Update by Arslan Zahid Piprani (yea, he’s a cool dude)
The Preston Institute organized the inter private uni tournament which was played at UBL Sports Complex. The match b/w TIP and KIIt was played on 21st of Aug. TIP did not play that match with the full strength side b/c 2 to 3 players could not come 2 play that match. The match started 1/2 an hour late due to light rain. KIIT won the toss and elected to bat first. The skipper Hassan took 2 early wickets but his team could not shown the same momentum as it was early in the match. At one moment it looked that they easily scored a massive total of 300 run in the allotted 35 overs but it was Arafat who took 3 quick wickets to turn the match and in the end KIIT all out at 213 runs in 28 overs.
In reply TiP had a bad start. They also lost couple of quick wickets. But the real star of that day was Salman who hit 75 runs. he had shown great deal of committment and patience. He and his partner Faraz managed to get 60 odd runs for the 6th wicket partnership. But after Salman got out, the other
batsmen did not show the same patience as Salman and Faraz did and the team all out at 167 runs and lost the match by 46 runs.
Although the team lost the match but it was heartning to see that our team has shown real committment and zeal to win that that match and at the same time it was dissappointing to see that not much students were there to motivate or support our team.
We hope that ourteam will do better in the upcoming tournaments.
