Dimapur, May 5 (EMN): In the final match of the 2nd Late I Pihoto Awomi Inter-Club Cricket tournament on Thursday, Veritas Sports beat Sovima Cricket Club to lift the trophy.

Neizekho Rupreo was the main bowler, who took 3 wickets giving away only 27 runs, while Aneizo took 2 wickets for the Sovima Cricket Club.
