Afridi fails to stop Yo Power in Sharjah Sixes

Pakistan all-rounder turns out for Dubai Lions

Yo Power had a field day winning both their matches in the inaugural Sharjah Sixes, organised by the Sharjah Cricket Council at the Sharjah Cricket Stadium on Thursday night.

The presence of Pakistan cricketer Shahid Afridi, who played for Dubai Lions, was the highlight of the day.

But despite his quick 25-run contribution, Yo Power defeated Dubai Lions by three wickets after UAE player Swapnil Patil cracked a fine unbeaten 29 to successfully chase a target of 54 with still a over to spare.

In their second match of the day, Sunny Patel produced one of the best bowling efforts of the tournament to scalp three wickets in his one over as YoPower ousted NTDE by six wickets.

His spell meant NTDE were bundled out for a meager 29 which Yo Power successfully chased in 2.1 overs.

After the first loss, Dubai Lions recovered well to trash NTDE by six wickets. A Shezad scored an unbeaten 30.

Danube Lions made their intentions clear in this tournament registering a comfortable four-wicket victory against Nucaf Tellicherry.

Danube Lions’ Adnan Mufti (22 not out) and Rohan Mustafa (13 not out) shone with the bat to hand Nucaf Tellicherry a four-wicket defeat.

In the other matches, Cricket Maxway defeated Radio Mirchi by seven runs; Desert Kings Waterproofing ousted RSS by a huge 73 runs; Team Interface recorded an easy four-wicket win over Oxford Account; NMC Healthcare also defeated Chaanakyas Kerala by four wickets.
