HDCL 2019 1st Division Champions - Niagara Cricket Academy (NCA)

2019 HDCL First Division final was played between top seed Stoney Creek Cricket Academy (SCCA) and second seed Niagara Cricket Acadeny (NCA) on Oct 3rd, 2019 at Central Park Ground, Burlington. Batting first, NCA never got going to pose a theat of big total as SCCA bowlers not only kept the runs in check but also kept taking wickets at regular interval. Modest contributions from Amit Sharma (17), Jaspinder Singh (19) and a quickfire 24 of 24 balls by Sukh Sagar Singh helped NCA to reach a total of only 125 runs all out. Puneet, Balraj and Harmeet were most successful bowlers for SCCA with 2 wickets each.

SCCA started the modest run chase with an enterprising opening partnership of 35 runs in 7.4 overs between Manpreet and Soni Dhaliwal. However introduction of Sukh Sagar brought wickets for NCA to put some dent into free scoring SCCA batters. Sukh Sagar accounted for first 5 SCCA batsmen to return a career best figures of 8-1-17-5. At 88 for 5, SCCA were cruising towards a likely victory but a late order collapse caused by Ash Jhanji and Amrit Pal Singh for NCA, bundled SCCA for 97 all out thus making NCA a repeat champion of HDCL 1st division championship. 

Congratultions to NCA for an outstanding 2019 season by securing Super Elite status from Premier Division and champions of 1st division.
