Chitwan Tigers vs Pokhara Rhinos Qualifier match will take place at Kiritipur Cricket Ground and will begin at 9:30 a.m. NST on October 6 this morning.
On Wednesday, October 6, the Chitwan Tigers and Pokhara Rhinos will face off in Qualifier 1 of the 2021 Everest Premier League. The game will be held at Kirtipur’s Tribhuvan University International Cricket Ground.
The Tigers, led by Dilip Nath, performed admirably in the ongoing tournament’s league stage. They started their season with four consecutive victories and finished first in the points table with a net run rate of 0.489. However, the Tigers were defeated by the Bhairahawa Gladiators by six wickets with 13 balls remaining.
The Tigers batted first and finished with a score of 164 for eight. Karim Janat led the team in scoring with 35 points off 37 shots, including one four and two sixes. Janat also took two wickets, but Pradeep Airee’s 43-ball 72 led the Gladiators to a convincing win on Monday.
The Rhinos, led by Binod Bhandari, finished third in the points table after losing two of their five league games. However, their previous 14-run victory over the Kathmandu Kings XI should put them in good stead for the Qualifier.
Amit Shrestha and Ryan Burl both hit half-centuries to help the Kings XI reach 182 for eight. Following a rain delay, the Rhinos were given a revised target of 129 in 15 overs. Sahan Arachchige and Bibek Yadav scored in the 40s to propel the Rhinos to victory.
