Dhangadhi, February 23, 2019, 12:45 PM IST
So, the Dhanagadhi Premier League 2019 final will be played on Saturday evening between CYC Attariya and Kathmandu Goldens at the proposed Fapla Cricket Ground, Dhangadhi. The clash is set to begin at 12:45 PM IST tomorrow.
Mahendranagar United reached the finals with walkover without a ball being bowled after Kathmandu Goldens boycotted the second qualifier. Goldens’ overseas player Ankit Dabbas got banned on Thursday due to his illegal bowling action after which the team manager Sanjay Shrestha said they decided not to play the second qualifier.
A Dabas was Golden’s main player and was chosen player of the match in three matches. He bagged six wickets and also scored 153 runs.
Both CYC Attariya and Mahendranagar United would be eyeing their maiden title win when both the teams will feature for the final battle. CYC Attariya finished 4th while Mahendranagar United finished 3rd in last edition and would be glad to make it to the finals this time.
CYC Attariya secured the final spot after beating Kathmandu Golden by 41 runs in the Qualifier 1 while Mahendranagar United clinched 1 run win over Rupandehi Challengers in a thrilling Eliminator that took place on Thursday. With both the teams hoping to capitalize the momentum, a cracker of a game is expected to take place tomorrow.
The Fapla Cricket Ground in Dhangadhi, Nepal is hosting the tournament for the first time. The wicket is expected to be flat and neutral with little assistance to both batsmen and pacers. The matches played so far have been low scoring. So, expect another low scoring total.
