Having lost the toss, Sky were unsurprised to be given the new ball,
however the two Sky players who do enjoy the pristine pink cherry are
opening bowlers Rizwan Siddiqui and Waqar Ali. Both settled quickly into
rhythm and ensured that the New Boys could not get away to a quick start.
Wickets fell regularly, including two run outs via long distance direct
hits, due to the relentless pressure exerted by the Sky bowling and fielding
unit with Aleem Hussain bowling a particularly fine spell at the death. New
boys struggled to find the boundary and could only manage 104-6 in their
allotted 16 overs.
Debutant Sky opener Kaifi Khan proved his credentials with a controlled,
unbeaten 41 and was aided by Aleem Hussain and Hassan Ali in chasing down
the total without too much drama within 12 overs.
