When a team is led for five long years by a captain with a humble personality, there is bound to be a major shift in team dynamics following a leadership change. This is what happened when Deepak Janoti took the reigns of Annapurna stars at the start of Season 6 of Hurricanes champions league.
Annapurna stars sailed through quiet impressively by defeating few key players to reach semi finals. Facing TPS in semi finals was quiet a tough gig but some great bowling performance by Mandeep Wadhwa a.k.a "Mandy the Handy" and Clive Rose helped them reach finals with ease.
KLM-KINGS had a great season and remained undefeated throughout the season , however final pressure got to them and team folded at 134/8 and Annapurna stars were able to chase the total in 19.4 overs with 7 wickets in hand.
Great display by both sides and exceptional performance by Clive rose at finals taking a crucial wickets of Ravi Patel and Umair Butt , and scoring 41* off the bat.
Annapurna stars became part of history of ICSL T20 by winning the grand finals.
