Final scheduled on 7 August
MCA cricket springs back into action after a lull period of 3-months, when the 10th Stafford Motor Co. sponsored ‘Honda’ Trophy – MCA ‘G’ Division 25 Over League Tournament final between Pyramid Wilmer and Abans Group, takes place on 7 August (Saturday) at the MCA Grounds, commencing 10:00 am. The final was originally scheduled for 2 May, but was forced to be put on hold due to the C-19 third wave.
The match will be played strictly adhering to the Government Health Ministry COVID19 health prevention regulations and with a limited number of spectators. The two teams are perhaps a little rusty at the moment having played their semi-finals way back on 24 April.
Pyramid Wilmer created a huge upset eliminating the unbeaten and tournament favourite Hayleys Group ‘B’ by 2-wickets, whilst Abans Group comprehensively beat Zillion Systems by 46 runs.
