Izaara Cricket Fiesta 2019 was held at Singapore’s national cricket ground Indian Association. For the first time in its history, the tournament’s 8th edition was played over two days, the 12th and the 19th of January 2019. This edition saw 8 teams participating in the tournament split into two groups.
It was very exciting to have Star plus as our media partner on the event, making it the first time a channel has covered a local cricket event in the history of Singapore cricket .The Boutique tournament’s video coverage was done and will be aired on the Starplus TV Channel worldwide on the 3rd of February 2019 – 5 PM – Singapore Time.
Almost all the group stage matches were closely contested affairs, with victory margins ranging between 2 and 14 runs. As always, there were some prolific batting performances in the tournament, with 60-4’s and 38-6’s hit across the tournament. The big-hitting Gaurav Saini hitting a tournament-high six 6’s.
Prior to the final round of league games, the heavens let loose. Persistent rain saw a washout on the first day of the tournament. Fortunately, with overwhelming support from the teams, we were able to continue the tournament on the 19th of January 2019.
After closely fought semi-finals, the finals saw Mariners CC and Izaara cup debutants S7 Tamil Thalaivas go head to head. Mariners batting first, scored 44/2 in their allotted 6-overs which S7 Tamil Thalaivas managed to chase, in 4.1 Overs with 9 balls to spare.
S7 Tamil Thalaivas were crowned champions of the Izaara cup 2019.
