Dhangadhi, February 19, 2019, at 12:45 PM IST
With the Qualifiers just a couple of games away, Nepal’s T20 domestic tournament – Dhangadhi Premier League 2019 is cruising fast towards its conclusion. The thirteen fixture scheduled to be played tomorrow at the Fapla Cricket Ground, Dhangadhi will witness the reigning champions Dhangadhi Stars locking horns with the Rupandehi Challengers.
The two champions Dhangadhi Stars are still looking for their first win of the tournament as the team is placed at the bottom of the ladder with zero wins in four encounters. The Stars have faced defeats in three outings while one of their encounter against Mahendranagar United ended in a no result due to rain playing the spoilsport.
While this is their final game of the season, Dhangadhi Stars would be desperate for a win and finish their campaign with a consolation win.
Placed third with two wins and one defeat in three outings, Rupandehi Challengers would be eyeing the top spot when they take on Dhangadhi Stars tomorrow in their last encounter. After starting the campaign with 2 runs wins over Mahendranagr United, Challengers secured 5 wickets win over Biratnagar Kings to make it two in a row. However, they faced 39 runs loss in their third encounter against CYC Attariya and are facing off Kathmandu Goldens today.
The first Qualifier will be played on Wednesday, followed with the Eliminator on Thursday and second Qualifier on Friday. The Dhangadhi Premier league 2019 final will be played on Saturday at the same ground.
The Fapla Cricket Ground in Dhangadhi, Nepal is hosting the tournament for the first time and is expected to be flat and neutral with little assistance to both batsmen and pacers.
