Epic Thriller Results in Victory by 1 Run.

BY HADEEL OBAID

Folio3 batted first against Avanza CC in an epic contest that went down to the wire. Opener Aneeq Hashmi carried his side with a brilliant knock of 89 not out. Minor cameos by Shahab Uddin of 22 and Zeeshan Ashraf's 14 boosted Folio3 to a competitive 176 in 20 overs. Avanza's bowlers were weak against the opposition, unable to make the breakthroughs when needed.

In response, Avanza's innings were a treat to watch with many highs and lows. Opener Sajid was dismissed cheaply for just 5 runs and Adnan Hussain's 21 and Umer's 29 provided the side with hope before Folio3's bowlers struck, picking up a flurry of quick wickets. Irfan Khan truly shined for side with a valuable 48 not out and Talha's explosive 30 off just 12 balls pulled Avanza closer to the target. The team looked like they were going to make it but somehow Folio's bowlers stole the game away. Fahad, Mobeen and Ahmed took 2 wickets each as Folio3 fell short just 1 run.

Folio3 clinched victory in one of the most exciting matches KheloKricket as witnessed recently!
