TNP Titans won by 24 runs
- Fareed Fireworks Sets Up TNP Titans Victory
TNP Titans batted first against Downtown Strikers at the knockout rounds of the MSL Season 6. Arsalan Amin and Shahriyar Shahid got their side of to a cracking start scoring 36 and 24 respectively. TNP’s intent showed throughout the innings when despite losing a few wickets, Number 5 Fareed Shah Arbab stepped up to steal the show. Fareed was outstanding in his knock of 66 with 3 boundaries and 4 mammoth sixes. Strikers bowlers were unable to keep things tight with Sameer Ahmedani proving to be too expensive in his spell of 1 for 51 in 4 overs. Ali Ammar and Adeel Abbasi took 2 wickets each but the momentum was always with the batting side who ended at 198 for 6 in 20 overs.
The chase was always going to be tough for Downtown Strikers with scoreboard pressure hitting from the first ball. Opener Ibrahim Sardar lost his wicket early on for just 5 runs and with that, the team continued to falter, losing wickets regularly with a sprinkling of cameos. Adeel Abbasi tried to keep his side in the game but was unfortunately run out by Fareed Arbab at 33. It was Usman Ghani however who fought to give his side some semblance of a chance with a valiant 51 off 35 which included 6 sixes. Adnan Ghazi was the standout bowler for his side with 3 wickets for 25 in his spell. Titans eventually fell short ending at 174 for 8 in 20 overs.
A great effort by both sides with TNP Titans winning by 24 runs.
