Moin inaugurates PVCA Inter-School tourney

Karachi—Defending champions Beaconhouse School whipped Ladybird Grammar School by 10 wickets in the inaugural match of the 8th edition of the Pakistan Veterans Cricket Association (PVCA) Inter-School Cricket Tournament 2016 for the Omar Trophy which got underway here at the Karachi Gymkhana Cricket Ground on Thursday.
Electing to bat, after winning the toss, Ladybird Grammar School was bowled out for 93 in 22.5 overs. Chasing a modest target of 94 in 40 overs, Beaconhouse raced to the target in 13 overs without losing any wicket.
Earlier, Ladybird Grammar School could not recover losing early wickets. The middle-order batsmen also failed to click against the potent spin-cum-pace attack of the opponents.
“Mr Extras” turned out to be the leading scorer with 17 while only Anas Ali (16), Amanullah (14) and Abdul Rafay (14) could reach double figures.
The innings was rocked by the Beaconhouse School left-arm spinner Waleed Hasan Shahid (3-14).
Sgagud was adjudged Man of the Match because of his brilliant performance.
He was ably supported by leg-spinner Muaz Bin Sulaiman (2-13) and medium-pacer Hamza Tahir (2-16).
The Beaconhouse School opening pair of Ahmed Kabir and Haris Bin Tahir completed the job in style, adding 96 for their unbroken opening partnership in only 13 overs. Ahmed Kabir was the more aggressive of the two, smashing one six and eight fours in his unbeaten 59 off 52 balls while Haris Bin Tahir struck two boundaries in his undefeated 25 off 26 balls.
Before the start of the match, a colourful ceremony was held in which Moin Khan, a former Pakistan captain and the head coach of Quetta Gladiators, declared the tournament open.—APP
