IQPC win on run-rate

Filed on February 12, 2013

IQPC defeated Tech Talk Lions by a better run rate during a rain marred day in the inaugural Desert Premier League organised by Infoquest under the auspices of the Sharjah Cricket Council at the Skyline University College grounds, a Press release stated.

Put in to bat first, Tech Talk Lions achieved 127 for three in 20 overs. Jawed Ibrahim top scored with a well crafted 51 from only 31 deliveries consisting of seven boundaries and one six. He was well supported by Syed Masih who scored a steady 39 from 49 deliveries with the help of three fours.

In reply, IQPC were in commanding position scoring 48 for no loss in five overs before rain played spoilsport.

Because of their good runrate, IQPC were declared the winners. Merwyn Fernandes, who won the man-of-the-match title, was unbeaten on 30 from only 21 deliveries including six boundaries while Gerard Andrade was 11 not out from nine balls consisting of two boundaries. The other two matches between Fanatics versus Crescent MCC and Deceptions versus Kabul Kunduz Eagles were called off due to persistent rains.
