SANA MAHMOOD

LAHORE: Fierce Pakistani bowlers cowed-down the star-studded World XI squad – chasing  198-run target set by the green shirts – by restricting them to 177 runs for 7 here today at Gaddafi stadium.

Even though the Green Shirts commenced their inning rather precariously seeing Fakhar Zaman going back to pavilion in the first over, the team managed to muster-up 197/5 thanks to the 122-run partnership between Ahmed Shehzad and Babar Azam.

Captain Faf du Plessis was caught out. The key scalp was taken by Shadab Khan who also stumped David Miller. Towards the end of the inning Thisara Perera was run out with only one ball remaining in the visitors’ kitty.

86 runs off 52 balls by Azam was the highest score that earned the batsman Man of the Match award.

While applauding the revival of international cricket here, citizens lamented the curfew-like milieu that resulted into traffic jams and closure of main arteries and business centers.
