Defending Sindh to take on Northern in final today
KARACHI: Defending Champions Sindh U19 will take on table-toppers Northern in the National U19 Three-Day Tournament final, a four-day affair, at Rawalpindi’s KRL Stadium from today. Both sides had met in the final of last edition, in which Sindh came out victorious by a seven-wicket margin. Aamir was the star performer, taking eleven wickets for 133 runs. The two sides have played each other once in the round-robin stage of the tournament. Northern won that match by seven wickets on the back of all-round performance by Mubasir Khan, who took nine wickets for 135 and scored an unbeaten 68-ball 60 in the fourth innings of the match to help his team chase the target easily. For Sindh, Hassan Jafri’s 105 off 192 balls went in vain. After the completion of group stage, Northern topped the points table with 20 points, while Sindh finished at the second place with 14 points. They will be led by left-handed batsman Saim Ayub, who has scored 212 runs – including a half century– in five matches with an average of 42.40. He has also taken five wickets in the tournament. - PPI
