BY TAIMUR

Final: VMA Suleman Textile vs ZMCC on 19 November 2017 

VMA Suleman Textile defeated ZMCC in a closely fought battle fitting for a final of a highly competitive tournament.

Batting first ZMCC batsman got off to starts but were not able to convert them into big scores leaving most of the responsibility on the shoulders of Haider Ali Bangash (70) who anchored the innings playing in an aggressive fashion.  

With limited support from the other end ZMCC ended their innings at 147/8 in 20 overs, which was a competitive total especially with the pressure of a final. 

VMA Suleman Textile in reply got off to a good start thanks to their opener Fahad Jabbar scoring a game changing 51 off just 22 balls along with Rameez Mehboob (22). A quick flurry of wickets (mostly run outs) did make the dressing room tense but in the end Shahid Ali with a calm 26 ensure they got home to clinch the 17th Challengers Final by 3 wickets. Zeeshan Momia was the pick of the bowlers taking 3 wickets for 23 runs.
