Northern’s bowler Athar Mehmood has ended up with nine wickets as Match 15th of the Quaid e Azam trophy ended in his team’s favour, battling versus Khyber Pakhtunkhwa. The table toppers met the last-placed team on 21st September and ended the match on Day 4 following a poor batting display from KPK.
Their batting line-up was certainly demolished by good-going NOR bowlers, including Mehmood’s three and six-wicket hauls in first and second innings of KPK respectively. Although he conceded runs near 100 in KPK’s first inning, but managed crucial wickets, including those of the openers.
He helped restricting KPK on 175, assisting his batters develop a lead later amassing 249 runs with the help of Sarmad Bhatti’s 114. In the second inning, he plucked six wickets and helped KPK fall below par on 121. Due to Athar’s bowling, his team’s batter easily chased a minnow lead on the fall of one wicket, to close the game by nine-wicket win.
