After two months of heart racing action, the final of the Red Bull Campus Cricket 2015 lived up to its billing as the Jinnah Degree College Karachi’s team outwitted Lahore’s University of Central Punjab by 17 runs to earn the title of Red Bull Campus Cricket 2015 Pakistan Champion.

The final match was launched by a colourful opening ceremony that attracted legendary cricket stars like Wasim Akram, Shoaib Akhtar, Moin Khan and Saleem Yousaf. Besides the living legends that attended the event some of the leading Karachi based current cricketers including Sarfraz Ahmed, Anwar Ali, Asad Shafiq and Khurram Manzoor also turned up on a memorable Sunday night at the DHA Sports Club, Moin Khan Cricket Academy, Karachi.

After winning the toss, the captain of the University of Central Punjab team Ali Tipu Sultan opted to bowl first on a sluggish pitch. Jinnah Degree College got off to a steady start but lost three wickets in quick succession. Shahzar Hasan, younger brother of Pakistan international Shahzeb Hasan, held the innings together with a vital innings of 53. After Shahzar’s departure, Qadir Khan ensured a competitive score of 119 runs in the allotted 20 overs through a workmanlike run a ball 31. Ali Tipu who snared three wickets in the semi-final, took four in the final, conceding 22 runs in his four overs.

University of Central Punjab were taxed in their chase from the outset as the pitch became increasingly sluggish under the lights at the Moin Khan Academy. Tamour Sultan was the only batsman to make an impact, top scoring for his team with a 48 ball 54. Tamour though fell in the 16th over with his team still 39 runs adrift of the 120 run target.

After his demise the innings folded quickly with Jinnah Degree College’s all out spin attack ably backed by some sharp fielding all around the park. Waqas took three wickets while Salman took two. The Pakistan champions would now travel to India to take part in the Red Bull Campus Cricket World Finals scheduled for October 2015.

First Daraz.pk Experience!

The love for notebooks, all kind, makes me search all the eCommerce websites all day long. It’s like my distraction break! I have been shopping online for a while now but a very few eCommerce websites give you that online shopping experience that you want. Daraz.pk was one of the best experiences so far!

Last week I ordered the AI Inc Red Genuine Leather Notebook from Daraz which recently came in the mail. Christmas present to myself and I absolutely love it!!

The beautiful red leather finish, the quality of the pages and the overall style of the notebook is just worth all your money! It really is an ideal notebook to show off at your meetings and briefing session and carrying along on your road-trips! I buy a lot of leather bound notebooks and never compromise on the quality. This one from Daraz is of a really good quality!

Another plus point was the discount I got on it. Nothing better than that!

For all the writers out there, this notebook is a must buy!

For me, this is going to be my inspiration to write more next year!ai-inc-0397-08201-1-zoom ai-inc-0412-08201-3-zoom
