Dangerous Usman Decimates Gondal

BY HADEEL OBAID

Gondal United batted first against Jetpur Strikers at the Memon Cricket League (MCL) and were off to a solid start. Openers Bilal and Saad put up a good front posting 43 and 29 runs respectively to set the foundation for their side. After the pair were dismissed however, the team completely imploded with wickets falling in quick succession. None of the subsequent batsmen were able to effectively contribute with only Shahnawaz Ashraf reaching double digits as Gondal United were dismissed for 123 runs. Jetpur Strikers bowlers were in form and on fire, able to pull back the opposition with captain Usman Ghani, Madni Zubair, Idrees Amin and Ejaz Mundiya taking 2 wickets each. 

In response Jetpur Strikers captain Usman Ghani lead from the front, top scoring for his side with an impressive 41 runs. His blistering knock came off just 16 balls!  Despite losing his partner Adnan Salim cheaply, nothing could deter the chasing side as a determined Salman Moten, Ahmed Moten and Idrees Amin carved a convincing victory for their side in just 8.5 overs. Gondal bowler Hashair Ahmedani picked up 2 wickets but could not stop the onslaught.

Jetpur Strikers won by 6 wickets.
