Shihan shines as Scintilla overcome Chakwal

Emdad Rahman

Aminul Islam Shihan’s brilliant unbeaten 124 was the platform for a famous Scintilla CC victory as the Barking side beat Chakwal. The massive score gave Scintilla an amazing win over Chakwal Stars.

Chakwall won the toss and batted first to reach a handy 263/8 after 40 overs with Amir (55) and Najaf (65) featuring prominently.

It wasn’t quite enough though, as Ayaz Karim set loose Ashfaqur Rahaman Nobel who achieved 4/35 and 27 runs. The run chase was set in motion by a controlled 58 from Ashraful Islam, 50 from Sajal Rahman, 38 from Junaed Rahman Tanin (Nanna) and 34 from Fahim Ahmed before the Shihan show wrapped up proceedings as Scintilla stormed home by four wickets after 36 overs.

Captain Ayaz Karim said, “This is one of the best performances I have had the pleasure of witnessing for a long time. Shihan was just immense but the old guard of Sajal, Nobel, Ashraful and Junaed showed just how much strength in depth we have. This is a win to treasure but we now focus on the next two games.”
