EXPRESS MURAD OF KUWAIT CRICKET BAGS MAN OF THE TOURNAMENT AWARD

Teams Association for Cricket in Kuwait (TACK) and Caesars Group of Companies successfully hosted and conducted the “Independence Day” cricket weekend bonanza over the 13TH and 14th of August respectively. With as many as 16 teams, 200 players and a fantastic bunch of patriotic attendees, the second edition of this unique tape ball tournament was a huge success with a lively and vibrant atmosphere. Tapping a new market segment with this event for the 2nd time in consecutive years i.e. tape ball cricket lovers; TACK International is continuing to cement its reputation of innovator and pioneer when it comes to running domestic cricket in Kuwait.

Living up to their reputation of setting standards and benchmarks for others to follow, TACK-CAESARS offered a perfect mix of music and entertainment packed cricket to people who turned up in huge numbers to feel at home, away from home. Caesars Indo-Pak Cup saw 16 teams competing across 31 matches over the weekend with some of the best hard ball and tape ball players in Kuwait participating in 5 overs a side matches. The final was played between Schneider XI and Kuwait Raiders with the latter winning the toss and electing to bat first.  Kuwait Raiders who won the hearts of all the fans, teams and other fellow players with their fearless approach throughout the tournament under the competent captaincy of Roshan Fernandez could only manage to score 37 runs from the allotted 6 overs with Murad Khan providing the best spell of the tournament with deadly pace and accuracy picking up crucial wickets in the first over and there was no looking back from there on. At the half way stage the score did not look a threatening one considering the fact that it was a tape ball match and once Murad returned to bowl his second over, it was nothing but curtains for the highly spirited Kuwait Raiders. Raja who was the pick of the batsman for Kuwait Raiders until the finals could not pull off his much needed heroics in the grand finale.

It was the brilliant bowling duo of Murad and Imran that turned the match in the favor of Schneider XI. Murad in particular bowled the spell of the tournament and it was his all-round brilliance with bat and ball that won him man of the tournament award.
