2017-18 Season - ICSL Hurricanes Champions League Summary

Two of the best teams reached last season’s Grand Final in TPS – Tasmanian Punjabi Sports Club, which remained undefeated for the whole tournament, playing against the Pak Eagles – another strong outfit.

Both teams have a very interesting history with their origins of India and Pakistan showcasing national pride in the cricket world.

However, the spirit displayed for the Grand Final was that of unity and harmony and a celebration of the great love of cricket.

At the end of their 20 overs, the TPS mounted a massive total of 5/196 providing a big task for the Pak Eagles to chase down.

Knowing a quick start was vital for the Pak Eagles, they were unable put together enough partnerships to make a real dent in TPS’s imposing total and stumbled to be all out in 14 overs with 105 on the board.

Man Of The Match was Gagan Virk with 41 runs and 3 wickets for the TPS.

His teammate Sarwan Kumar was awarded Player Of The Tournament, amassing 300 runs and taking 20 wickets for the season.

The best first year team was awarded to the Gurkha Legends while the Fair Play Award went to the Derwent Scorpions for their cheerful performance and aligning with the Hurricanes Champions League vision.
