Ibrahim stars in big Parco win

Parco Vs Atlas Pakistan

5th Corporate Cup

Parco batted first and were off to a dream start thanks to their opening pair, Ibrahim Akhtar and Zahid Hussain. They were in sublime form and thrashed the bowlers all around the park during their magnificent partnership. Zahid Hussain played more of a supportive role and rotated the strike nicely during his 26 off 29 balls effort but his partner Ibrahim Akhtar was in no mood to play it safe as he was in tremendous form and dictated terms during his stay at the middle. He smashed 92 off just 45 balls with 4 maximums and 12 fours, it was easily the best innings of the match. He inspired the middle order with his fine hitting and after his dismissal the middle order in Khalil and Danish took advantage of the situation and played quick little cameos as they scored 27 and 28 respectively. In the end, Parco managed to score 186 runs in their 20 overs.

The target was big and Atlas Pakistan wanted a big start but Parco was all over them from the very beginning. Ejaz and Dansih bamboozled the batsmen with their accuracy at the top and picked up 1 wicket each. The wickets fell like a house of cards and every bowler contributing, Ameer Ali was the highest wicket taker picking up 2 wickets for just 24 runs in his 4 over spell. The batting on the other hand, was very disappointing from Atlas Pakistan and only one batsman, Mehmood Ali stood tall against the attack of Parco as he smashed 67 off 43 balls with 7 fours and 2 sixes but his effort went in vain as his partners did not give him any support and in the end Atlas Pakistan fell short by a big margin of 41 runs.

Parco won easily by 41 runs.
