Fakhri Falcons Open With a Victory

BY HADEEL OBAID

The opening match of the Bohra t20 Champions League kicked off this past Sunday. Batting first, Hyderi Blasters could not have been off to a worse start after losing opener Ali Asghar for duck. Things did not get any better after that with the batting side being dismissed cheaply with the exception of Mustafa Quaid, Hussain Badruddin and Hussain Ali Asghar who chipped in with knocks of 15, 14 and 12 respectively to put some runs on the board. The team were dismissed for 116 in 19.3 over. For Fakhri Falcons, Mustafa Hasnain lead the bowling attack with 3 wickets while Burhanuddin and Ali Asghar Khamosi picked up 2 wickets each to rattle the opposition.

In response, Fakhri Falcons were off to a solid start with opener Ali Asghar Khamosi knocking a match winning 34 not out. The team however kept losing wickets before Hussain Ratlam also stepped up with his cameo of 26 runs. Eventually, a late surge of 12 by Abbas Gohar saw his side chase down the target in 16.5 overs. Hyderi Blasters required an extraordinary display of bowling to defend their side's total and despite Hatim Khuzaima's valiant effort of 3 wickets, he was unable to get this team over the line. Hussain Zohaib also contributed with 2 wickets while Mustafa Quaid and Saifuddin picked up a wicket each.

Fakhri Falcons won by 3 wickets.
