Dubai: Farhan Baber’s timely knock led Calicut Zamorins Farooq CC to a five-wicket victory over Capital Kochi Diwans in a Kerala Premier League match at the ICC Cricket Academy ground in Dubai, a Press release said.

Baber hit a 42-ball 43 with the help of three fours and one six and helped his team Calicut achieve the target of 129 in 19.2 overs.

After both of them fell later, Nashwan Nasir hit an unbeaten knock of 11 from 14 balls with one hit to the fence, while Fahad Al Hashmi remained not out on one.

Chandrasekhara gave a good start to Kochi by taking the wickets of openers but Baber’s innings made the difference in the match. Chandrasekhara finished with 2-20 from his four overs, while Ramesh Chinnan took 2-21 from his four overs. Shiraz also bowled well by taking one wicket for 19 runs from four overs. An all-round performance from Salman Babar led Dunes Cusine Kannur Veerans to a 41-run victory over Seven Seas Trivandrum Royals at the ICC Academy grounds in Dubai. Babar first hit a fine half century and powered Kannur to a good total of 188 for seven in 20 overs and then picked up one wicket to restrict Trivandrum to 147 for five in their full quota of over.

Babar faced 42 balls to hit 72 with the help of four boundaries and four sixes. Kannur, who lost the toss and batted first, lost their openers quickly.

While opener Prasanth Braggs fell after making a 14-ball 20 with three fours, Irfan Ahmed was dismissed for a golden duck. However, the next batsman, Hafiz Kalim, steadied the innings with 38 off 24 balls with two hits to the fence and two sixes.
