Mar 25, 2019 | CN Staff |

Sagar Bhandari took six wickets as Tri Chandra Campus ousted Nepal Bon College from the group stage of the Golden Gate College Cricket League Twenty20 with a huge 89-run victory on Monday.


After Dilip Nath, Puran BK and Shiva Kansakar contributed with the bat, Tri Chandra piled up 173-6 in 20 overs and pace bowler Sagar did the rest tearing apart a listless Nepal Bon batting to skittle out the opponents for 84 runs 19.4 overs.


Man-of-the-match Sagar bowled just three overs and gave away just nine runs to leave Nepal Bon clueless. After losing to Kathmandu University on the opening day, Nepal Bon are out from the tournament, while Tri Chandra and Kathmandu University will battle it out for the semi-final spot.


Jay Saud top scored for Nepal Bon with 14 runs. Dilip led the Tri Chandra attack making a 23-ball 42 with three sixes and as many boundaries. Tri Chandra were 59-3 before Puran and Shiva lifted the total with a 59-run fourth wicket partnership.


Puran was their top scorer making 45 not out from 35 deliveries with five boundaries and Shiva added 35 off 25 with four boundary and a six. Younten Lama, Palden Lama and Prasidha took a wicket each for Bon College.


In the first match of the day, NCC threw their match against Himalayan College from winning position to lose the game by 12 runs. Domestic cricket's star bowler Bhuwan Karki took 3-19 from four overs to cancel out a strong start from Himalayan to restrict the opponents for 136-9.

Ameet Shrestha, the former U-19 international, gave a perfect reply adding 71 runs for the first wicket with Sushant Timalisina in 11 overs before Himalayan removed both the openers and did the trick in the last two overs restricting NCC for 124-5 in 20 overs.

NCC needed 23 runs from the last two overs and Rupesh Singh gave away eight runs in the penultimate. Abhiraj Roy dealt with the last over giving away just two runs and picked up a wicket. Amit made 46 off 35 with seven fours and a six. Timalsina made 27 off 40 hitting one boundary.


Basanta Khatri (22) was their next best performer. Mayank took 2-22 from four overs for Himalayan with Bikash also picking up a wicket.


Dinesh Adhikari and Aschal Chaudhary (18) gave a brisk start to Himalayan adding 46 runs for the first wicket before Bhuwan applied brakes on the run flow. He removed Dinesh as Himalayan crawled to reach a total that ultimately was a winning one.


Dinesh made 27 off 23 with three fours and a six. Pankaj Das also added 22 off 20 with two sixes and a four. Aschal Chaudhary (18), Rupesh Singh (18 not out) and Suman Gahatraj (17) also chipped in important runs for Himalayan. Apart from Bhuwan, Pawan Karki also took two wickets for NCC.
