Ghazi Amanullah Khan Regional One Day Tournament

Postby The Professor » Tue Sep 10, 2019 9:42 pm

Kicked off the third edition today with Amo beating Band-e-Amir.

One of the rising stars of Afghan cricket was the stars for today despite the fact he was on the losing side.

Darwish Rasooli was the only player to score over 30 as he got to a 56 ball 55 but was let down by the rest of the team - with 7 getting out in single figures.

Rasooli was in fine form last year and was called up to the Afghanistan A team for a tour of Bangladesh but was a disappointment. He will hope to rekindle his chances of being the next young Afghanistan prodigy in this tournament.

Tomorrow Mis Ainkak plays Spin Ghar

Runs were flowing today as three batsmen scored centuries. Inevitably it was Speen-Ghar - the side that scored two of them - that prevailed.

Captain Nasir Khan's 105 was the highest score as SG overtook Mis Ainak's total of 277 with three overs to spare.

Yousuf Zazai, once a star at Under 19 level, burst his way back into the public consciousness with 5-29 as he helped limit Boost to 213 as they chased Mis Ainak's 243.

Boost were unbeaten in the competition up until now whilst this was Mis Ainak's second win.

Final of this tomorrow as Mis Ainak play Boost.

Boost qualified first with Mis Ainak having to beat Amo today.

Another teenage Afghan bowler caught the eye with 19 year old Shamsurrahman getting 4-34 and knocking off Amo for 169, a long way short of the target of 206.
