Rajputs beat Punjabi Legends by 12 runs in the 17th match of the T10 League 2.0 – at the Sharjah Cricket Stadium on Wednesday.

Punjabi Legends who have been playing poorly from the last few matches, found the Rajputs’ attacks too strong to stand in front of and some deadly pieces of bowling led by Munaf Patel and Tymal Mills were extremely heavy on the batsmen.

Punjabi Legends scored 105 runs losing 6 wickets while chasing Rajputs’ modest total of 117 runs for 5 in ten overs. Umar Akmal and Philip Salt were the highest scorer from Punjabi Legends, both hitting 34 runs in 19 and 17 balls respectively, however, short of meeting the total needed to win.

After Umar Akmal’s wicket, the team started to lose hope and gradually the team’s batting line ran out of steam. Only Philip Salt’s batting made the team going. Among the 6 wickets of Punjabi Legends, 2 were taken by Munaf Patel, 2 by Tymal Mills, 1 by Carlos Brathwaite and 1 by Sayed Shirzad.

Earlier, Rajputs’ captain Brendon McCullum led his team, with 28 off 15 balls including 1 six and 3 boundaries while other batsmen, Rilee Rossouw, Mohammad Shahzad, Carlos Brathwaite contributed quite handsomely, all scoring above 20 runs to power their team to make 117 runs losing 5 wickets.

In the end, Punjabi Legends, although were bang on target, lost too many early wickets and thus found difficult to match the total.

T10 League is the world’s first and currently the only professional ten-over format international cricket league backed by the Emirates Cricket Board (ECB) and sanctioned by the International Cricket Council (ICC), governing body of international cricket.

The 2018 edition scheduled to start from November 21 and spread over 12 days, will have 29 matches as compared to a 4-day event in 2017. To meet this new challenge and also to keep the event clean, the T10 League management has made many positive changes to bolster the execution and operations of the 2018 T10 League tournament.
