The Editors' Editing Bulls have been successful in winning the champion's trophy of Dr Rajkumar Cup T20 Cricket Match, which was organised by the Karnataka Dancers' Association (KDA) at Kanteerava Stadium on Sunday. The final match was held between Directors' 11 and Editors' 11 on Sunday afternoon.
The KDA had organised all league, semi final and final matches at Nagarasabhe Ground in Davanagere on July 25. The eight teams had played the league matches and Dancers' Kicha's 11, Editors' Editing Bulls, Cameramen's Lens Kings and Directors' 11 had made it to the semi finals. But the semi final and final matches of Dr Raj Cup had been shifted to Bangalore due to the weather conditions and bad pitch in Davangere Bapuji Stadium.
Finally, the semi final matches were held between Kicha's 11 Vs. Editing Bulls and Lens Kings Vs. Directors 11 on Sunday morning. The Editing Bulls and the Directors' 11 had defeated the Kicha's 11 and the Lens Kings respectively and entered the finals. In the finals, the Director's team won the toss and chose to bat first. The team scored 148 runs in 15 overs. Later, the Editors' team chased their score hard and got 149 runs in 14 overs thereby winning the champions trophy in Sandalwood Premiere League 2010.
However, the last day of Dr. Raj Cup witnessed a huge gathering of 50,000 people at Kanteerava Stadium on Sunday. R Ashok, Minister for Transport and Katta Subramanya Naidu, Minister for Housing and IT and BT, Actress Aindrita Ray, Directors Nagasekhar, Mahesh Babu and producer Shankare Gowda had turned up to watch the final match. But the disappointing thing about the match was the absence of popular Sandalwood celebs like Upendra, Ganesh, Puneet Rajkumar, Shivaraj Kumar, Neetu, Ramya and Radhika Pandit.
