Faysal Bank Super 8 T20 Cup: Shahzaib, Latif take Dolphins to the Semis

The Karachi Dolphins demolished the Faisalabad Wolves today by a whopping 124 runs to become the first team to qualify for the Faysal Bank Super 8 T20 Cup Semi Finals.

The Dolphins' posted a daunting total of 231-7 in 20 overs with Shahzaib Hasan ripping the heart out of the Wolves' bowling with a whirlwind knock of 69 off only 28 deliveries. Shahzaib's innings included 4 sizes and 8 boundaries, and he was involved in a 90 run opening partnership with Asad Shafiq (27 off 22) in a mere 6.4 overs.

Khalid Latif then took up the charge from where Shahzaib left as he smashed 46 runs off 26 deliveries with the help of 5 sixes and a boundary.

Late lusty blows from Sarfraz Ahmed and Mohammad Sami ensured that the Dolphins reached well beyond 200, a total that proved too much for the Wolves.

None of the Wolves' batsmen could post a significant score and they folded for 107 in only 13.3overs.

Pakistan discard Sohail Khan was the pick of the bowlers for the Dolphins picking up 3-32 including the prized scalp of Pakistan skipper Misbah Ul Haq.

The Dolphins ended the league stage at the top of Group B and now await the results of Group A tomorrow to see who they face in the semi finals.

    I thought Lahore had already qualified for Semis before this match...

    There was a small chance of Hyderabad beating Lahore today by a heavy margin, and Sialkot beating Islamabad by a heavy margin, which would have resulted in Hyderabad and Sialkot having a higher net run rate than Lahore.. unlikely but still a chance.. didn't happen and Lahore is through..
