LAHORE - The four-day Royal Palm Floodlit Cricket Tournament endorsed and supported by Coke, Highland, Fr Cables and GNC concluded here at the Royal Palm Cricket arena bringing cheers and glory for the ultimate winners Lahore Lions. The winning team Lahore Lions emerged triumphant after some hectic battles along the way and a particularly hostile one against the runners-up Indus Warriors. During this competitive event, quite a few individual feats of brilliance were conspicuous and although batsmen like Shoaib Shams, Ramzan Sheikh, Faizan Chaudry and Ijaz Ahmed played exquisitely and diligently, their efforts could not take their teams to the victory stand, as their team members were not sharp in fielding and missed out too many chances. Lahore Lions were all fighters to the core and be it batting or bowling or fielding, the breathtaking touch was very much apparent. Omer Salamat was a fast bowler who could vary his pace at will, unnerving and diffusing the batting lights of his opponent teams and his team mate, Junaid Ahmed milked runs with unsustained hostility when it came to producing mind blowing strokes. Other team mates who lent some forceful support are Tanveer Karamat, Sheraz Khawaja and Junaid Ashraf. For a useful all-round performance, Tanveer Karamat of Lahore Lions was declared man of the tournament. At the conclusion of the event in a grand prize distribution ceremony attended by a large number of families and children, the prizes were awarded by former Test cricketer Ijaz Ahmed and Atif Rana of Qatar Lubricants and Imran Chaudry of GNC. Because of the immense interest, it was stated that the next championship would be held in April after the World Cup.
