BY HADEEL OBAID

There's nothing like college rivalries! Insead Panthers went head to head with Lse Beavers at Moin Khan Cricket ground. Batting first, LSE Beavers were off to a solid start with openers Naeem Siddiqui and Ali Allahwala contributing runs. Naeem smashed a fiery 62 off 35 while Ali chipped in with 33. The team lost wickets in intervals but were sure to keep the scoreboard ticking. Munib Puri's cameo of 35 further propelled LSE Beavers to a competitive 181 for 8 in 20 overs. For Insead, Abid Butt and Farees were the key wicket takers with 3 scalps each while Moin also took 2 wickets.

In response, Insead Panthers came out with intent with Jamil Akbar scoring 14 and his partner Zuhair Sikander's 39. However some quick work by Munib Puri dismissed the duo before 2 run outs caused further damage to the chasing side. A late surge of 22 by Obaid tried to salvage the side but Insead Panthers were restricted to 126 for 8 in 20 overs. Munib Puri was the key wicket taker with 3 while Zohaib, Naeem and Saram took a wicket each.

LSE Beavers won by 55 runs.
