Tayyab Tahir fought really hard for his team Central Punjab (CP) but Imran Khan Sr led Khyber Pakhtunkhwa (KPK) to a convincing victory in National T20 Cup.
Khan was on song with his bowling spell that left the CP batters speechless. The lone warrior was Tahir who scored unbeaten 72 runs but wasn’t able to take his team over the victory line. The young batter smashed five boundaries and three sixes.
Set to chase 166 runs in 20 overs, CP’s batting line suffered early blows. Ahmed Shahzad started off well with his 26 off 20 balls but the batting line collapsed completely.
CP were able to score 147-9 in 20 overs. Khan bagged four wickets for 27 runs in his four overs. Asif Afridi and Mohammad Imran Khan took two wickets each.
Earlier, Kamran Ghulam scored 39 runs laced with six boundaries and a maximum to help KPK post 165-6. Muhammad Sarwar scored 30 runs.
For CP, Ali Asfand took two wickets while Ahmed Daniyal, Wahab Riaz, Usama Mir, and Irfan Khan Niazi shared a wicket apiece.
