Dynamite DUCK'S FLY away with the CUPS!!

Ducks were put into bat in this sizzling cup final between two of the most Destructive teams in the league, both deservedly finalists as predicted.

Helmets off to these soldiers, in the end Ducks managed a defendable total.

As the Ducks "HIT SQUAD" took to battlefield for the last time this season, the soldiers took to their field positions to protect their assigned territories like a pack of hungry lions.

Opening attack bowlers Sibet the "Ilford Express", started exploding with deadly bouncers, the ball was flying pass the openers like a bullet, his varied paced attack shook the Cally's openers helped by Tanveer who kept the run rate to a minimum, the boundaries dried up for this Cally's normally dangerous batting attack.

As the mid-order bowlers Aleem Dar, and the "Bomb" Ahmed blew away the Cally's top order, ahmed again picking up the vital wickets. the job was finished by the death bowlers, Amir taking 2 for 2.
