Balijan meet Sagalee in T20 Super League final today

KOLMA, 12 Jan:  Balijan will meet Sagalee in the final of the Papum Pare T20 Super League on Wednesday.

Opting to bat first after winning the toss, Balijan set Doimukh a moderate target of 87 run in their allotted 20 overs to win.

Doimukh were almost pulled off the run chase but fell short by two runs in a nerve-wrecking last-ball finish against Balijan.

Taba Deghe of Balijan, who pulled off three run-out and claimed a wicket, was declared man of the match.

Sagalee crushed Sangdupota by 125 run in the second semifinal.

Sagalee batted first and posted 205/3 in their allotted 20 overs.

Chasing the target, Sangdupota were bundled out for a paltry 60 run in the 15th over.

Deservingly, Sagalee’s Techi Neri, who scored 63 runs (4×9, 6×1) from just 38 balls and took four wickets for five runs in three overs, was adjudged man of the match.

Brief scores:

Balijan: 86/8 (20 overs); Doimukh: 84/8 (20 overs).
