Electing to field first, Attariya – a nine-wicket winners over Rupandehi Challengers a day earlier – made 150-8 in 20 overs. The victory looked out of Chauraha’s gasp at 111-7 but Sompal turned the game around in the 18th over as the defending champions reached 151-7 in 19.2 overs.

Chauraha had just lost their UAE skipper Rohan Mustafa and needed 38 runs from last three overs. Kamal Singh Airee came into bowl the 18th over, fresh from his match winning figures of 4-15 against Challengers on Sunday, but what unfolded in the six balls pumped up everyone.

After a single and four byes in the first two balls, Sompal smashed Kamal for two consecutive sixes and a boundary as Chauraha required 16 runs from last 12 deliveries. Sompal sealed the victory in the Vipin Chandra’s penultimate over that fetched Chauraha 14 runs, Sompal contributed with a six and four in that over.

Yogendra Singh Karki (six not out) hit the winning runs. Man-of-the-match Sompal made 39 from 15 balls with three sixes and three boundaries and shared 40 runs from 16 balls for the eighth wicket with Yogendra . Shubhankar Urao and Dipendra Singh Airee took two wickets each for Attariya.
