Unicon beat YTCA by six wickets

Sharjah - Nazim contributed a patient 46-ball 29 while Idrees (18) and Shahzad Altaf (15) made small contributions to ensure YTCA reached a respectable 149 in 37.4 overs.



 Unicon Real Estate secured an easy six-wicket victory over YTCA in the 8th Al Dhaid Gold Cup 40-over Tournament held at the Al Dhaid Cricket Village. The tournament is organised by Sharjah Cricket Council.
Choosing to bat first, YTCA did not have the best of the starts with opener Ali Mirza falling for a mere three runs. That was the start of a fall as wickets kept tumbling at regular intervals. The other opener Fahad Nawaz did not falter as he guarded his wicket at one end to score a crucial 41 from 62 deliveries finding the boundary only on two occasions.
Nazim contributed a patient 46-ball 29 while Idrees (18) and Shahzad Altaf (15) made small contributions to ensure YTCA reached a respectable 149 in 37.4 overs.
Chasing a relatively easier target, Unicon Real Estate had early problems when opener Naseeb Khan was out for a naught. But Sajjad Ahmed and Javed Khan put on a strong 34-run partnership quickly to ensure Unicon were well on track towards the victory line.
