SRINAGAR: J&K senior Men’s cricket team on Saturday defeated Delhi in a practice T20 match played at Feroz Shah Kotla Ground in New Delhi.
Delhi won the toss and chose to bat first, making 154 runs. J&K’s Mujtaba Yousuf picked up 4 wickets. In response the J&K batters fell like a deck of cards. Only Shubham Khajuria (38) and Ian Dev Singh (27) made meaningful contribution.
With just 1 wicket in hand, J&K crawled to 154 runs to tie the match. And the game went to a super over.
Abdul Samad (11) and Manzoor Dar (9) helped J&K reach 21 runs in the super over.
The Delhi team fell agonizingly short again as they lost the match by 1 run. With Abid Mushtaq giving away 20 runs in the super over.
The practice match is a series of games J&K cricketers are going to play before beginning their Syed Ali Mushtaq Ali T20 Trophy campaign from November 4.
