The Qalandars made a flying start to their Abu Dhabi T10 campaign with an impressive nine-wicket victory over Pune Devils at the Zayed Cricket Stadium on Friday.

After being put into bat, the Pune Devils made 107 for two in 10 overs with England player Tom Kohler-Cadmore top-scoring with 54 off 28 balls.

Darwish Rasooli, the 21-year-old Afghanistan player, also chipped in with a valuable 39 not out off 24 balls.

But their fine batting efforts were not enough to give Pune Devils their second straight win in the tournament as the Qalandars chased down the target in just 7.1 overs, losing only one wicket.

England’s rising white-ball star Tom Banton set the tone for the Qalandars with an 18-ball 45.

Pakistan opener Sharjeel Khan remained not out on 28 off 13 balls and captain Sohail Akhtar made an unbeaten 33 off 13 balls as the Qalandars earned their first points in the tournament.
