Skipper Abdullah Khan’s century and Farhan Zaman’s five-wicket haul enabled Oasis English School to hammer Qamar-e-Bani Hashim School by 182 runs in their Group E fixture of the 9th PVCA/EBM Inter-School Cricket Tournament 2018 at the Eastern Star Cricket Ground, Karachi, on October 17. 

A total of 32 schools of Karachi, divided equally in eight groups for the preliminary rounds, are contested the tournament being organized by the Pakistan Veterans Cricket Association (PVCA) and sponsored by English Biscuit Manufacturers (EBM), the makers of Peek Freans. 

Batting first, after calling correctly, Oasis English School posted a formidable total of 287 for six in the allotted 40 overs which was largely made possible by Abdullah Khan (115 off 102) and Sharjeel Ahmed (85 off 60 balls) who added 140 for the second wicket. 

Anis Moghul’s unbeaten 39 off 42 ensured that Oasis English School played out their full quota of overs, after being shaken by off-spinner Faris Hussain who captured three wickets in quick succession. 

Chasing a target of 288 in 40 overs, Qamar-e-Bani Hashim School struggled from the outset after losing wickets upfront. Even Kazim Hussain’s 35 off 36 balls could not revive their hopes as they were bundled out for 145 in 20.3 overs. 

Left-arm spinner Farhan Zaman wrecked the innings with the figures of five for 39 but Man of the Match award was clinched by his captain Abdullah Khan for his century.
