[tag]Pakistan[/tag] deaf cricket team’s all-rounder Naseer Butt hit a whirlwind fifty besides grabbing two wickets to lead his team to an emphatic 101-run victory over their Indian counterparts in the third one-day match at the [tag]Multan[/tag] Cricket Stadium here on Sunday.

It was the third consecutive victory achieved by Pakistan’s deaf cricket team against their arch-rivals in the five-match series which the hosts have won 3-0 with the Multan victory with two matches yet to be played.

Pakistan won the matches of the ongoing series at Hyderabad and Karachi before scoring victory at Multan on Sunday. The 50-over-a-side match was reduced to a 20-overs-a-side event after Saturday’s rain left the Multan turf unfit for play.

However, hectic efforts by groundsmen, led by the PCB curator Bashir Kardar, enabled the organisers to begin the match at 2 pm.

India, after winning the toss, invited the hosts to bat first. Pakistan accumulated 177-7 in 20 overs with half-centuries from Naseer Butt (57) and M. Kamran (50). Naseer hit three sixes and four boundaries while Kamran hit seven boundaries. Bilal Aslam hit two sixes and four boundaries in his 38. Wicket-takers from India included Rajesh Nair (2-26), Wishal (1-23), Rakesh Roy (1-21) and Sumit Jane (1-43).

In reply, the Indian batting line-up was demolished as the home bowlers dismissed them for a paltry 76 in 19.5 overs. Fiery bowling by fast bowler Gohar Usman, who claimed three wickets for just 19 runs while spin magic of Naseer Butt (2-13) did the main damage. Adnan Ghani, Nadeem Ahmad and M. Shakeel claimed one wicket each while two Indian batsmen were run out.

Rajesh Nair (14) was the only batsman who reached double figures while the Indian total of 76 also included fourteen extra runs.
