June 23: Eagles beat NSK
Updated with video!
It has been a long wait for good cricket weather but the sun finally shone on RCAF field on Saturday, where the closest match of the Summer League to date saw the Eagles defeat the Super Kings in the final over. The Super Kings won the toss and batted first, and Adeel Ilyas continued his good form with a score of 30, opening the innings. Wickets fell at the other end, however, but Shaikh Arifusalam (38) helped NSK bat through the innings for a decent total of 143. Asim took 3/13, Ali Raza 3/25 and Waqas Ali 2/10.
Saeed Khan batted through the Eagles innings making 47 not out and leading his team to victory. He had good support from Mesam Timmar (14), Raheel Zaman (23) and Ali Raza (20). Eight runs were needed from the final over, but despite a run out from the first ball, four wides saw the Eagles home. Ali Raza was named man of the match.
