HDCL 2017 Elite Division Champions!! Burlington Warriors Cricket Club

Burlington Warriors Cricket Club of Burlington won the  Hamilton & District Cricket League 2017 Elite Divison championship by over-coming very determined Oakville Cricket Club in the final played on Sunday Sept 24 at Central Cricket Park in Burlington. Batting first Burlington Warriors set a competative target of 243 in 40 overs - thanks largely to an outstanding centruy by star player - Imran Raja. Oakvile Cricket Club started off very positively and were off  to a cracking start with a 72 runs opening wicket partnership between Saad Zafar and skipper Niaz Paracha (41 runs). Oakville was well poised to achieve the target of 243 but got a set back with the dismissal of Saad Zafar (79 runs). Rikin Christian started to take charge after a mini collapse but his untimely runout for 35 runs at score of 193 tilted the match back in favor of Burlington Warrior. Burlington Warriorrs won by 34 runs.

Imran Raja with a centruy (102 runs) in batting - came back with an outstanding spell of spin bowling to break Oakville's back with a spell of 7 overs 18 runs with 3 important wickets.

Congratulations to Burlington Warriors Cricket Club for an outstanding season and capping it off with Elite Division title.
