BY KHELO KRICKET

To start of the round up of the 3rd week of the MSL Season 4, the Wintex Strikers beat the TNP Titans by eight wickets. The Titans had a poor showing and only managed to make 108 runs in 20 overs. The most impressive performance was Farhan Arif's 24 from 18. Ahmed Hussain led the wicket taking in this innings by taking three wickets. The Strikers quickly chased the target inside 18 overs. Once again Ahmed Hussain shined by making 57 from 41 to give his team the victory. 

In the second match, Classic Garments beat ArchiHomes Patriots by 18 runs. The Garments batted first and an outstanding performance from Kamil Mehmood (58 from 51) helped them make an impressive 159 runs in 20 overs. Hassan Mehmood took three wickets. The Patriots seemed to be doing well as Adeel Khan made 37 from 16 and Aamir Motiwala made 40 from 42. Unfortunately, they fell victim to the aggressive bowling. Shahid Nepal took three wickets while Hamza Shahnawaz and Mirza Shoaib took two each.

In the third bout, Wintex beat Benitoz by 38 runs. 62 from 56 by Zeeshan Haider and 28 from 18 by Hammad Shaikhani helped the total reach 134 for the loss of eight wickets. Mohib Ahsen took three wickets. Benitoz simply had no answer to the bowling of Wintex and apart from Madni Waqas Raja (35 from 34) the rest of the team was of no help. Ahmed Hussain and Hammad Shaikhani took a combined six wickets each.

In the final match, Rims Lion won over Gigi Gladiators. The Gladiators won the toss and chose to bat. After making an impressive total of 159 thanks to 47 from 38 by Rehan Tanoli and 54 from 43 by Owais Rehmani, the Gladiators were hopeful that they would pick up the win. Rims Lion, however, came back in a major way with back to back smashing knocks to pick up the win. Umair Yusuf made 63 from 36 and Afnan Karim made 54 from 48.
