Kamran Public School whipped Superior Educational Academy by eight wickets in a Group B fixture of the 9th PVCA/EBM Inter-School Cricket Tournament 2018 at the Eastern Star Cricket Ground, Karachi, on October 15.
The tournament, being contested by 32 teams, is being organized by the Pakistan Veterans Cricket Association (PVCA) and sponsored by English Biscuit Manufacturers (EBM), the makers of the famed Peek Freans biscuits.
Superior Educational Academy’s skipper, Zunair Ali Khan, won the toss and decided to bat first but his team was unable to make the most of it and they were bowled out for 92 in 32.1 overs with only opener Shameer Ali (31 off 53 balls) and Usman Mansuri (21 off 30 balls) could enter double figures.
The innings was rocked by the Kamran Public School’s spin trio of Abdullah Ashfaq (3-17), Hasan Jafri (2-13) and Rashid Ghani (2-16).
Set to score 93 in 40 overs, Kamran Public School needed only seven overs to complete the job, losing only a couple of wickets in the bargain.
Captain Hasan Jafri, who opened the innings, led the victory charge as he hammered one six and 10 fours in his whirlwind 52 off 22 balls. He was adjudged Man of the Match after Mouzair Ali Khan had finished the job in style, striking three boundaries in his unbeaten 16 off nine deliveries.
