On Saturday, Creative Chaos played the first semi final of the 8th Challengers Corporate cup, against 10Pearls and won! 10Pearls won the toss and decided to bat first, giving Creative Chaos a target of 188 to chase. Opener Sheraz Siddique was impressive with his knock of 79 and despite his partner Ajdal being dismissed cheaply, one down M.Ali kept the scoreboard ticking with his 42 run innings. Yasir Tanveer and Zohaib Baig kept the momentum going with contributions of 33 and 15 respectively. For Creative Chaos, Anas Ahmed took 2 wickets while Sharjeel got a wicket.
In response, Creative Chaos started unsteady and things looked gloomy as they were 54/5 at one point in time. But then the unexpected happened and their star Skipper Kamran Shahid took one end of the crease, while the others kept coming and going, he paired up for small but solid partnerships with the incoming batsmen and on the last ball of the last over he scored the two remaining runs required for Creative Chaos to qualify! When things looked impossible, with 14 runs required off the last over, Kamran Shahid came through with his 64 not out off 40 balls. Heart break for Ten Pearls who played with heart with Asad Ullah, Fawwad and Zohaib picking up 2 wickets each for their side.
Creative Chaos won by 2 wickets and are through to the finals.
