Karachi teams set final date in Pakistan Inter-Region U-19 Tourney

Karachi: Karachi Region Blues recorded a convincing seven-wicket triumph against Sialkot on Thursday in the second semifinal in Inter-Region U-19 One-Day Tournament 2017-18 to complete all-Karachi region final here at Pindi Stadium in Rawalpindi.

Earlier on Wednesday, Karachi Whites became the first team to enter final of the tournament after beating Lahore Region Blues by six runs in a high scoring encounter, which saw the two teams scoring 700 hundred runs combined.

The second semifinal turned out to be a low scoring encounter as Sialkot were bundled out for a paltry total of 119 runs in 26.2 overs – thanks to Kahaf Patel for his six-wicket haul. Ashir Mahmood (37 runs) and Abdullah Shafiq (35 runs) were the only ones, who were able to put some resistance for Sialkot.

Karachi Blues slowly but steadily moved towards the target achieving it in 38.4 overs with seven wickets in hand. Haider Ali played an unbeaten but a slow 69-run inning off 115 balls.

The finalist teams, both hailing from Karachi, will battle for glory on May 20 at Pindi Stadium. The winner will bag Rs 200,000 while runner-up side will receive Rs100,000. The Best Batsman of the Tournament, Best Bowler of the Tournament, Best Allrounder/Outstanding Cricketer and Man of the Final Match will each receive Rs 25000.
