Brotherhood CC to clash with Halcyon Days in Mkg Inter-Club tourney

Mokokchung, January 18 (MExN): The stage is set. Brotherhood Cricket Club will face Halcyon Days tomorrow in the final match of the 21st Inter-club Cricket Tournament organized by the Mokokchung District Cricket Association (MDCA). Halcyon Days today beat Wolverine Cricket Club, the defending champions by 6 wickets in their last Super Six league game to move in to the final match, a berth they have attained only once before. Wolverine after winning the toss elected to bat first but they could manage to score just 97 runs. They were left all out after their last wicket fell in the last ball of their inning’s last over via a run out. Halcyon Days scored their winning run in style with a four as they reached 101 runs for the loss of 5 wickets with 7 balls to spare. Man of the Match was awarded to Alemyanger of Halcyon Days for his 33 run knock.
Meanwhile, in another Super Six league game, last year’s runners up Brotherhood beat strong title contenders Sovran by 7 wickets to book their place in the final match tomorrow against Halcyon Days. Electing to bat first after winning the all important toss, Sovran could score only 92 runs in their allotted 20 overs at a run rate of a little than 5 runs an over. They remained at 92/5. Brotherhood in reply reached their target in 18 over losing only 3 wickets along the way. Despite losing early wickets, their middle order batsmen held their nerves as Temsutoshi took Brotherhood home with his fine knock of 44 runt not out. He was adjudged Man of the Match.
The final match will be played at ImkongmerenSports Complex from 9:00 AM onwards. The MDCA has appealed all cricket lovers to come and witness the match which promises to be another thriller as both teams are equally strong. Brotherhood is one of the oldest surviving cricket clubs in Nagaland and are umpteen times champions of the MDCA trophy while Halcyon Days not yet lifted one.
