On Sunday, the Quaid e Azam Trophy 2023-24 final is played between Karachi Whites and Faisalabad at the Gaddafi Stadium, Lahore. Saim Ayub, an upcoming talented player made an outstanding double hundred.
In the opening overs, Opener Khurram Manzoor fell early with just three runs. However, Karachi’s fortunes changed dramatically with a record-breaking partnership.
Saim Ayub shines with a maiden double century, amassing 200 runs from 244 balls, featuring 22 boundaries and two sixes. His exceptional performance leaves the Faisalabad bowlers struggling to contain him.
Shan Masood, on the other hand, comes close to his double century, scoring 180 runs, including 20 boundaries, 13 fours, and seven sixes. Unfortunately, his innings end with an inside edge that dislodges the bails.
Saim Ayub’s recent success extends beyond this match, as he previously impressed in the Pakistan Super League and the Caribbean Premier League, where he helped secure the title.
Karachi Whites and Faisalabad are competing fiercely for the first-class title, marking a significant milestone in Pakistani cricket since the 2014 PCB constitution restoration. Sarfaraz Ahmed leads the Whites, while Faheem Ashraf captains Faisalabad.
