Kamran Akmal helps Lahore Whites on top, Karachi White also prevail

Kamran Akmal Fifty

A ruling 50 years from Kamran Akmal moved Lahore Whites to the highest point of the table as they squashed Rawalpindi by 28 runs. Kamran hit four sixes and seven fours, with 52 of his 65 runs originating from limits, in his rankling 37-ball thump. It came against a Rawalpindi knocking down some pins assault that has seen four of its five bowlers play universally for Pakistan, however Kamran, with able help from Sami Aslam and more youthful sibling Umar Akmal took the Whites to 178.

Rawalpindi were headed toward a forceful begin, with Umar Amin and Zain Abbas helping them keep up a run rate around 10 in the Powerplay. Yet, wickets continued tumbling, and without a player ready to play the kind of thump Kamran had for the Whites, Rawalpindi started to crumple. Before the end, it had for quite some time been an inevitable end product, with the bowlers, Bilal Asif specifically (2 for 20), taking wickets and keeping the hosts well far from a sniff of triumph.

A rapidfire bring down center request association between Pakistan captain Sarfraz Ahmed and Anwar Ali helped Karachi Whites to a tight last finished prevail upon Peshawar in the day’s second diversion. Tottering at 94 for 5, with 62 still to win, in 6 overs, Anwar Ali propelled a rankling assault on Peshawar’s knocking down some pins, crushing 41 off 20 balls. His local and global commander Sarfraz limited himself to a supporting part with 28 off 20 as their side fixed the win with three balls and four wickets to save.

Peshawar would be sharply frustrated not to have put the diversion distant in the primary innings. It unquestionably looked that route in the initial ten overs as they raised the group hundred preceding a large portion of the innings was finished. Openers Rafatullah Mohmand and Israrullah each scored 50, however critically, both were rejected without adding to that number inside five chunks of each other. Whatever remains of the request neglected to keep the force going, and Karachi Whites started to smother them. Zulfiqar Babar and Azam Hussain were efficient and threatening, while even Asad Shafiq trapped two wickets in the same number of overs. At last, Peshawar practically protected the 155 they managed at last, however paid the consequences for not exploiting when they had their adversaries under weight.
