BY HADEEL OBAID

The team lost a few quick wickets before Ammar Iqbal stepped up with a blistering 49 off 45 balls. He was unlucky to have been bowled out by Noman Saleem before reachng his half century. M Zubair also knocked 37 runs as NGHK posted a competitive target of 164 in 20 overs. Wintex Strikers kept the opposition subdued for the most part with Adnan Ghazi taking 2 wickets and Noman and Adeel picking up a wicket each.
