Bhutan Telecom and Friend's United share the same unity amongst the team members as both the team seems equally poised in terms of Batting and Bowling, But Bhutan Telecom Skipper Dorji had another plan for the Final and it proved to be a miracle as his side grasp hold of Friend's united Batting line up with Excellent Field Placement and Change in Bowling.

Friend's United might be wondering why the cup has slipped from their hand, yes of course Friend's United the Champion of the Zimdra Vanaspati cup and the favorites of the Tournament had themselves to blame for the runner's up trophy. Their Bowlers conceding way to many extras which literally took the match away from them, they should have learn form the previous matches, and it's not that they can't come up, indeed they are mature enough to correct their mistake. And Kudos to Bhutan Telecom for their excellent team spirit and unity showed both on and off the filed, their players Tashi, Jigme Singye, Supprit and Thinley Tenzin did wonder for the team and are great asset for the team in future.

The tournament did brought some lights to the Bhutan cricket as the crowd now seems to understand the basic rules of the cricket game and keen in watching the match. With the commentary box and commentator equally giving fun stuff about the cricket and the Match states along with rules, the crowd loves watching as their ears get with full commentator flares.

His presence was well felt by all the players and crowd. Apparently girls and ladies did enjoyed the Tournament as few of their boy friend were playing and performing well, the likes of Tashi and Thinley Tenzin , Their name are chanted every times they are at striker end or bowling. A great Final at the end with Bhutan Broadcasting Service media team taking the match clip and Interview for a Cricket Show later this week

Bhutan Cricket History

Cricket in Bhutan is started by a group of friend's, when cricket was introduced in Bhutan,The President His Excellency Lyonpo Khandu Wangchuk, the Prime Ministry of Bhutan. Vice-President Dasho Ugen Tshechup Dorje the chairman of singye group of companies, Honorary Treasure Mr Ugyen Tenzin, Honorary Executive Member Tshering Tashi, Chief Executive Officer Mr Jigme Namgyel Norbu, Honorary Executive member Christopher Faris, Dasho Thinley Wangchuk Dorje the Deputy Managing Director of Bhutan Tourism Corporation Limited and, Mr Damber Singh Gurung the assistant Coach and...lot's more were the first and foremost people who brought the live game of cricket in Drukyul, the Thunder Dragon Kingdom of Bhutan,Their Contribution to Bhutan Cricket is immense and a kids or cricketer of the current and next generation and present generation would be proud with them.

The First Time Cricket tournament was played in 2000 and at that time, i was studying in 12th standard, i have been an passionate for the Cricket after watching 1999 world cups where my hero stand India Rahul Dravid, i continued my passion when i was in 11th and 12th standard where i have a friend's who is as passionate like me.

Cricket an All Round Game

I was just wondering about the youths of Bhutan who some were born talent, some achieve talent and some are dumb, i wasn't quite sure why the youths of Bhutan have to suffer while using the narcotic and others drugs substance to feel the warmth within themselves. They can actually do lot's and to minimize drug free , someone or other should take up something which is good for their health, be into games or sports.

If you are into a sports or games, you tend to forget all the bad stuff that is around and learn many things. I take the example of a cricketer, being a Bhutanese, cricket has come to this Beautiful country just couples of years ago and it has attracted lot's of young kids and youth, indeed these kids are so dedicated to the cricket that at one time, you have to drive them to the ground as they are informed coaching session or match practice at 10 Am in morning, the moment you goes to office at 9 Am, kids would be waiting in the door to carry the cricket equipments and are ready to go for the Coaching session or Match Days.

That's the spirit of young enthusiastic cricketer of Bhutan at Present and they are more into cricket than into drugs!! Good one mate!!, as an youth, we should have sense of responsibility, be prepared to do the things and help other. First and foremost things, to avoid using drugs.
I take another example,recently Bhutan cricket Introduced twenty20 Tournament in the Capital city of Thimphu, there wer large numbers of Crowd watching the match and 80 % are kids or youth, they have the zest for cricket.

The under-15 Bhutan National Squad which were runner's up in the ACC U-15 Challenge cup 2006 held in Thailand, Most of them were signed by Druk11 Club Chairman Ashis Chhetri, he as an veteran when the cricket started for the first time in Bhutan. He is experienced campaigner and had been involved with the Bhutan Cricket Council Board Tournament Till date, last time when i interview him prior to the start of the Twenty20 Tournament, he rightly said that he got all the under-15 players into his team and want them to lead the club later when he retires.

When his team were knocked out in the group stages, these young under-15 players are still not satisfied, they still want to be part of the winning team, yeas indeed they are winners and they all deserved applauds, their presence in the Commentary Box and scoreboards were brilliant, they doesn't want to miss the Cricket, and yea, they really don't want to miss it!! so when few of them took the Commentary and few as Scorer, they as an cricketer knows the value of the Game,Cricket is not only Batting and Bowling, anyone can do it if i am not mistaken, there are other things which someone as an cricketer love to do and it gives them an complete package of Cricket Game and It's Rightly the Game of all round.
The Kids just loves cricket.

Clearance of Cricket Goods from Paro Airport

Please go to Bhutan Cricket official Website for Twenty20 Tournament Updates!!

The Latest News from Thimphu at the time of writing this post, a drizzling of snowfall at the moment, seems like Thimphu is going to be covered by snow if it keeps falling. The Much Awaited Snow for more than years.

The day for me is interesting though my neck still in pain of the last Saturday match, it all started with late night SMS from My boss(Official) Mr Jigme N Norbu, from Thailand, he was there for sports and fitness course, the Message read "Is it possible for u to come to Paro with exemption letters, will get the cricket goods", actually he is referring to the Cricket Goods donated by Asian cricket Council for the Development of Junior Cricket in the Country, Asian Cricket Being the Governing Body of Asia Region.

The Cricket Goods has come to Paro Airport as Cargo and it's been lying there for almost two weeks as i have been processing the Exemption Certificate from the Ministry of Revenue and Custom, The Cricket Goods was all packed in the Cartoon and have 23 Cartoon totaling 552 kgs.

I got up early Morning, took shower, eat breakfast as i have to take a drive to Paro which is 1 hour drive from Capital City Thimphu. As i was walking in the office i had a plan and my mind insist on not taking my donkey (Bike) , then a lightening idea struck in my empty head, how about taking lift from someone who is going to Paro Airport to Pick his brother whom they are on the same plane. As i was lucky to get lift, the paro airport seems quite packed with Tours Operator Buses and Guides waiting for their clients, there were many other Bhutanese family waiting for their relatives.

I got into the Cargo Office and after getting all the documents submitted, they let go out our office Cricket Goods from the Cargo, i was lucky to be helped by one of the staffs, as each cartoon weighing 24kgs and massive 23 cartoons. The cartoons were all loaded into Taxis as i opted to go with the Same person whom i came along from Thimphu. The taxis has come to Thimphu at 4 pm in Afternoon as the skies was over casted for a likely snow fall.

Yet Another problem, there aren't any players around office surrounds, i had to look someone urgently to get the Goods carried third floor of the Building, or My neck would and shoulder would be in wreck further causing trouble. Luck seems to follow me as i looked around into the cricket ground hoping some players would be practicing, indeed i got few players, seek their help, i turned my way to office when my cell starts ringing, and it was from the Taxis drivers and inform me that the they are just miles away from our office. within few minutes the taxis has come and i got my purse ready for the hire charges, It cost me 800 Nu(Currency Name) per Taxi. the boys have done it again and my neck and shoulder got something to be least bother.

A Moment before this post, i have written two Post for my Office Website, It's about the Match Reports of Yesterday Twenty20 Tournament. Poor me again, my hands are freezing with cold and i can't move my hands around the keyboard, this is to blame self as last time i blew up the Blower due to power flucation, a half way through my post, my cousin brother studying in Royal Institute of Health and Science has come to see me and to to my place.

For All my Valuable readers, wish Thimphu " Happy Snowfall "... hahah..just kidding.

A preview of The Saturday Twenty20 Match and it's Preparation

As I am Favor by the Cricket and it's has been my favorite sports, I have been assign to update Bhutan cricket website and i opted to turn down this blog into my cricketing view. All the Match details and Match reports about Bhutan Cricket will be updated in the Bhutan Cricket Website and i go here with my cricket views. It's pretty tired though, but working with Bhutan cricket Council Board is such a fun, the richness of help by my colleagues and by the Board Members, the much waited Twenty20 Cricket Tournament in Bhutan Started with a big buzz in the Changlimithang Cricket Ground yesterday as being the chief coordinator of the Tournament, life is hectic in arranging all sort for a successful tournament.

There were changes in the scenario as i got the music system for the first time with live commentary, every two's, fours, and six runs scored by Batsmen and Wickets claimed by Bowlers were buzzed by a short music, The crowd was good too, though much of the Bhutanese are not into Cricket as it's new games which is gaining it's popularity. The success of Under-15 Bhutanese Cricket Team in the recently concluded ACC U-15 Challenge cup 2006, held in Thailand send a waves of Cricket all around the Country.

As usual, the morning and evening work load had to be the toughest as the freezing weather of Thimphu merges into the Bone and makes it unmovable, huge two speakers along with equalizer and other Commentary Stuff had to be carried down from the Office to the Ground and Back in the Evening. The Voluntary service rendered by few senior players and Under-15 Players is immense.

The opening match saw a small formal ceremony in the ground where Mr Ugyen Tenzin, The Honorable Treasurer of Bhutan Cricket Council Board graced the occasion being the Chief Guest, the ceremony was just simple were the chief guest briefing the players about the Beautiful game of Cricket and It's Popularity amongst the Bhutanese Youth, the ceremony lasted for 10 minutes or so where chief guest opened with a wild swing of the bat.

For the first time, Captains of the Both the team were interview after the toss about the plans and strategy of the match. A post Match Interview was also done for the interest of the Crowd and the Players.The First match between Youth11 and Drupchu 11 who came all the way from Phuntsholing saw some Brilliant Fielding and Bowling from both the team. Youth11 wining by Comfortably at the end.

The Commentary Team comprise of Mr Kencho Tshering of Friend's united, Mr Tshering Dorji of Friend United as well, Mr Monaj Adhikari of Kanglung Hiflier and Myself, apparently Daniel opted to be DJ and carried out the Music system, a non comparable with that of an Saturday Night Party DJ.There were much cheers as the Commentary Team gave mind blowing and interesting commentary during the course of the Matches which attracted a huge numbers of spectator. Players were Introduced when they came on the filed and as well as Bowler bowling from the End.

The Afternoon Match between Veteran's Friend's United and Young Legs of Druk11 saw blistering shot from Friend's United Opening Batsmen in Tshering Tashi and Tshering Dorji. The Match turned out to be an interesting in the course of Druk 11 run chase of 137 poised by Friend's United. With Friend's Bowler conceding way too many wides and the breeze blowing from Archery End causing some chillioutness amongst Friend's United Players, the match ended with Friend's United winning by 71 runs.

At the End of the day, a tired body let no where to go but to get a good sleep, and come back early morning for yet another Exciting Cricket match.
