|Galaxy grab 14 run win over players|
Ankith’s 70 runs set up galaxies score of 175/5 in 20 overs and Kashif and Altaf was gifted 50 runs in the final 5 overs of their batting, as galaxy grabbed a 14 run win over Players.
Coming in after the early dismissal of Asif, Ankith struck three sixes in his innings to take galaxy past 175. Ankith biffing made the crowd delirious as he was always in a position to attack when the bad ball came along. He showed clear, strong and precise footwork and always seemed to be in the right position for any given shot, and even if he was caught slightly off guard, he had the skill to adjust to any variance from the Player bowlers. The excellence of his 70 was also highlighted by the performances of his middle-order colleague Kashif and Altaf who managed to get 50 runs in the last 5 overs.
Players started the chase, with Dada powering a six on the first ball, but they lost 3 quick wickets of Dada, Azam and Amir and stumbled in their chase. Arshad provided a fight back and kept the game alive for Players until the 16th when he was eventually bowled by Safder. Kashif was the expensive bowler and he was smashed for more than 45 runs in his 4 overs.
Galaxy will have to wait for their fate until all the games are completed for the night tournament
When we all play together we win together. GO GALAXY!!!
