Royal Stars Decimate Tahir XI

BY HADEEL OBAID

Royal Stars and Tahir XI went head to head this past Saturday at Public Ground. Batting first, Royal Stars were off to a decent start with their top order contributing runs to set up a very competitive target. Openers Waleed and Khizar knocked 28 and 16 runs respectively before Faraz and Shaheer turned on the fireworks wirh 39 and a fiery 62 not out. There was little Tahir XI's bowlers could do and a late surge of 30 by Saad Faisal propelled Royal Stars to 198 for 4 in 20 overs. For Tahir XI, Talal took 2 wickets.

In response, Tahir XI had a disastrous day with the bat, losing wickets too frequently to ever gain stability throughout the innings. An unstoppable Shaheer Azim who was having the game of his life took 2 wickets and Sohail also took 2. Tahir XI were restricted to 77 runs.

Royal Stars won by a huge margin of 121 runs.
