Shpageeza 2020: Zadran, Shahidi star for Sharks massive triumph
Mis-e-Ainak Knights registered a comprehensive 131 run win over Amo Sharks in the Shpageeza T20 Cricket League at the Kabul International Cricket Stadium on Saturday evening.
After opting to field, Sharks struck early to reduce Knights to 17 for two. A 88-run third wicket stand between Bahar Shinwari (57: 32b, 5x4, 4x6) and Hashmatullah Shahidi (82 n.o,: 52b, 7x4, 4x6) revived Knights' innings.
It was Shahidi's blitzkrieg which catapulted Knights to 193 for five from their 20 overs. Only Fareed Ahmed (2-13) managed to control the scoring rate for Sharks.
The chase for Sharks never really took off as they lost wickets at regular intervals. The result was that Sharks was shot out for a mere 62 off 12 overs as Knights won by a massive margin.
The best bowler for Knights was Dawlat Zadran (5-9). He was well supported by Noor Ahmad (2-21).
