Feb 12, 2018 | Cricketingnepal |

Inter-District Sport Club and Makwanpur Cricket Club entered the quarter-finals of the Khukuri Challenger Twenty20 cricket tournament at the Mulpani Cricket Grounds on Monday.

Inter-District defeated Tikapur Cricket Club by six wickets to finish Group ‘D’ winners. Makwanpur lost to Rautahat Rising XI by five runs but the slim-margin defeat was enough for them to see them through as pool runners-up. Inter-District, Makwanpur and Rautahat all finished with nine points from four games with only run rate separating them.

Inter-District bundled out Tikapur for 119 in 16.1 overs before a collective batting effort lifted them to 122-4 in 18.5 overs. Manjil Gurung and Sher Malla saw their team through with a 40-run unbroken stand for the fifth wicket. Manjil made a 35-ball 32 with three boundaries and Sher played a 15-ball cameo of 28 hitting four boundaries. Subash Singh Thakuri took two wickets for Tikapur.

Earlier, opener Rabindra Jung Shahi did the bulk of scoring for Tikapur making a 47-ball 66. He struck nine boundaries and a six. Rajan Sherchan (11) was their next best scorer. Man-of-the-match Sagar Bhandari took 4-14, while Aviraj Roy and Durgesh Kurmi had two scalps apiece for the winning side.

In the first match of the day, Makwanpur restricted Rautahat to 100-9 in 20 overs before they could only manage 95-8. Suraj Patel was the leading scorer for Makwanpur with 29 off 36 with two boundaries. Suman Sunar was their next best making 22 off 20 with a six and a four.

Man-of-the-match Shankar Patel (2-6) and Sunil Mishra (2-13) did the job for Rautahat conceding just 19 runs between them in their collective eight overs. Sashi Keshari also had two scalps.

Rautahat didn’t have big contributors with opener Aashu Kandoi making 19 off 36 with three boundaries. Ravi Sah was unbeaten on 18 off 22 hitting a boundary. Ashim Shrestha, Hari Chaulagain, Ravi Thapa and Robin Gurung took two wickets each for Makwanpur.
