Played at Victoria Park, pitch 3
Report by Suhail Shahid

This game was played after rain all day but it was a dry outfield. We had Moazzan back and one new player at last minute due to Sheraz being ill.

Rose & Crown won the toss and put OF1 in. Junaid started with two fours followed by a huge six. Going for second six, was caught right on the huge boundary. Najaf joined Bilal and both continued for a well contructed parntership of 70 runs.

Najaf followed from his previous 50 not out to a solid 37 with two great sixes. Bilal made a solid 39 with highest number of fours on a long grass.

Then came the blast innings of 50 not out by Ahmad with three towering sixes at strike rate of 235. Naseer had a quick 15 with huge six over cow corner. Mohit and Moazzam finished on a high note with strike rates overs 200.

It was a great team effort where no strike rate went below 150.

Bowling was started by Ahmed and was rewarded with a wicket off the first over by an excellent catch from Junaid diving low to his right.

Moazzam and Ahmed shared three wickets each. The final wicket (like last week) came from Mohit.

Moazzam and Ahmed generated serious pace. Naseer had only one over with good pace and conceded only three runs. Najaf was tight and hit with flight and angles.

We had two players with three wickets each (Moazzam and Ahmad) and both with one catch on the boundary. But Ahmed was man of the match with a sweet high-intensity 50. Great win and day.

Najaf strikes for his 37
