Sublime Bahar, Shahidullah take Knights to final

KABULinfo-icon (Pajhwok): Bahar Shinwari at the top and Shahidullah Kamal at lower order helped Mis-e Ainak Knights reach the final of Shpageeza Cricket League, beating a strong DFI Band-e Amir Dragons side by five wickets here on Tuesday.

In the second qualifier of Etisalat 4G Shpageeza Cricket League semifinal match, the DFI Band-e Amir Dragons opted to bat first after winning the toss and posted 178/8 in the allotted 20 overs game.

Usman Ghani continued his brilliant form in the tournament and made 64 runs while Asghar Afghan and Nasir Jamal scored 23 each and Dawlat Zadran and Shahpur Zadran took two wickets each for the Knights.

In response, the Mis-e Ainak Knights lost Mohammad Shahzad early in the power-play as Sharafuddin Ashraf continued his great form with the ball.

The in-form pair of Bahar Shinwari and Hashmatullah Shahidi put on a stand of 64 runs for the second wicket before Shinwari lost his wicket to Waqar Salamkheil in the 12th over.

The DFI Band-e Amir Dragons made a good comeback taking Shahidi’s wicket in the next over to send both set batsmen back to the pavilion.

However, a sensational knock from left-hand batsman Shahidullah Kamal snatched the game back in Knights’ favor when he put a crucial partnership of 70 runs with Afsar Zazai who complimented him well with a much-needed cameo. The pair ensured the Knights were able to chase the target in the penultimate over to qualify for the final of the tournament.

The Final of Etisalat 4G Shpageeza Cricket League is scheduled to start between the Ayobi Kabul Eagles and Hazrat Ltd. Mis-e Ainak Knights tomorrow at 12 noon.
