Parkophene Cricketers batting first at Cross Maidan were all out for 241 runs with their opener Sandeep Kunchikor top scoring the innings with a gritty 60 off 73 balls. The bowlers did a good job with Khizar taking 4wkts.

Chasing 242, the onus was on Sponsor XI’s top order to fire and Jay Bista opening the innings played a perfect knock smashing a brilliant 110* off 92 balls laced with 11 fours and 2 sixes. Jay’s innings was a perfect mixture of composure as well as aggression as he did not play any reckless shots while at the same time dealt with the loose deliveries keeping the scorecard ticking. Siddarth Akre who came at no.5 gave the finishing touch with a 70 ball 81 (4 fours, 5 sixes) while also stitching a 134 run stand with Jay.

Sponsors XI won the match by 5 wkts and more than half the quota of overs to spare.
