An excellent outing for Khaleej Times players, they controlled all departments of the game, the field placement was set precisely, they had DBMSC in the defense from the very 1st over. Each time the batsmen went aggressive, they lost wickets immediately, by the end of 5th over, the score was 26 runs for 4 wickets.
Sajid was the only batsmen who managed to keep scoring runs by taking singles & doubles to keep the score ticking, his innings of 16 runs and staying not out till the end helped DBMSC to end of their innings at 50 runs. The 2 run outs at the end of the innings didn’t help DBMSC to score a bigger total.
Chasing 51 to win, Ram got out early on but the onslaught of Tharindu was spectacular, he hit 3 towering sixes followed by couple of fours. His blistering innings of 32 runs came off just 11 balls.
Once retired out, the later batsmen ensured the game was over by the 4th over for loss of just 1 wicket; they hit regular shots without any risks.
