Chennai Singams, led by actor Suriya, defeated Jiiva’s Thanjai Warriors in the final to win the Lebara Star Cricket tournament at M A Chidambaram stadium on Sunday.

Batting first, Thanjai Warriors scored 83 runs in their stipulated six overs for the loss of two wickets. Suriya’s team managed to reach the target of 84 runs for the loss of two wickets and win the tournament. Superstar Rajinikanth inaugurated the tournament by tossing the coin for the first match.

A large number of celebrities from the Tamil film industry participated in the event, including Superstar Rajinikanth, Ulaganayagan Kamal Haasan, Prabhu, Vikram, Surya, Vishal and Karthi. Several top stars from other film industries too took time off to be a part of the event. The entire film fraternity also cut a cake to celebrate the birthday of actor Vikram.

Nadigar Sangam general secretary Vishal said that while proposing the idea for the tournament, many questions were raised about the feasability of holding such an event. “Today, we have successfully managed to hold such an event, thanks to the co-operation of the executive committee of the Nadigar Sangam,” he said and thanked a whole lot of people including top stars, fans, Corporation officials and police officers.
