Globelink WestStar CC continued their winning streak with yet another dominating performance to register their third victory in the One Stop Tourism 43rd Bukhatir Premier League organized by Sharjah Cricket Council.
The 116-run win over Mir CC, thanks to an allround show from UAE cricketer Amjad Javed, ensured Globelink WestStar CC took the top position in the Group D.
Opting to bat first after turning lucky with the coin at the Sharjah Cricket Stadium, Globelink WestStar CC openers Puneet Kumar and Renjith Mani shared 40 runs for the opening wicket. Puneet added just three runs in that from 13 balls before he fell to Saifullah Noor.
Jiju Janardhanan, who has showed amazing form in this tournament so far, failed this time getting out for just one after which Renjith Mani immediately followed giving Saifullah Noor his second wicket.
Anfal PM made a small contribution of 22 from 41 balls but also shared a fruitful 56-run partnership with Amjad Javed for the fifth wicket.
Javed and Shanib MM further strengthened the innings with a steady 48-run stand for the sixth wicket before Javed perished scoring a fine 58 from 75 balls consisting of eight boundaries.
Shanib MM was unlucky to miss out on his half century as he hit a 58-ball 49 while Subin Sulaiman chipped in with 27 from 39 balls as Globelink WestStar CC piled on 225 before being all out in 43.2 overs.
Saifullah Noor added another to his tally to finish with four wickets while Deep Kundani claimed three.
In reply, Mir CC lost a wicket in the very second ball of the innings before AA Afzal (16, 12b, 2×4, 1×6) and Imad Mushtaq (14, 19b, 2×4) stable the progress.
But they could not resist a disciplined Globelink WestStar CC bowling attack as wickets kept falling at regular interval.
Bilal Irshad was the top scorer with just 24 from 26 balls as Mir CC were bundled out for just 109 in 23.2 overs.
Iftikhar Chohan pocketed four wickets while Amjad Javed and Sharan Pinto scalped two each.
