Shaheen Group outclassed Kudla Challengers to win the NHSC Winter Cup 2021 at the Indian Club.
Expectations were high ahead of the match as both finalists had won their semi-finals by 12 runs – Shaheen Group beat Tharoll CC and Kudla Challengers thumped Kansara. But the final turned out to be a relatively one-sided encounter. Shaheen took early control of the match bowling Kudla out for 26, then knocked off the winning runs in just over four overs.
The winners took home the trophy and $300, while Kudla Challengers settled for $200.
Shaheen Group’s Natique won Man of the Match and Asif Man of the Tournament, while Akbar (Shaheen) and Sharath (Kudla) bagged Best Batsman and Best Bowler of the Tournament awards respectively.
In the Ladies’ Exhibition Match, Sea Guys’ Nishma (24*) led her team to six-wicket win against NSB.
