Northern romped to victory in a one-sided affair in the National T20 Cup final against Balochistan. Northern rode on the brilliant contribution from opening batsman Umar Amin to defeat the Haris Sohail-led Balochistan by a massive margin of 52 runs.
Amin put forth a batting masterclass in the jam-packed Iqbal Stadium as he smashed 68 runs off 38 deliveries to lift his side’s total to a competitive score. The left-handed batsman unleashed blistering strokes that saw him rack up six boundaries and three maximums.
Dishing out a wide range of strokes, Amin’s batting charge helped Northern post 167-5 in their allotted 20 overs before the bowlers gave a clinical performance and bundled out the opposition for just 115. In recognition of his heroics with the bat, Amin was given the man of the match award.
