KARACHI: A fine team effort inspired Vital Five CC to a clinical nine-wicket rout of Student Sports CC in the latest KCCA Zone-I fixture of the PCB Fazal Mahmood National Club Cricket Championship here on Monday.

After being put into bat at the Al-Nadil Al-Burhani Ground, Student Sports crashed to 110 all out in 31.3 overs with Bilal Aziz (43 off 63 balls, six fours and one six) offering some resistance.

The slow lef-armer duo of Fahim Ahmed (3-22 in 9.3 overs) and Shaharyar Tanvir (3-38 in 7) shared bulk of the wickets.

Vital Five CC needed only 13.4 overs to reach the modest target thaks to the unbroken second-wicket partnership of 84 between opener Saad Alam (53 off 45, nine boundaries) and Yasir Hussain (38 off 24, six fours).

Summarised scores:

STUDENT SPORTS CC 110 in 31.3 overs (Bilal Aziz 43, Abdullah Baloch 19; Fahim Ahmed 3-22, Shaharyar Tanvir 3-38, Yasir Hussain 2-11, Arsalan Tariq 2-16); VITAL FIVE CC 113-1 in 13.4 overs (Saad Alam 53 not out, Yasir Hussain 38 not out, Hasan Mahmood 19).
