Sindh

Sindh, led by Pakistan’s international Saud, made an incredible comeback to win the championship. Sindh qualified for the semi-finals after losing half of the six matches. Sindh went on to win two of the remaining four matches.

Sindh won both games against the two-time champions Khyber Pakhtunkhwa in Multan, the first in the group stage and the second in an all-important final. They were defeated by Khyber Pakhtunkhwa by six wickets at Rawalpindi.

Saim Ayub 

Saim Ayub, a 20-year-old left-handed opening batter.  In the PCB-PEPSI Stars U16 One-Day Tournament 2016-17, he played for Karachi U16 versus Peshawar U16. He went on to score 271 runs in nine tournament appearances, including two half-centuries at a strike rate of 109.72.

Saim went on to play in a bilateral series for Pakistan U16 versus Australia U16 in 2018, where he topped the batting statistics with 225 runs from five 50-over matches, including a century and a half-century.

He went on to play in U19 competitions before making his HBL PSL debut with Quetta Gladiators in the 2021 season.

Sindh’s Saim was named player of the tournament in the Kingdom Valley National T20 Cup 2022-23, hitting 416 runs from 12 matches at a fantastic strike rate of 155.22. He blasted 19 sixes and 48 fours, more than any other batter in the event.

Sohail Khan

Sohail Khan, 38, was the tournament’s most productive bowler, having represented Pakistan in 27 international matches (nine Tests, 13 ODIs, and five T20Is). The right-arm fast bowler was crowned the tournament’s top bowler after dismissing 21 hitters in 10 matches. His four for 18 in the final, which included the prized scalp of Sahibzada Farhan (four off two), the tournament’s leading run getter, laid the groundwork for Sindh.

Sahibzada Farhan

Sahibzada Farhan was a driving factor behind his team’s title success in the previous season, scoring 447 runs at an average of 40.63 and a strike rate of 132.24, including three 50s. With 429 runs from 12 matches and a strike rate of 132.41, the right-handed opener was named the tournament’s greatest batter in this season. With 16 sixes and 42 fours, the 27-year-old batsman achieved a century and a half-century.

Salman Ali Agha

Southern Punjab captain Salman Ali Agha played well with the ball, taking five for ten against Central Punjab – the tournament’s lone five-for. Central Punjab were knocked out for 79 in 14.3 overs chasing 166 to win in the tournament’s eighth round at the Pindi Cricket Stadium.

Mohammad Huraira and Nasir Nawaz

Northern’s youthful combo of Mohammad Huraira and Nasir Nawaz was the tournament’s best partnership. Off 82 balls, the duo put up a 132-run partnership for the first wicket. Huraira, 20, hit 13 fours and one six in his 52-ball 86, while Nasir, 24, hit two fours and two sixes in his 35-ball 47. It was also the biggest aggregate match, with 379 runs scored, however Sindh fell one run shy of the mark.

Khyber Pakhtunkhwa 

This edition’s runners-up, Khyber Pakhtunkhwa, scored 201 for five against Balochistan, the highest total in the tournament. 

Central Punjab

Central Punjab was bowled out for 79 in 14.3 overs against Southern Punjab in pursuit of a 166-run total, the lowest score in the competition.

Sindh’s Asif Mehmood VS Khyber Pakhtunkhwa

Sindh’s right arm is quick. Asif Mehmood completed a hat-trick against Khyber Pakhtunkhwa, sending Niaz Khan (six off two), Mohammad Sarwar Afridi (14 off nine), and Mohammad Imran (first ball duck) out to the pavilion in the 20th over of Khyber Pakhtunkhwa’s batting.

Of course, we keep our fingers crossed for Pakistan and believe in our national team. This time we hope that Pakistani players will win the competition. Anyway, we would be happy to hear your opinion. Please write in the comments below.
