CAA Win by 17 Runs

BY HADEEL OBAID

Lucky Knits and Civil Aviation Authority went head to head at KCCA this past Saturday. Batting first, CAA's opening pair Irfan and Kamran got their team off to a good start, contributing 21 and 26 runs. One down Atta Muhammad then took things a step further with a scintillating knock of 51 which included 4 boundaries and 2 sixes. With the top order setting the foundation, minor cameos by Asif Khan and Farzand of 21 and 19 further boosted CAA to a very competitive 167 for 7 in 20 overs. For Lucky, Waqar Ahmed struck with the ball, taking 3 wickets in his spell while Naeem, Amir and Hamid also chipped in with a wicket.

In response Lucky Knits lost opener Siraj for just 2 runs but the team recovered well. While his partner Fawad knocked 24, it was really one down batsman Asif who shined. His exquisite knock of 88 included 9 boundaries and a six and seemed to be the innings Lucky needed but the team kept losing wickets constantly. 3 quick wickets and Asif's eventual dismissal and the team found themselves struggling to chase down the target. Shabi tried with 10 runs but Lucky Knits were limited to 150 for 7 in 20 overs. Nazir took 2 wickets for CAA.

Civil Aviation Authority won by 17 runs.
