In a gripping Queenstown Cricket Club T20 final last Friday, newcomers Hanley’s Farm Rangers’ Raman Singh (pictured) proved the difference against defending champs
Wakatipu Warlords.

After a wobbly start, his 50, batting at no.7, helped Hanley’s Farm to 130 for 8.

Though Wakatipu reached 60 for 0 in reply, Hanley’s Farm’s bowlers, particularly Sahil Kumar and Jagtaran Dhillon, turned the screws, and they managed only 118 for 8 off their 20 overs.

Meanwhile, in last Tuesday’s semis, Wakatipu’s Amrit Gossal scored a whirlwind 100 off just 32 balls as his team chased down Arrowtown’s competitive 148 for 5 for the loss of no wicket, in the 10th over.

In the other semi, Hanley’s Farm ran down the Barbarians’ meagre 98 for 8 — after Ritender Singh took 4 for 26 — for the loss of only two wickets, thanks to Pardeep Kumar’s 59 not out.
