Abu Dhabi — Alubond Tigers notched up their second win to head Group B in the Ace-Pan Global Group Ramadan Twenty20 Cup at the Zayed Cricket Stadium.

They got the better of Interface by 58 runs for their second win in two games and emerged as favourites to qualify from a group that also include Adnoc, Al Fahim, and Emirates Cricket Board Greens, whom they shot out for 17 all out.

Sent into bat, Alubond posted 193 for three with opener Waqas Ahmed laying the platform with a breezy 66.

Waqas’ 42-ball knock consisted of five sixes and three fours, and Zakir Malik, the one-drop batsman smashed 45 not out from 21 balls for Alubond to put up the tournament’s highest total so far.

Samiullah Niaze and Sultan Ahmed, following up his five-wicket haul in the first game, then took six wickets between them to skittle out Interface for 135.

The Lions made a bright start to their campaign in Group A, emerging winners by 45 runs over Abu Dhabi Airport Company.

New Medical Centre recorded their first win in three games to keep their slim hopes alive in Group C.

Punjab Lions overcame Environment Agency 40 runs as they too bounced back to record their first win in two games in Group D.
