Viper XI Take Home The Cup

Viper XI Vs Chiniot United

Khas & Viper- Final

Viper XI batted first and were off to a reasonable start as their openers Waqas and Shaukat batted cautiously and formed a good little partnership at the top. Waqas was the aggressor of the two as he scored at a strike rate of 145, he managed to score 16 off 11 and his partner was a bit slow but gave him good company as he scored 23 off 25 with 2 fours. Once the openers were dismissed, Osama came in and played a brilliant knock, he was supported by Abuzar who scored 25 of just 14 balls and on the other hand, Osama scored 50 of 40 balls with 3 fours. The partnership put Viper at a very strong position and little cameos down the order from Saqib and Mubasir took the score to 164. The bowling was also good in patches but the leader of the attack was Musaddiq who picked up 3 wickets whereas Dawood picked up 2.

Chiniot United in response were off to a top start as their openers announced themselves with great fighting knocks. The openers shut the opposition with fine hitting and in between rotated the strike intelligently. The bowlers were clueless against them and they did not have any answers to what turned out to be a top partnership. Imran scored 48 of 38 balls with 4 fours and 1 six whereas Khurram scored 47 of 34 balls. But even after a big opening partnership, Viper XI did not give up and they kept believing in themselves and as they say cricket is a funny game because what followed the opening partnership was a complete disaster for Chiniot. The rest of the wickets fell like a house of cards. The fightback was led by Shiraz Anwer who picked up 2 wickets and he was supported by Faraz and Mubashir who also picked up 2 wickets each. Chiniot United were limited to 148 in 20 overs. 

Viper XI won by 16 runs and took home the cup.
