The National T20 Cup is in full swing at the Iqbal Stadium in Faisalabad. In a rain-affected encounter, Northern triumphed over KPK to register an important victory in the tournament. In reply to KPK’s target of 134 in 16 overs, Northern decided to try Ali Imran along with Umar Amin to open the innings.
Ali was playing just his 2nd match of the tournament but he didn’t disappoint anyone. Amin on the other hand, played some delightful strokes towards all parts of the ground.
Ali Imran smacked three long sixes in his aggressive innings of 34 off 23. Umar Amin scored 39 off 28 with 6 fours. Together, they were involved in a partnership of 72 runs in just 8 overs.
The target was revised once again after rain interrupted and Northern won the match by 7 wickets (DL method). However, the 72 run partnership between Ali and Amin was the turning point for Northern.
