ICL India went to the top of the three-team table as they trounced the ICL World team by a 44-run margin, in a league round match of the Indian Cricket League (ICL) 20s World Series at the Lal Bahadur Shastri Stadium in Hyderabad, India, on Saturday night.
ICL World captain Chris Cairns of New Zealand won the toss and put ICL India in to bat. In their 20 overs, the host side rattled up a score of 163 for eight, thanks mainly to a 44 off 36 balls with seven fours by the left-handed Syed Abbas Ali, the grandson of legendary India batsman S Mushtaq Ali.
ICL World were restricted to a poor 119 for eight in their 20 overs in reply. Medium-pacer Stuart Binny, son of former India all-rounder Roger, took two wickets for 19 runs in three overs and was declared Man of the Match. Earlier, for ICL India, he had scored a knock of 21 off 16 balls with two fours and a six while batting at number six.
ICL Pakistani, who were stunned by ICL India on Friday through a four-wicket defeat, will now be meeting their arch-rivals again today (Sunday) hoping to get back to the top spot once again.
