JEDDAH — Kashif Zaman’s superb bowling spell of 5 wickets for only 1 run took Al-Zafer to a massive 102 run win. UT Lines, Butt Sports, Pak Shaheen, Makkah Eagles, Naseem Al-Zahra and ARM United also prevailed over their respective opponents in the 10th week matches of the Ace Travel Saudi Cup sponsored by Ace Travel and Tours and organized by Jeddah Cricket Association.

UT Lines recorded a big 105-run win over AEC with Bilal putting on an all-round performance, scoring 69 and taking 2 wickets for 4 runs. Al-Zafer won handsomely by 102 runs despite being restricted to 152 but in turn bundled out Riyadh Foods for a paltry 50 with Kashif Zaman taking 5 for 1. Butt Sports scraped through with a 16-run win over KAIA, thanks to Saeed’s 64 runs. Pak Shaheen raced to a 7-wicket win with Furqan (50) and Usman (49 not out) reaching 133 with ease. Makkah Eagles also scored an 8-wicket win over Awan CC through the combination of Saad (58) and Irafn (43). Nazeer’s unbeaten 107, studded with 16 fours and 2 sixes, enabled ARM United down Al-Burj by 33 runs. Amir Wahlah’s 64 runs and 3 for 33 and Nadeem’s unbeaten 86 off 34 balls inclusive of 8 sixes and 7 fours, lifted Naseem Al-Zahra to an 8-wicket win over Makkah Kings.
