Jibrail Blitz Takes Pyramid To Victory

BY HADEEL OBAID

The grand final of the FAW FOAP Tournament took place between Al Haj FAW CC and Pyramid Logistics.

Al Haj batted first with their openers contributing cameos in their twenties. The team had come together well as a unit with each batsmen knocking runs to keep the scoreboard ticking. Waqar Shinwari, the in-form batsmen- knocked 26 runs and top scored for his side as Al Haj FAW posted a competitive 113 for 5 in 8 overs. Pyramid bowlers made in roads in regular intervals with Abdul Malik taking 2 wickets.

In response, Pyramid's star player Jibrail could simply not be defeated. His determined 77 off 23 balls at an unbelievable strike rate of over 300% was the game changer. There was little the rest of the side needed to do as Pyramid Logistics comfortably chased down the target in 7.2 overs. Al Haj bowlers continued to take wickets but in vain.

Pyramid Logistics won by 6 wickets and were crowned champions of the FAW FOAP Tournament.
