Northern 593 (Hurraira 221, Amin 114, Waheed 109, Rohail 94, Aaliyan 4-96, Umar 4-116) beat Sindh 284 and 254 (Fawad 113, Musa 3-49, Jamal 3-63) by an innings and 55 runs
On a foggy morning at Gaddafi Stadium on Tuesday, Sindh lost captain Khurram Manzoor on the seventh ball, and had lost Saim Ayub, Saad Khan and Omair Yousuf by the tenth over.
It was a stellar season for Northern, where they did lose one game – Sindh and Central Punjab didn’t lose even one – but topped the table with 135 points after three wins and six draws.
There were three 600-plus innings totals all tournament, and two of them came from Northern. Hurraira topped the scorers’ chart with 1024 runs at an average of 73.14 [he was the top run-getter last season too], and captain Amin was fourth on that list with 774 runs. Among the bowlers, while Sindh’s Abrar Ahmed was the most successful this season with 43 wickets, Jamal and Mubasir Khan, the Northern bowlers, came in at No. 2 and No. 3 with 31 wickets apiece.
