ICL: Indian Cricket League

Well Done Shoaib Khan

Written by Commoner on October 15th, 2008   (169 views)

The Maple Leaf Ground at King City, Toronto, Canada brought some good news for Pakistan as a new talent clicked. The good news was not really the half century of the new opener, Shoaib Khan, but it was the promise the lad showed as an opener, and that must not be ignored and that should be groomed and cultivated by the board at every cost, because after a long time an opener has been found for Pakistan.

Left-handed opener Shoaib Khan slammed a maiden half-century and Fawad Alam grabbed three top wickets as Pakistan topped the Quadrangular Canada Twenty20 International Cricket Championship League, with a comfortable seven wickets success over Zimbabwe at the Maple Leaf Ground at King City.

Electing to bat first, Zimbabwe could manage only 107 for the loss of eight wickets due to an excellent bowling show by Fawad Alam and Umar Gul. Pakistan in reply recovered after losing Shahid Afridi for five in the second over and late hiccups to reach the target for the loss of three wickets in 19 overs.

The victory of Pakistan over Zimbabwe is not so much of a feat, but the way Quetta born young opener played was a treat to watch. His shot selection and the temperament was fabulous and with fitness, training and proper guidance he is sure to go places for Pakistan.
