Panthers Have a Narrow Victory Over Cocoon.

BY SAMEED MOHSIN

Cocoon home batted first against Benitoz Panthers in a super-exciting and thrilling contest of legends cup. Ameer Raza Khan gave a passable start to his team and scored 27 runs. But it was Maeez Waqar’s 45 and Asif Yaqoob’s 41 runs knock which allowed Cocoon Home to set a conventional target. Panthers bowlers did their job well to limit the opposition to a score which was quite chasable. Danish Ali picked up 3 wickets while Idrees and Hamza bagged 2 wickets each. Cocoon Home made 160 runs in 20 overs at the cost of 9 of their batsmen.

With the required run rate of around 8 rpo, Panthers had a colourful and accelerated start. A number of small but propelling contributions did it for the Panthers. Tabish Raza’s 32 and Hamza Qadir’s 29 were the most prominent figures in the second innings. Cocoon bowlers did a tremendous job and kept the match unpredictable till the last delivery but it was one of their bad days. Asif Yaqoob’s 2 and Hasan Shahab’s 3 wickets helped Cocoon to drag the match to the last delivery.

Benitoz Panthers won the match by 2 wickets with no deliveries to spare.
