Bangladesh Sides Take Cricket Sixes Titles at HuaHin - 6/4/2016

 

 

The final day of the 21stBangkok Post Invitational HuaHin Cricket Sixes saw marvelous play.  And it was true cricket.

 

For the second year in a row, the Veterans Final came down to the last ball.  And once again the Leongatha Woodchoppers, batting second, hit the ball hard, only to have their opponents to come up with a catch to preserve the victory.   This year, it was Baden Powell who brokeLeongatha hearts, when Glen Elmi held the catch off Graham Wilson’s delivery to win the day. 

In the Masters final the teams also kept the crowds in suspense.  The Black Swans put on a decent total and defended it fiercely.  On the last ball, Narayanganj needed a three to tie and a four to win.  And Narayanganj captain Titu came through, hitting a four, all run, to claim the crown.

 

The Cup final provided no such suspense.  It had splendid cricket instead.  And the winning part of that splendid cricket was the Walton Warriors’ bowling.  Facing a hard-hitting Carlton team that had brought up a 2016 tournament-high 97 in the semi-final, Narayanganj dominated by holding their foes to only 45 runs and then easily reaching that target. 

In the popular Hua Hin Gift, a running race open to all, 63-year-old Graham Wilson held on to win for the second year in a row.

 

Hosted by the Hua Hin Dusit Thani and sponsored by the Tourist Authority of Thailand, the Tournament was assessed to be the most successful in all of its 21 years.  Year 22 beckons next April 2017.
