Saakh Group Overpower Resource Linked

BY ZAIR RIAZ

The Saakh Group faced the Resource Linked in a friend encounter played at the TMC Ground.

Saakh Group, after electing to bat first, were off to a flying start with opener Asif going on to score a magnificent 57 runs in just 31 balls with 6 fours and 3 colossal sixes. With the momentum set for a high score, the middle order consisting of Younus and Wasim, did justice to the start given by their opener. Younus scored a brilliant 67 runs of just 29 balls with 4 fours and 5 maximums, while Wasim supported him with a solid 25 runs with 3 boundaries and a six. The pick of the bowlers for Resource Linked was Maaz, picking 2 wickets for 27 runs. Saakh Group ended their 20 overs at a massive score of 215 runs for the loss of 6 wickets.

Resource Linked started their chase in an equally confident manner with the middle order playing the key role. Farrukh contributed with a rapid 45 runs in 21 balls, with 3 fours and 3 sixes, while Nabil chipped in with 23 runs. However the bowling line up was too strong with Shariq taking 2 wickets for just 12 runs in his 3 overs. The target of 216 runs always seemed almost impossible for Resource Linked, who were restricted to 151 runs in 20 overs, for the loss of 7 wickets.

Saakh Group won the match by 64 runs.
