T 10 League,Pakhtoons defeated Maratha Arabians

Dubai, November 28, 2018

An explosive batting display by the Pakthoons cheered the crowd in almost every ball when they overcame a 125-run target by losing only two wickets and four balls to spare against the Maratha Arabians in the 18th match of the 2nd season of the T10 League at the Sharjah Cricket Stadium on Wednesday, November 28, 2018.

Colin Ingram hit 42 off 13 balls including five sixes and two boundaries, well supported by Cameron Delport’s 36 of 23 balls that included two fours and two sixes to score the winning run to seal the victory. However, it was Shafiqullah Shafiq who set the stage perfectly for the Pakhtoons with 35 off 16 balls including four sixes to help his teammates go aggressively and hit the winning score.

The match, which was thoroughly enjoyed by a large crowd, cheering for both the teams – showed that competitive score and a good run-chase has its takers in Sharjah.

However the high-score and the high run-chase was possible due to a few dropped catches on both the sides.

Earlier, Maratha Arabians scored 125 losing 6 wickets, partly helped by at least three dropped catches that, had taken, could restrict the Maratha Arabians to a much lower score. Nazibullah Zadran top scored with 36 off 25 deliveries led the charge with three sixes followed by Kamran Akmal’s 25 off 15 balls that included some explosive batting display.

They were well supported by Brendon Taylor who added 23 off 12 balls and Rashid Khan’s 21 off just 7 deliveries that included two sixes and two fours.

With this win, Pakhtoons now lead the point table with eight points from five matches, followed by the newcomers Northern Warriors who scored six points from four encounters. The loss puts Maratha Arabians at the fifth position among the eight teams.

T10 League is the world’s first and currently the only professional ten-over format international cricket league backed by the Emirates Cricket Board (ECB) and sanctioned by the International Cricket Council (ICC), governing body of international cricket.

The 2018 edition scheduled to start from November 21 and spread over 12 days, will have 29 matches as compared to a 4-day event in 2017. To meet this new challenge and also to keep the event clean, the T10 League management has made many positive changes to bolster the execution and operations of the 2018 T10 League tournament.
