د ننګرهار لوبډله له لوبې مخکې (انځور د شمس خليل)

Early in the morning ACB announced that Paktika has proceeded to the Quarter Final for having the highest run rate among the three winning teams of Group B and Nangarhar had to play Laghman to determine the other team for Quarter Final.

After a slight delay early morning, Nangarhar won the toss and elected to bat first. Zamir Khan (who scored the first century of this competition yesterday) opened Nangarhar’s batting today with Javed. Zamir started his batting with a boundary and together with Javed added scored 14 runs in the first 2 overs, but lost his wicket in the third over attempting another boundary. Third batsman Amir Ali and Javed stood on the pitch 17 overs taking to Nangarhar’s score to 94 which has seen some long sixes and excellent fours of Amir Ali. Laghman not only broke the partnership by taking Amir Ali’s wicket, it also bold Javed by next ball in 19th over. Losing 3 wickets for less than 100 was a big blow to Nangarhar knowing it is facing a tough Laghman.

Nanagarhar’s wickets kept falling to Laghman. It lost its 4th wicket in 22nd over when it was 104, but its 6th wicket partnership scored 113 runs taking the score up to 217 in 44th over. Nangarhar could manage to reach 251 all out in 49 overs.

252 was decent target for Laghman and chasing it would require another good inning from them. Laghman had a good start by reaching hundred in 18 overs having 9 wickets in hand. It lost its first wicket in 17th over when its score was 98.

Nangarhar has dropped a catch in the 18th over, but took the second wicket of Laghman in 20th over. Although Laghman has lost its third wicket when its score was 150, but its 4th wicket partnership could take the score up to 190 in 32 overs before it has lost the wicket of Fahim Nasiri.

Laghman lost another three quick wicket, but remained on the track to win the match in the 44th over chasing 252 target.

It was one of the most exiting matches of Etisalat 50-overs domestic tournament.

Laghman will meet Paktika tomorrow in NYCG. Shamshad TV will broadcast the match live and it is expected to be another exciting match as both teams have some high quality players who proved their selves in last 4 days.
