Tawheed got back to winnings ways after a poor recent run was finally reversed with a comprehensive and comfortably victory over a talented and keen New Boys outfit.

Having already disposed of Sky and London Tigers this season, New Boys were looking for another scalp to add to their collection.

Going into this game the form book pointed to an even contest especially as both sides came into this game with 3 defeats in their last three games respectively.

As the Holy month of Ramadan was being observed by both sides, it was decided to reduce the fixture to 12 overs a side.

Tawheed claimed the toss as New Boys were unable to meet the official 6.30 cut off with the required no of players to proceed. Tawheed elected to bat first and started brightly.

With only 7 fielders to combat the Tawheed batsmen exploited the vast charred
grasslands of Pitch 3. Arshad was especially in fine form finding the boundary throughout his blistering 50, he was backed up through his innings by his compatriots Nadeem Ibrar and Yasser.

With a healthy and above par target of 159 in 12 overs, Tawheed knew New Boys would have to come up with something special to surpass the required run rate of over 13 an over.

Tawheed did some early experiments with the bowling, opening with Debutant Ishtiaq and the enigmatic Mohammed Ali. Both did not disappoint and got early breakthroughs getting rid of the New Boys openers cheaply.

The New Boys’ middle order made their intentions known with a flurry of boundaries in the middle overs but left themselves too much to do in the later overs. Although New Boys kept up with the run rate through to the 10th over, they were losing wickets regularly and could not quite finish the job off.

Well done to Ash and Ibrar and Yasser's 3 over cameo for some entertaining batting. Lets hope we can repeat this result against Reigning League champions and champions-elect Dynamite Ducks next week.
