5th of May marks the end of PACNZ Tape Ball Tournament 2018 Autumn Season. We have seen some really good performances today in the final two games with Habib Marwat hitting 7 sixes (and a 50), Mirxa Nasir hitting 6 sixes, Asim Cheema 42 not out knock, and two brilliant catches by Khawaja Bilal.
Today two games were played, one play-off and one final. Play-off was played between Paki Tigers and Mast Malang. Mast Malang batted first and score 90. It was a tight game, but at the end Paki Tigers were able to chase the total in the last over, and qualified for the Finals to face Eagles. Man of the Match for play-off was Yasir Amin.
In the final game Paki Tigers won the toss and elected to bat. Thanks to Yasir Amin, Syed Umair Mirxa Nasir batting, they gave a mammoth target of 113 for Eagles to chase. Eagles start was slow, and due to loss of early wickets the target seemed unlikely to be achieved. The captain of Eagles team Habib Marwat took charge and tried his level best to help his team cross the winning line by hitting 7 sixes (completing his 50 on the way). But, Eagles fell short and were unable to chase the total, handing the trophy/medals to Paki Tigers, who won the game convincingly.
