Abid shines in NAS’ win over Red Knights

DUBAI: Abid Chaudhury continues to torment bowlers at will. After smashing an electrifying 62 from 28 balls against Jumeirah Mammoths a few days ago, the Nad Al Sheba (NAS) star batsman was at his brutal best yet again plundering a century against Dubai Red Knights in the fourth edition of the League of Mammoths cricket tournament at the Sevens ground in Dubai.

The tournament is organised by Dubai Mammoths under the auspices of the Dubai Cricket Council.

NAS won the toss and after contributions from Yuvraj Kurup (22), Devrajan Srinivasan (15) and Naeem Mohammed (20), were still not out of the woods.

It was left to No. 6 batsman Abid to do the rescue act and he did it in his inimitable style, flogging the Red Knights bowlers to all corners of the ground.

Before his departure, Abid did enough damage to Red Knights hopes with his 100 runs off only 56 balls embellished with seven sixes and six fours.

A target of 225 in 25 overs was going to be difficult to achieve especially when only Bharath Menon (32) and Mohit Arora (25) contributed in the top half.

It looked all over for Red Knights when out of the blue No. 10 batsman Shariq Siddique threw his bat around to scare NAS with 55 from 29 balls (4x6, 3x4). But it was as good as his knock lasted as NAS went on to win by 30 runs.

In another match, Zabeel Mammoths trounced Jumeirah Mammoths. Shiva Pagarani bagged three wickets and Sheldon D’Cruz two but Zabeel managed 170 and later restricted Jumeirah to 114.
