Huzaifa Inspires Shabab Whites Domination

BY ZAIR RIAZ

In a group match of the Bohra Champions League 2017, played at the Al Nadil Burhani Ground, Shabab Whites took on the Burhani CC, in a match that turned out to be a one sided affair.

Shabab Whites batted first and were off to a majestic start, with both openers timing the ball well. Huzaifa Hasan was the star performer, scoring a blistering 55 runs in only 38 balls with the aid of 4 fours and 4 huge sixes. Fellow opener Muntasir Saifuddin supported him with a confident 31 runs, in an innings that had 6 boundaries in it. For the Burhani CC, Muhammad Iftikhar was the star with the ball, finishing with unbelievable figures of 4 over, 28 runs for 6 wickets! However, despite his heroics, Shabab Whites managed to put a competitive total of 179 runs.

Burhani CC, chasing 180 runs, took off in a shaky manner, losing both openers cheaply. However, Murtaza Ali put up some resistance with a solid 30 runs to try and bring his team back into the game. Nevertheless, the Shabab Whites bowlers were fantastic with the ball and successfully restricted their opponents to just 96 runs. Mohammad Sitamu was the lead bowler, taking 4 wickets for 16 runs in his 3 overs, while Ali Asghar pitched in with 2 wickets also.

Shabab Whites won the match by 83 runs.
