Avengers clinch league title with win over Eagles
The Avengers clinched the league title with two matches still to play with a 23 run over the Eagles in a high scoring match. The Avengers made 209/2, thanks to a third century of the season from Rahul Vashishtha – an unbeaten 122 from 69 balls with 5 fours and eleven sixes. He received good support from Gurman Khurana with 53 not out from 33 balls.
The Eagles’ chase started well with Mohammed Asim (43) and Raza Riaz (36) putting together an opening partnership of 85. Raheel Zaman (53 from 27 balls) kept the Eagles in contention. Good mid-overs spells from Saravana Kumar and Praveen Manhas and strong fielding resulting in four run outs saw the Eagles fall short. The Avengers have now won every match of the season, and have a 4 point lead over the Eagles, who only have one match to play.
