Youngsters continue to shine in the on going Faysal Bank Super 8 T20 Cup, with yet another power packed performance by Zain Abbas in Multan Tigers' upset win over the Karachi Dolphins today.
Zain, who made his T20 debut two days ago in the Tigers' game against the Wolves, smashed an international calibre attack for an impressive 85 runs off 65 deliveries, leading the Tigers to a match winning total of 161 off 20 overs.
The Dolphins, whose pace attack included internationals Tanvir Ahmed, Mohammad Sami, and Sohail Khan had no answer to Zain's attack as his onslaught comprised of 3 sixes and 10 hits to the fence.
Zain score more than half the Tigers runs, which proved to be more than enough for a 14 run win.
Despite their batting line up including a number of internationals such as Shahzaib Hasan, Khalid Latif, Asad Shafiq, and Fawad Alam, the Dolphins could not over haul the Tigers score.
Zain, who has so far opened in all his domestic innings, made his first class debut this season for Baluchistan and has so far impressed with two half centuries in 4 innings.
His List A performance has been even more impressive with a century and 3 half centuries in 5 innings.
