Performer of the Match: Nabi makes it for the Vikings yet again

0

The Afghan all-rounder has been on a roll in the AKS BPL T20 2016 as he proved his worth in almost every match of the season so far, albeit his side underwent a losing streak of four matches. However, the Chittagong Vikings have bounced back on their home ground courtesy Mohammad Nabi, who put an ‘eye-catching’ knock of 87 runs to set the platform for their second win of the season. 

Nabi had to play the innings under pressure as his side was reduced to 68/4 when he got into the middle. He took time to get set before singling out Rajshahi skipper Sammy to hit bounderies. He interspersed his stroke-powered innings with enough strike rotations. Finally, with an unbeaten knock of 87 from 37, decorated by 6 fours and as many sixes, Nabi lifted the team total to 190/5.

He was vital for his side in defense too as he got Samit Patel stumped and caught three important catches. Eventually, his side clinched the much needed win by 19 runs.
