4 Mar 2024

Muscat – TECS defeated Bank Muscat by three runs in the final of the A/B Division T20 tournament powered by Khimji Ramdas LLC & Al Ansari Group of Companies at the Oman Cricket Academy Ground recently.

Electing to bat first, TECS posted 147/9 despite Ravi Sharma (28) and Abdul Malik (57) providing a rollicking start. Bank Muscat’s Usman Ali Shah picked up three wickets and Adnan Ul Haq took two to restrict TECS from getting a big total.

In reply, Bank Muscat lost early wickets courtesy of Shanidh KT and Devansh Loya and could only score 17 off the first five overs. Although, Zain Raza’s sublime 56 and Usman Ali Shah’s 35 helped Bank Muscat recover.

However Jaleel Kannambath, who was the key to TECS’ qualifying for the final, starred again and took two wickets for just eight runs in his final two overs to help TECS win by three runs.

The post-match prize distribution ceremony was graced by Anil Khimji, Director – Khimji Ramdas and Kiran Asher, Founder – Al Ansari along with Duleep Mendis, Chief Development Officer – Oman Cricket.

Duleep Mendis presented Jaleel Kannambath of TECS with the Man of the Match Award, Kiran Asher handed the runners up trophy to Abbas Al Balushi and Ajay Hirlekar of Bank Muscat and Anil Khimji handed the winners trophy to Rahul Ramachandran and Jayaprakash Devaraju of TECS.

Brief scores: TECS 147/9 in 20 overs (Abdul Malik 57(46); Usman Ali Shah 3/15) beat Bank Muscat 144/9 in 20 overs (Zain Raza 56(37); Jaleel Kannambath 3/24, Shanidh KT 3/23) by 3 runs.
