Northern Finland Krikketi T20 Cup: NLCA vs KCC

KCC won the toss and elected to field first. NLCA was very cautious at the start of their innings with KCC bowling tight lengths. While trying to pick up the pace at half mark NLCA crumbled to 87/5 in the 13th over. However, a resurgence led by the NLCA’s captain Salman Mian helped in posting a competitive total of 171/10 in 20 overs. The captain fantastic scored a blistering half century with 6 sixes in mere 23 balls and then spearheaded the bowling attack to take a wicket in the very first over. Suresh Raju from KCC showed a little resistance, otherwise tight bowling from Muzamil Ahmed and economical figures from Salman Mian sealed the deal for NLCA. KCC made 116 before they were all out. The win takes NLCA at the top of the table with two matches to play.
