Press Release Body: The Lahore Badshahs who have played the series really well as yet and did not lose even a single match in the series lost the first final match which they played against the Hyderabad Heroes. The Badshahs were required to chase a target of 144 runs which was put on by the Hyderabad Heroes.
The Heroes won the toss and elected to bat first. The match was started by Maher and Razzaq who opened strike. Both the players started the game very well and Maher made 33 runs while Razzaq added 21 to the team score. Ambati Rayadu came in after Razzaq's dismissal and managed to hold on for longer time. He made 44 runs off 42 runs and managed a good run rate for the team. The latter players that followed added just meager amounts to the score and the total runs scored came out to be 143 that required to be beaten by the Badshahs.
The Badshahs came in to bat with Umar and Nazir. Nazir lost his game early on with just 5 runs to his name. Umar however continued with his battle. Out of all players that followed in the game, very few could actually make a contribution to the team score which was worthwhile. Azhar Mahmood made 34 runs and supported the battle with Nazir but was dismissed by Maher. It was a very strict bowling attack that the Badshahs had to face and the result came out was equally shocking for everyone. The team ran short of 6 runs to tie the score and lost the match to the Hyderabad Heroes. Binny and Rayadu were awarded the Men of the Match jointly for their performance.
