Experienced left-arm spinner Farhan Kazi was back to business as he did what he does best as he was the pick of the bowlers with bowling figures of 5/35 in 8 overs. It was a close match where Fort Vijay fell short of just 1wkt from a win. The match was drawn but it was Royston & Farhan’s bowling which was the highlight perfomance of the match.
