Published on May 15, 2016
Syed Maqsood bludgeoned the Emirates Bulls bowling to all around the park to pile up 211 from 75 balls in the Gulf Technical division-2 Twenty20 Cup.
The United Bank Limited s opener belted 24 fours and 15 sixes to take his team s total to 298 for four and Emirates Bulls in reply were shot out for 70 at the ADCC Nursery Oval.
Maqsood, who was out in the final delivery of the inning, shared a 187-run stand for the second wicket with Babar Hussain who looked a mere spectator with a contribution of 33 off 27 balls.
Jalal Bukhari took six wickets for one run in two overs after chipping in with a useful 47 not out in LLH Hospital s convincing 128-run victory over Environment Agency at the adjoining Oval.
