Apr 25, 2018 | Saleena Shrestha |
Dangali Gorkhas claimed the inaugural title of the Nepalgunj Cup Twenty20 cricket tournament at the Kohalpur cricket ground on Thursday

In the final match that was earlier expected to go down to the wire, Anil Kharel's three wickets and an allround effort from Sandeep Sunar handed Gorkhas an eight-wicket crushing of Rolpa Gorillas. 

Electing to bat first, Gorillas top eight batsmen caved in before the entire team was bundled out for just 89 runs in 19.1 overs. Skipper and man-of-the-match Sandeep smashed 46 from just 23 deliveries as Gorkhas reached the target in just eight overs for the loss of two wickets. 

Sandeep struck eight boundaries and two sixes in his blistering innings, while Manoj Sunar chipped in unbeaten 24 from 19 balls with five hits to the fence.  

Earlier, Gorillas top eight batsmen failed to contribute to the team before Sher Oli and Roshan Shah provided a late lift from 33-8 with a 35-run partnership for the ninth wicket. After Sher (14) departed, Roshan built another 21-run stand with Meraj Ansari to push the team close to triple figures. Roshan hit four boundaries and a maximum in 24 balls.

Left-handed spinner Anil returned the figures of 3-16 in four overs while Sandeep also took two wickets for Gorkhas. Bishnu Katariya, Hari Chettri, Shahid Ansari and Sagar Dhakal had a scalp each for Gorkhas.
