NCL Dynamites – 2018 Chiang Mai Sixes Cup winners.

It was like old times at the Chiang Mai Sixes last weekend as Bangladesh side NCL Dynamites won the Cup by beating Australian team St Francis de Sales by six wickets in the final.  The two sides were clearly the best two combinations in the tournament but it was Mehedi Maruf who proved the difference.  Having already hit 30 in the semi-final against Kashmir Thunder, he repeated the feat later in the day to be named Player of the Finals.

A busy day was not even put off course by heavy rain which delayed proceedings for an hour as a total of seven finals were decided.  Central Spirit defeated Varee Thai Angels to win the Ladies Cup, while Ios Malakas beat Red Lion Wombats to win the Spoon, Drifters overcame Applecross to win the Plate, Lanna beat Roosters to win the Bowl, Got the Runs defeated Yorkshire Puddings to win the Shield and the day finished with Awali beating Summer Saints to win the Vase.
