EFU Bowlers Bamboozle Adamjee Life

BY HADEEL OBAID

EFU General batted first against Adamjee Life Insurance at the Insurance Premier League in a match that was eventually won by the bowlers! 

The team were off to a decent start with opener Intikhab Ahmed taking charge and scoring a valuable half century. Ahmed Nawaz also chipped in with 26 runs however the team faltered after that. The team continued to lose wickets regularly eventually ending at 165 for 6 in 20 overs. Adamjee bowlers Muhammad Taha, Adnan and Faizan were decimated by the batting side being hit for plenty. Obaid Siddiqui picked up 2 wickets for his side but EFU did well to keep the run rate up.

In response, Adamjee Life were completely outdone by a fantastic display of bowling. After losing opener Shehriyar for duck, things continued to fall apart for the chasing side. Hussain Mustafa and Ahmed Nawaz were merciless against the opposition taking a combined 7 wickets. Asif Mirza and Obaid Siddiqui tried to fight back with knocks of 41 and 42 runs respectively but couldn't keep their wickets intact to see their side home. Muhammad Ahmed also picked up a couple of wickets as Adamjee Life were dismissed for 154 runs in 19.4 overs.

EFU General won by 11 runs.
