Kathmandu, June 8
The Tribhuvan Army Club and the Nepal Police Club shared the prize of the first Prime Minister’s Cup cricket tournament as the rain obstructed the match halfway.
The Army were chasing the 127-run target posted by the Police when the rain started. Just two overs had been played and the Army had scored seven runs at the loss of a wicket.
Though the rain stopped after an hour, the umpire decided not to resume the game owing to damp pitch at the Tribhuvan University Cricket Stadium and share the title.
Consequently, both the departmental teams received rs 1.5 million each. Earlier, it was announced that the winners would get Rs 2 million and the runners-up would receive the half.
In the first innings, the Police had scored meagre 126 runs at the loss of all wickets in 45.1 overs.
Total eight teams, including three departmental and five regional, had participated in the tournament organised by the National Sports Council.
