed to cash in on the start. It was fourth consecutive half century partnership for the new opening pair of Patriots. 

Kolsawala top scored with a 37-ball 42 hitting five fours and two sixes. Sunny Patel was their next best scorer making 24 off 18 with two boundaries and a six, while skipper Gyanendra Malla made 20 off24. 

Dipesh Bhandari provided a late lift with an eight-ball 18 before holing out a catch in the last ball. Bhandari produced 20 runs in the last over bowled by Hari Shankar Sah.

Puneet Mehra took 2-28 from four overs, while Aarif Sheikh also took a wicket, the prized scalp of Patriots skipper Gyanendra.
