Sunrise lift Inter-school National title

Sunrise Higher Secondary School of Region No 9 (Kanchanpur) claimed the title of the Inter-school Boys National Cricket Tournament on Friday.

 

In the final held at the Siddhartha Stadium, Sunrise defeated Vidhya Sadan of Region No 2 (Birgunj) by 10 runs. The title made Sunrise richer by Rs 25,000, while Vidhya Sadan took home Rs 15,000.

 

Openers Anil Kumar Thapa and Rabi Chand took the responsibility in the big match with a modest start before Sunrise were restricted to 102-8 in 20 overs. Vidhya Sadan, in reply, were squeezed out for just 92 runs with three balls to spare.

 

Aasif Sheikh, who represented Nepal in the ACC U-16 Premier, top scored for Vidhya Sadan making 23 off 33 with two boundaries. Samsad Ansari was their next best scorer with 22 from 21 in a boundaryless innings. Rasid Khan (12) was their remaining batsman to make runs in double figures.

 

Bhim Sarki picked up two wickets for Sunrise with Niraj Pokhrel, Krishna Tiwari, Naresh Bohora and Prakash Saud picking up wicket each.

 

Earlier, Anil and Rabi gave Sunrise a perfect start with a 45-run partnership for the first wicket. Anil made 17 off 22 with two boundaries, while Rabi scored 23 off 40 with four hits to the fence. Despite the modest start, Sunrise innings crumbled in no time losing four wickets for just 12 runs.

 

However, Bhim once again rescued his side combining for a 34-run fourth wicket stand for Ramesh Dutt Bhatt taking his team to what ultimately became a challenging total. Bhim – who was later adjudged the man-of-the-series, made 21 off 22 hitting two boundaries.

 

Ramesh made 14 off 14 with two fours. Samsad Ansari picked up 3-14 from four overs. Arman Ansari and Rasid Khan also picked up a wicket each.
