Falcons Defend Low Total

BY TAYYAB BALAGAMWALA

Falcons v Defenders

An important match of the 8th residence cup took place between Falcons and Defenders at skbz cricket ground. Falcons batted first and some good bowling by Defenders restricted them to just 113 runs. Falcons lost opener Akmal for a duck while Waqar Hafeez scored 22 runs while Mehmood and Arsalan knocked 18 and 16 runs respectively in the low scoring innings of their team. For defenders, Faraz was the pick of the bowlers with 4 wickets while Maaz chipped in with 2 wickets and Mudassir, Ghulam and Aamir got a wicket each.

In reply, Defenders who had recently chased a big total of 174 against Hawks only two days back, were out of sorts as their batting crumbled and only two players, Qasim(21) and Ghulam (15) could get to double figures. Ahsan took 3 quick wickets up the order including in form batsmen Faraz and Agha Chow while Amar picked up 2 wickets and Huzaifa, Okasha, Sumair and Waqar got a wicket as Defenders could only get to 104 for 9 in 20 overs. A thrilling low scoring encounter which Falcons won in the end.

Falcons won by 9 runs.
