Jinnah win Chairman POF Board Floodlit cricket

Jinnah Tigers won the Second Chairman POF Board Floodlit tape ball cricket Tournament 2016 by beating Lala Rukh Mighty by 8 wickets in the final match played at Oval Cricket Ground Wah Cantt.

Lala Rukh Mighty won the toss and selected batting first, however, this decision turned out negative for them. They were only able to score a meager 53 for the loss of 9 wickets in allotted 8 overs. No batsman from Lala Rukh Mighty was able to make an individual score of double figures. On the other hand, Jinnah Tigers achieved the target in just 9 wickets and 3 overs. More than a competition, it was a one-sided play for the tournament.

This tournament went successful as 32 teams hailing from Wah Cantt, Attock, Rawalpindi, Haripur and surrounding areas participated. Secretary POF Sports Control Board also praised the players for their hard work and dedication in the tournament. He also thanked all the sponsors for becoming a part of this exciting and sporty event.

POF Sports Control Board is expected to further organize and engage in hunting new talent by utilizing the resources. This tournament was one of the efforts to promote local sports in general. There is an unfortunate shortage of local sports in Pakistan. In order to make perfect players for the national cricket teams, local sports in Pakistan need finances and support. If young people are encouraged at local levels, things would work out really well for professional sports.
