The Kousaria Memorial T20 cricket tournament was inaugurated at Chiternaar in Bandipora district on Saturday.

The tournament features 32 teams and will be played on knockout basis. The inaugural match was played between Rising Star Bandipora and Legends Cricket Club Sopore.

Former Ranji trophy cricketer from Bandipora, Raja Saleem was chief guest at the event. The opening match perhaps remained one sided affair as Rising Star cruised Legends Sopore by huge margin of 164 runs.

Batting first, Rising Star put on the mammoth total of 230 runs on board mostly due to a fine knock by captain Mudasir Dar who scored 92 runs. In reply, Legends Sopore were bundled out on meager score of 67. Saleem Ahmad who scored 13 was the only one to score in double figures.
