Juggernauts lifted the trophy of the 25th edition of Winter Cricket Challenge (WCC) after defeating Imperials by five wickets in Wokha on Saturday. 

Electing to bat first after winning the toss, Imperials set 100 runs target for Juggernauts with Abemo Kikon scoring 52 runs from 60 balls.  

But that was not enough, as Juggernauts batsmen made notable contributions and won the match by five wickets in 17 overs. 

Hakao Murry, who claimed two wickets and delivered inexpensive 8 runs in 4 overs was named the man of the match. 

The tournament was organised by Senior Noble Klan. It may be recalled that in the middle part of 1996, five members of district cricket players formed a group called “Senior Noble Klan” with a mission to guide and nurture the upcoming local young cricketers. 

The first edition of Winters Cricket Challenge commenced on December 26, 1996 with seven teams.  The WCC was held at a time when the popularity of cricket was in its nascent stage among the locals. 

But with its introduction, the history of the game in Wokha town underwent tremendous change and gradually accelerated its popularity not only in Wokha district but also in other parts of Nagaland as well as the neighbouring states. 

The present SNK is headed by Pankathung Ovung as president and Penthungo Lotha as general secretary. 

Launched on December 3,1990. Nagaland Post is the first and highest circulated newspaper of Nagaland state. Nagaland Post is also the first newspaper in Nagaland to be published in multi-colour.
