|Safder Syed (48 runs & 2 wkts) and Altaf Khadry (4 wkts) shines in an opener, as Galaxy United routed Badshahs by 5 wickets|
Great Job! Getting the first win on the first game of the season. It all started with most of us reaching the ground before 8.00 AM, and then making the collective decision to field first.
BadSHAHS started with a bang, but our cool composure got us the first breakthrough, and then Mukram, Safder and Altaf not only put a great show of excellent bowling with great line and length, but also got the wickets at frequent intervals. Safder was exceptionally great, giving the batsmen a great deal of trouble and unrest; he was unlucky with a few dropped catches. The BADshahs were eventually all-out at 118 in 23 overs.
The Galaxians opener Asif and Safder started the chase with a great zeal and patience. They were never undermined with the constant efforts from the BADshahs to annoy our composed batsmen but in vain. Both were scoring runs at will at steady rate, demoralizing the opponents. Safder and Asif scored 48 and 30 respectively and Galaxians won the game in 20 overs with the loss of 4 wickets. Excellent support provided by Anwar and Maqsood.
More interestingly BADshahas could not do much other than playing mind games and sledging our batsmen, but not only Galaxians replied with patience but also gave BadShahs a taste of their own medicine. In the end, Galaxians beat Badshahs in the every aspect of the game, including in their own mind games.
When we all play together we win together. GO GALAXY!!!
