- JANAK NEPAL, Nepalgunj

Jan 29, 2016-

A five-wicket haul from Bijay Gautam saw Baluwatar Cricket Club cruise into the semi-finals of the Kohalpur City Twenty20 cricket tournament with an eight-wicket win over Maharjan Maxo Sports Club in KOhalpur on Thursday.

Electing to bat first, Maharjan Maxo caved in for a lowly 46 runs ni 13.1 overs thanks to Gautam’s fierly spell. Pinku Gupta’s 12 runs was the top score in a hapless Maxo batting display as none of their batsmen were able to reach a double digit. In fact, their total was boosted by 14 sundries conceded by Baluwatar.

Gautam finished with figures of 5-13 from four overs, while Indar Kamal Manandhar claimed three wickets in seven balls he delivered.

Baluwatar lost openers cheaply to be 10-2 by the second over but Subash Khakurel and Rabin Joshi put on an unbroken 37-run third wicket stand to help overcome the meagre total. 

Khakurel scored run-a-ball 23 and Joshi made seven.Udesh Sahani and Bikram KC bagged one wicket each for Maxo.

Baluwatar will take on Royal Sports Club, while Kohalpur Youth Club will meet Taratal Cricket Club in semi-finals on Friday.
