Catalunya Tigers beat XI Stars by 49 runs!

A clinical performance from Catalunya Tigers, they have just shown what they are capable off with the bat and the ball. 

The bowlers stood up to the occasion after that blistering innings from Iqbal to setup the chase but Stars looked clueless except for Aamir Hamza and Tanveer Shah who once thought could do what Iqbal and Yasir Ali did for Tigers. 

Hamza in that powerplay went berserk to score a quick fire 31 off just 10 balls and another cameo from Asif Mehmood later on but wasn't enough to see their team through as they kept losing wickets at regular intervals. 

Chief destroyer of the batting line-up of Stars was Ghulam Dastgeer, his quirky left-arm bowling proved to be too good for them, he was flighting them nicely and the batsman were getting foxed as he finished off with brilliant figures of 13-4 and that's quite an achievement in the T10 format. 

Stars never recovered from the early blows and once Hamza perished it was almost but certain that they are losing this game by a big margin and in the end lose to Tigers by 49 runs. Iqbal and Dastgeer were brilliant for them today and an all around performance see their team through in this contest.
