Kishen’s half century in vain as Warriors beat Paro
Paro Bluemoon’s Kishen Ghalley scored his maiden half century and first in the tournament but all in vain as his team went down to True Warrior’s by five runs in the ongoing Bhutan T20 Smash 2022.
True Warrior’s narrow victory over Paro Bluemoon CC has kept their hopes alive for the top two spots. In the first innings, Warrior’s opener Kinga Loday scored the highest individual score of 45 runs of 44 balls to help his team post 130 for the loss of seven wickets in 20 overs. Tarun Kumar came up with other noticeable score of 21 of 16 balls.
Paro Bluemoon fast bowler Pema Wangchuk and Nabin Chettri were the pick of the bowlers with two wickets.
Paro lost both their openers within the first two overs but it was wicket-keeper batsman Kishen Ghalley who churned the innings with 56 of 54 balls before getting bowled out in the 18th over off Kezang Nima during a critical moment of the game that saw True Warriors snatch a narrow win over the Paro Bluemoon. Hritesh Barman (17 of 20 balls) and Pema Wangchuk (17 of 9 balls) came up with other notable scores.
True Warrior’s Kesang Nima was declared the man of the match.
