Devibas Events and Media Pvt Ltd is organising the Marwadi Super 8’s cricket tournament at the Tribhuvan University Stadium from Wednesday.
The league-cum-knock out tournament will feature eight teams who are divided into two pools with the top two sides making it to the semi-finals. Sajangoth Champs, Riders, Hamrokitchen.com and I.Store Warriors are pitted in Group ‘A’. Group ‘B’ consists of Tip Top, Fighters, KBH Nepal and Kochar Rangers.
The Super 8’s cricket has its own rules and regulations with each side consisting of eight players competing in a seven-over contest. Each hit over the fence will fetch eight runs and each extra will give away two runs. Super 8’s is the second tournament from Devibas having previously organised Open Super 8’s Twenty20 a month earlier.
The tournament will only see the participation of players from the Marwadi community. Tip Top are sponsoring the three-day tournament. Tip Top representative Bikash Sharma said it came as their responsibility to contribute in producing cricketers from the Marwadi community.
“We had previously provided financial assistance in four different editions of the Marwadi Premier League and its better if we keep continuing it. A lot of talents have come up to hit the national cricket scene and this is how our contribution has worked,” said Sharma.
Wednesday and Thursday will see the completion of league stage matches with each day hosting six matches. The semi-finals and final will be held on Saturday. Khukuri Ent are the associates of the tournament.
