Best Bowler: For his consistent performance with the ball especially in the knockout matches, Michael of team Friday Boys wins the Best Bowler award.

Best Batsman: For his match winning 45 in the group stage against a very strong team GoFetch, which was composed of Central Texas Cricket League players, and for single-handedly winning the Semi-Finals for his team by scoring 44 out of 58, Qasim of team Shalimar Express wins the Best Batsman award.

This year we had a memorable tournament with 24 enthusiastic teams. We thank everyone for making this event not only a cricketing success but more importantly, also a philanthropic success. This shows that Cricket can act as a wonderful medium for combining the pleasure of competition and philanthropy.

We deeply appreciate all volunteers without whom this tournament would not have been possible. Thank you all.
