The exciting quarters and semifinals of the Bayut Striker's Cup
Once all the group stage matches of this 2018 cricket tournament for real estate agencies in Dubai came to an end, it was time to decide which of these teams would go through to the quarters and the semifinals of the match. The very first quarterfinal cricket match was between Vierra Property Brokers, the winners of Group A, and Property Zone, the winners of Group B. Continuing their brilliant form throughout the course of the tournament, Property Zone emerged victorious in this game, sealing their position in the semifinals. The second game was between Homes4Life and SNS Real Estate, the third between Al Burooj Real Estate and Pleasant Real Estate and the last quarterfinal match of the cricket tournament for Dubai property agents was between Springfield Real Estate and Nexus Capital Real Estate.
The semifinals saw the eventual winners Property Zone tackle the team from Homes4Life and the runners-up team Nexus Capital, win against Pleasant Real Estate.
The supercharged atmosphere of the much-awaited finals was made even more exciting because of the ardent fans and supporters of both Property Zone and Nexus Capital. After a confident display of their batting and bowling skills, Property Zone walked away as the undisputed champions of the ultimate real estate cricket tournament of 2018!
The iconic moment was made special when the members of the team were awarded the cash prize of AED 4000 and individual gold medals by Bayut's Sales Director Fibha Ahmed, and the Assistant Director of Sales, Chris Crawford. The runners-up team of Nexus Capital Real Estate also took home a cash prize of AED 2400 and individual silver medals.
