Newfoundland Super Kings win summer league
NSK needed to final their final match against the Royal Challengers to win the Summer League, and they did so in convincing fashion, by 62 runs.
They batted first, and lost Talha Riaz in the first over, bowled by Mukul Diwan who unfortunately could not play any further part in the game through injury. Neelav Diwan, batting well above his normal place at number 3 repaid his captain’s faith in him with an accomplished 53, and contributions from Nick Baxter (29) and Raga Genesan (24*) took NSK to 175/6.
An excellent opening spell from Deep Patel (3/7) had the Royal Challengers in trouble early, and they never recovered. Wajid Moinuddin took 3 wickets as RC were bowled out for 110.
NSK thus topped the league by two points, losing just once in the season and were presented with the Senthil Selvamani Trophy.
