Match Report

Last game of the day was between Lahore Tigers and Punjabi Lions with the Tigers looking for a win which would take them back up to the top of the league table. Nabeel Ahmad, captain of the Punjabi Lions won the toss, and as the trend has been for season, decided to bowl first.  The Tigers had a great start and started building the innings with good partnerships one after another. By the end of the 20th over, the Tigers had a huge total of 196 runs with the 3rd partnership between Sajjad Butt and Sajjad Hussain being the highest with 50 runs. 

Sajjad Hussain played the highest individual innings of 30 and Nomi Aslam had the best bowling figures of 2 for -3. The highlight of this innings came when Asif Butt of Lahore Tigers hit a straight drive which looked like a 6 as soon as it left the bat, only to hit the hand of a fully stretched, jumping Nomi Aslam on the boundary wall who took an amazingly timed catch to the cheers and claps of the crowd, including players of the Lahore Tigers team which was good to see as this league is built around good sportsmanship.

In response to chasing a mammoth total like this, the Punjabi Lions needed a very good start. The first partnership scored 33 off their 4 overs giving the Lions a platform to build on. What came next was a disaster. The 2nd partnership consisting of Waqas Kayani and Faisal Rehman used their 4 overs to score a horrific minus 18 runs to bring the Lions total back down to 15 runs from 8 overs. This was due to some great bowling and fielding by the Tigers. The required run-rate after the 2nd partnership was sky high and the Lions needed nothing less than a miracle to chase this score down. What didn’t help the cause was the 4th partnership which put together only 9 runs. 

The Lions ended up with 105 runs with Nabeel Ahmad being the highest scorer with 22 and Asim Raja had the best bowling figures of 4 for -11.  This win put the Tigers back in the top spot of the table with only a better net run-rate separating Lahore Tigers and Big Bite. The highlight of this innings was another astonishing catch. This time it was Zeeshan Butt of Lahore Tigers who held on to a backward diving catch with both feet in the air while the ball travelled down at pace after hitting the ceiling with a brutally powered shot played by the batsman. The catch left the crowd stunned and excited as Zesshan Butt’s catch eclipsed the earlier one taken by Nomi Aslam. Although they were both extraordinary catches, for me, the catch of the tournament has to be the one taken by Zeeshan Butt.
