(MENAFN - Khaleej Times) Middle-order batsman laghari blasted a 41-ball 74 with six fours and five sixes to propel phoenix to a total of 238.

shoaib laghari was the star performer with bat and ball as phoenix medicines romped to a comprehensive 74-run win over interface transworld in the chairman’s cup 30-overs-a-side cricket tournament played at the fairground of the dubai men’s college. the tournament is held under the auspices of the dubai cricket council (dcc).

middle-order batsman laghari blasted a 41-ball 74 with six fours and five sixes to propel phoenix to a total of 238. he then returned to take two wickets to be adjudged man of the match as interface were bowled out for 164.

laghari came to the wicket after all top four phoenix batsmen gave the team a solid foundation by getting into double figures. the no. 5 batsman just took it from there to another level with some lusty hitting.

at first phoenix looked like getting 200 but laghari turned the match on its head as he went hell for leather clearing the boundary with ease. when he finally departed on 74 phoenix were comfortably placed at 238 for 8 from their 30 overs.

interface’s reply was poor to say the least. barring a few players who got into double figures and a late cameo from fawad ghafoor (27 from 28 balls) they were never in the match.

bilal shah began the rout removing both interface openers. asif mumtaz did more damage by bagging two wickets in the middle while laghari capped a fine day for himself by claiming two lower down batsmen to complete the formalities.

in another match rana dastageer and rohil ali shared the spoils by bagging four wickets each as danube tigers overwhelmed farooq cc by nine wickets.

batting first on winning the toss farooq could muster only 105 runs on the board and that was mainly due to nabeel iqbal’s 39 as some brilliant bowling from dastageer (4/24) and man of the match ali (4/12) left the other batsmen fishing for the ball.

in reply rohan mustafa missed his half century by a run and sami ullah (35) gave the tigers a perfect start in their chase while adnan mufti (24 not out) hung in there as the team cruised home in 14.1 overs.
