Summer League starts
Summer League got underway June 20 with the Avengers beating the Tigers by 111 runs, and the Superkings with a narrow win over the Eagles.
The opening day featured some great cricket, despite less than ideal field conditions. In the opener, the Superkings pulled off a narrow two wicket win over the Eagles. Purvi Kalyan took 4/23 in the Eagles innings to earn man of the match honours.
The second match saw two amazing performances both in the Avengers innings. Ayaz showed the virtue of bowling straight, taking 6 wickets for 24 runs, all bowled, but this was overshadowed by man of the match Rahul Vashishtha’s brilliant century, only the third century since cricket resumed on the province five years ago. He made an unbeaten 108 from just 52 balls hitting thirteen sixes. The Superkings ran out winners by 111 runs.
Eagles 94 runs for 9 wickets from 20 overs, Purvi Kalyan, 4/23
Superkings 101/8 from 15 overs
Avengers 193/7 from 20 overs, Rahul Vashishtha 108*, Ayaz Ghani 6/24
Tigers 82 all out, Luftor Rahman 23*
