Super Daddies Annihilate Karachi Titans

BY SHEHZAD BANGKOK

Super Daddy CC played Karachi Titans on 9th of August.There was one titanic performance last night at Moin Khan Stadium as the Super Daddies Cricket Club cruised to their third straight win over Sauds Titans by the ego crushing margin of 90 runs. Adnan 'Andy' Amjad should have spent the evening in a casino because everything he touched turned to gold. He started with a blistering 41 runs of 25 balls, including two sixes that recalled memories of his namesake Andy Flintoff. Then, coming on as first change he rattled the Titans' top order, taking two key wickets including the dangerous Ali Zuberi. After Amjad's burst, the match ended as a contest with all the SDCC bowlers bowling steady lines and the Titans batsmen retreated into their shells. Such was the bowling discipline exhibited that the Daddies' trio of Muftis, Ali, Babar and Yasser, bowled 8 overs for a miserly 36 runs in the second half of the innings. The Titans barely managed to cross the three figure mark, ending their innings at 126. 

Earlier, the Daddies had muscled their way to a impressive score of 194. Rehan Sheikh gave them a solid start with 29and even though Shehzad Jumani and Naeem Siddiqui went early, Daddies' skipper Shahram Rasool played another captain's knock of 25 off 17 balls, despite being physically incapacitated. This season Rasool has really led from the front, his batting under pressure taking on almost Misbahesque proportions. Adeel Mansha, coming in at number six instead of his usual one down slot, also had a promising start with a flurry of boundaries that were so exquisitely timed that his bat seemed to be kissing the ball to the boundary.  the real impetus to the innings however, came from the middle order, where Andy Amjad combined with Ali Mufti for an explosive 80 run partnership for the 6th wicket. Mufti's straight hitting was magnificent as he twice deposited the ball over the boundary for Six. While Amjad, ever the cheeky street fighter, alternated between trading witty comments with the fielders and depositing the Titans bowlers to the boundary. Both Amjad and Mufti, who scored 46 off 22, got their career highest scores. The Daddies seem to be finding a rich vein of form just at the right moment, in advance of tournament season in September and October. 

Result: Super Daddy win by 68 runs
