    Looks like Bhutan Telecom team is one of the top contender for this tournament's tittle. The team of allrounder proves its mettle once again. To recover from such precarious situation can only be a work of truely well balanced, highly talented team.
    When the 9th Batsman (Shiva Shankar) can hit so many runs, spare a thought for the opponents...and one can imagine what the top 5 regular batsman are capable of. For once i m glad that i am not facing such determined opponents.
    Spare a thoght for Druk Towa team to... they smelled victory and just when the celebration was about to start Jigme and Shiv spoil the party. DT's bowlers bowled very well but lacked just the final push to polish things off...
    On any given day...any bowler could take a fiver or batsman hit a century...but seeing the BT boys play, they may not settle for second best.
