The National T20 Cup is providing a lot of opportunities to the young cricketers of the country as it brings them shoulder to shoulder with some of the top class players of Pakistan.
The U-19 batting sensation Saif Badar, who impressed everyone with his belligerent batting in the U-19 World Cup in 2016 played a wonderful match-winning knock for Southern Punjab against KPK. In reply to KPK’s 154, Southern Punjab lost 5 wickets inside 10 overs and they could only score 50 runs.
At 50-5, it was almost looking impossible for Southern Punjab to recover but Saif Badar stood like a rock against the strong bowling line-up of KPK and played some risk-free cricket to ensure his team gets going. Badar finished at 49* off 35 with 4 fours and a Six.
Saif Badar was involved in a brisk partnership with Wahab Riaz who scored 42 off 17 to completely kill the hopes of the KPK bowlers.
