“PEI Cricket League 2020 came to an end. It was by far one of the best tournaments that PEI Cricket Association had arranged in their history. Six clubs had participated and after nail biting finish ACC 0, PEI Tigers, ACC 3 and Warriors sealed the top four places to compete in the semifinal. It was until the last game PEI Strikers fought and if they had won against Tigers, they could have reached to the semifinal. PEI Tuskers had wonderful tournament but few close games went against their luck and couldn’t reach to semifinal. After entertaining semifinals, it was ACC 0 and PEI Tigers who sealed the spot for Final. It was anyone’s’ game but ACC 0 had the last smile as they beat Tigers by 24 runs. Congratulations to Captain Parth Patel and his team.
Player of the Tournament: Fahad Hussain – 1062 Runs and 24 wickets from 25 matches. He has record of six consecutive sixes from one over. An outstanding performer for PEI League. Fahad led the PEI Tigers from front and his outstanding leadership almost won the championship for Tigers.
Man of The Final: Priyam Soni – 847 runs and 36 wickets from 25 matches, came very close to winning the man of the tournament. But was man of the Final for his outstanding performance 67 runs and 3 wickets took away the game from Tigers. PEI Cricket is lucky to have Priyam Soni and Fahad Hussain.
