Defending champions NMB Bank have filed a protest against Pappu Construction who crushed the holders in the quarter-final match of the 15th Soaltee Crowne Plaza Super Sixes at the TU Stadium on Monday.
NMB said that Pappu Construction fielded the players who did not belong to the organisation. Vinay Kumar Jha – who leads the technical committee of the tournament – said the decision over the protest will be made either on Monday night or Tuesday morning.
NMB were bundled out for just 35 runs in 4.1 overs which so far is the lowest total in the ongoing tournament before Pappu Construction reached 36-0 in just 2.4 overs. Ram Naresh Yadav smashed nine-ball 26 for the winners with six boundaries.
Rabindra Chand made 18 off 13 for NMB, while Sumit Rauniya picked up three wickets for Pappu. Earlier in the pre-quarterfinals, NMB had dispatched KIST Bank by 30 runs.
