A record 16 teams entered the ACT HomeWorld Thunder Nation Cup, which was contested at Lyneham Sportsgrounds on Sunday.
The HomeWorld Thunder Nation Cup exists to bring individuals and communities together and to celebrate culture through cricket.
The third installment of the Canberra event saw PK 11 and Sher E Punjab contest the final for the third straight year. In a high-scoring affair, Sher E Punjab posted 182 off their 10 overs, thanks largely to 40 not-out from Goldy Virk.
Despite a quick start to the run chase, PK 11 fell 25 runs short in their quest for back-to-back titles.
The HomeWorld Thunder Nation Cup continues across September and October, with free community trials held for communities across the Thunder Nation. Individuals are encouraged to register for their community trials, where a team will be selected to represent their community at the HomeWorld Thunder Nation Cup Finals Day in November.
