ICL: Indian Cricket League

ICL Pakistani thrown out of World Series final in Hyderabad


What had started as a seemingly prosperous Indian Cricket League (ICL) season for them last month when they were known as Lahore Badshahs has ended as a rather disappointing one for the ICL Pakistani team. On Monday, they were beaten by ICL World by a six-wicket margin in the last league round match of the ICL 20s World Series at the Lal Bahadur Stadium in Hyderabad, India.

This means that it is the ICL World which has qualified to play against ICL India in the final of the tournament, at the same venue on Tuesday (today). Yesterday, ICL World won with 16 balls remaining after scoring 117 for four in reply to ICL Pakistani’s poor effort of 113 all out in 19.4 overs.

The highest individual score in the vanquished team’s innings was Taufeeq Umar’s 19. Andrew Hall took 3-22 and Upul Chandna 2-26 with Matthew Elliott being the surprise package with three wickets for 17 runs. Although pace bowler Riaz Afridi got 4-16 in his four overs, Australian Ian Harvey’s unbeaten 52 off 46 balls with eight fours had the final say.

In spite of having finished third in a three-team contest, Inzamam-ul-Haq picked up a cheque of fifty lakh rupees. The winners, however, will get 1.25 crore rupees with 75 lakhs going to the runners-up.
