After a disappointing last week game, vvv2 captain Zeddy (Zahid Malik ) decided to bat first on a good batting track to put good total on the board for R&W to chase. It was a game of experiments. Zeddy and Saqib combination as openers was the first one. The first wicket fell after a steady start: 27/1 after 8. From there on Zishan Yousaf joined Saqib Choudhry in the middle and took their time to settle by rotating strikes. They built up a good partniship of 100 runs with some very good boundaries shared between them.
With 130 on the board after 29 overs, things were looking good for an 200+ total. After a mini collapse Omar Raja and Tayyeb both made sure we batted out our overs. In the end a respectable 197 was on the board.
Omar Raja and Zishan Yusuf opened the bowling. Both R&W openers went on the attack resulting in a bowling change. Zeeshan Choudhry was put into the attack striking on his very first ball, the score read: 37/1 after 7.
For the next 15 overs wickets were hard to come by, but the scoring rate was kept in check. Saqib Iqbal and Usman Yusuf were brought on as spinners and both bowled really well that resulted in wickets. Saqib Iqbal took 4 wickets in his 9 over spell.
With R&W on 120 for 8 Juned Iqbal was brought into the attack and finished of the tail quickly: 123 all out.
Saqib Iqbal 9-0-24-4
Zeeshan Choudhry 5-1-12-1
Juned Iqbal 1.1-0-1-2
Usman Yusuf 6-0-16-1
