Zimpapers Sport Hub

CHEVRONS bowler Richard Ngarava’s team, Multan Sultans, lost in the final of this year’s Pakistan Super League T20 tournament.

The Sultans lost to Islamabad United won by two wickets, off the last ball, of a dramatic finale on Monday evening.

Ngarava did not make the Sultans team for the final.

The Sultans made 159/9, off their 20 overs, while Islamabad United reached 163/8, off the final ball, hit for four off Mohammad Ali, by Hunain Shah.

This meant Ngarava did not get to bowl a single ball, having joined the Sultans as a late replacement for English seamer Olly Stone early this month.

Ngarava had made one appearance for Eagles on the Zimbabwe Domestic T20 tournament, which was eventually won by visiting Durham.

He then flew to Pakistan where he joined Chevrons teammates Sikandar Raza and Blessing Muzarabani.

Raza played in eight of the Lahore Qalandars’ 10 matches as they finished bottom of the league with just one win.

The Chevrons T20 skipper, and all-rounder, claimed three wickets and scored 91 runs in the disappointing campaign.

Muzarabani took six wickets in five matches for Karachi Kings, who finished fifth in the six-team league, after winning four of their 10 matches.

Karachi Kings and the Lahore Qalanders were eliminated at the end of the group phase.
