Bowlers Munis Ansari with outstanding figures of 5 for 20 off 6 overs, one of which was a maiden, along with Rajesh Ranpura 4 for 21 off 6.5 overs, helped Muscat Cricket Team register a comfortable 10-wicket win over Times of Oman.
The Muscat Pharmacy & Stores LLC sponsored 50 overs a side 'A' Division match was played on the Main Ministry Turf Ground at Al Amerat on Thursday.
The decision of Muscat skipper Hemal Mehta's to field first after winning the toss was proven correct when his bowlers made use of the conditions to bundle out Times of Oman for a miserable 51 off 13.5 overs.
At the end of the ninth over, Times of Oman were 32 for the loss of eight wickets. They managed to make 51 thanks to the contributions from No.9 batsman Sultan Ahmed 14 (22b, 2x4) and Muhammed Nadeem batting at No.8 making 11 (14b). Rest of the batsmen fell like nine pins and could not enter even the double digit. The Muscat openers put up together 54 for no loss off 15.1 overs with V. Vamshi Ram remaining unbeaten on 28 (55b, 4x4) and his partner Mohammed Asad Ali scored 24 not out (36b, 4x4). Brief scores: Times of Oman 'A' – 51 All Out off 13.5 overs (Sultan Ahmed 14; Munis Ansari 5/20 and Rajesh Ranpura 4/21); Muscat – 54 for no loss off 15.1 overs (V. Vamshi Ram 28 N.O. and Mohammed Asad Ali 24 N.O.); Points: Muscat: 5 points (7 games – 18 points) and Times of Oman – no points (7 games – 13 points).
