Axact Defeat K Town In Thriller

BY HADEEL OBAID

Axact Inc and K Town Cricket Club went head to head in a match that went down to the wire. Axact batted first with opener Muhammad Ahsan Farooq turning up for his side with an impressive knock of 59 runs. Azeem Shamsi and Asim Shafiq further contributed with scores 33 and 43 runs respectively to keep the scoreboard ticking. K Town bowler Shoaib was handy with the ball, picking up 3 wickets in his spell. Fahad Nazir also took a couple as Axact Inc eventually ended at 188 for 7 in 20 overs.

In response, K Town were off to a disastrous start after losing opener Irfan on the very first ball of the chase for duck. The team however did well to keep the runs flowing and despite losing wickets in regular intervals, they always had the target in mind. Saad Khan's 34 and Shoaib's 30 were the most notable batsmen with the others knocking cameos in their twenties. Mudassir Lakhanis' fiery 24 off 17 almost had his side home but an expected run out of Khubaib Munir and some intelligent bowling by Axact had K Town fall short of the target by just 1 run. Ghayas and Hasan took 2 wickets each.

Axact won by 1 run.
