Delhi has the bowlers no doubt (Khan, Khan and Steyn) but we have the better batsman in my opinion. Our opening batsman and Faheem made it a more respectable total, the latter was amazing.

Faheem, Plunkett and our Indian spin duo is more than capable of restricting any opposition. Let's see ...

It was always our bowling who made game for us and today Rashid was exceptional, would have been good if we have use the situation to our advantage but Faheem played a blinder.
It is good score and the lineup they have it's not going to be easy but we have confidence in our batting, each time they have put a performance at crucial time to take the team to winning line.

Faheem Ashraf played an all-timer to rescue his team from a spot of bother and gave them a fighting total after they were reduced to 137/6 before he came out to bat.
Rashid Khan went on a rampage on Kolkata Exemplars and claimed a 4-fer in his first 4.0 overs to completely dismantle their innings and subdue their openers' fiery start.

He completed his 5-wicket haul in his final over after having taken some beating from Faheem Ashraf - the left-hander would later go on to score 76 and remain unbeaten.
Faheem Ashraf's pivotal knock saved Kolkata Exemplars from completely stinking up the game and gave their bowlers somewhat of a fighting total to defend in the final.

Dale Steyn was Delhi Dynamos' trump card coming into the final - but he was taken to the cleaners by Shikhar Dhawan in his first spell. He claimed one scalp in the game.
Kolkata Exemplars openers were brilliant but their middle-order crumbled completely to Rashid Khan - if it weren't for Faheem Ashraf, the final would've been over by now.

Fakhar Zaman's sublime knock and Hasan Khan's valiant antics go in vain as Kolkata Exemplars trump Delhi Dynamos by 23 runs to become the Champions of the Multiverse.
Delhi Dynamos' run-chase was ravaged by Ravindra Jadeja and Liam Plunkett - both bowlers claimed three wickets apiece with the former being economical in his 8.0 overs.

Luke Ronchi, Sami Aslam, Chris Lynn and their No. 10 - Hasan Khan chipped-in with 20-odd run innings each but they needed someone to go big alongside Fakhar Zaman.
Delhi Dynamos had the deliveries to get to 239 but Kolkata Exemplars had the winning strategy - they bowled their opposition out since they didn't have the runs to defend.

Great tourney @Na Maloom Afraad :cheers - hope you enjoyed your journey down memory lane (Stellar career - stuff of legends)
:cheers

Legitimately can't believe I'm closing in on a decade. Started this as a pastime when I was 13, can't believe I'm still going. Actually pretty nuts. Where has time gone.

It also made me seriously miss some of the older guys on the forums, @Sami Kumar in particular.
