SS Events is organising the third Century Bank Corporate Super Sixes from October 19, the organisers announced on Thursday.

A total of 24 teams—six more than the previous edition—are competing in the tournament with each of the eight groups consisting of three teams. The top two teams will qualify for the pre-quarterfinals. The five-day tournament is a six-a-side tournament played with white ball and colour clothing with each side playing five overs.
“More teams have shown interest in the current edition which means that the
tournament is getting bigger. SS Events has been focused
in bringing in cricketing activities and we will try to
go even further in coming days,” said Raman Shiwakoti, CEO of SS Events.
All the matches of the tournament will be played at the TU Stadium with the organisers preparing for live broadcast of semi-final and final matches. Century Bank Assistant Manager Subash Sharma said the tournament has been a good deal for his company.
“We have been closely following each and every part of the tournament and it has been giving us a good mileage. We would like to continue our sponsorship in the coming days as well and eagerly looking forward to the current edition,” said Sharma.
The winner of the tournament will get a free entry to the next edition. The winners and runners-up along with best batsman, bowler and fielder will get gift hampers. The estimated cost of the tournament is Rs 2.5 million. Civil Bank and Sipradi Trading are the winners of the first two editions.

Kathmandu’s urban sprawl and congestion is frustrating at its Saturday best and downright soul-crushing during a Monday ‘office-time’ traffic jam. You may love this chaotic city, you may hate it, or you may love-to-hate it, but one thing is for certain, any prolonged stay in the Capital gets

Emperor strikes back!

Our politicians and civil servants are beggars. They beg for petty little things. Why not think big?

The lost decades

SHREYA PAUDEL
Bhupi Sherchan is perhaps the most beloved and widely read poet in Nepali literature. His mastery over the free verse—that broke away from the archaic slokas that had once dominated Nepali poetry—and his eagerness to explore themes that were seldom written about, made his poetry both readable and relatable for the masses. Bhupi’s peerless genius is further underscored by the fact that his poems continue to remain widely popular and ever relevant to every new generation of readers; his magnum opus, Ghumne Mech Mathi Andho Manche, has seen 10 different editions since it was first published in 1968. Having recently sat through the anthology (in one frenzied sitting), I was left with two conclusions: the first that Bhupi was a visionary whose ideas were well and truly ahead of his time, and secondly that because his poems are still so hauntingly relevant in this day and age, it begs the question of what progress we have really made in these lost decades.
