Press Release Body: Now this is a complete surprise for those who are following the Edelweiss Challenge closely that the Hyderabad Heroes won the second final of the series too and have lifted the cup this time. There could have been a more exciting end to a final match than a bowl out which found the decision for today's match.
The toss for the match was won by the Lahore Badshahs and they chose to bat first. The openers of the team, Umar and Nazir opened strike but Umar was lost pretty early to Absolem on just 13 runs. Farhat came to take his place and he and Nazir scored 30 runs each on the field before their dismissal. The players after that saw a downfall and could not play at all. Single digit figures could be seen as the players came and stayed for little while before departure. Mahmood tried to do some wonder but ended at 13 runs. The team crashed at just 130 runs setting up a small target for them.
The Hyderabad Heroes started well with Maher and Razzaq but both of them went off after 19 runs each. Rayadu and Boje came in to settle on the pitch and Rayadu did that well. He was the top scorer with 46 runs in the team. However the middle and lower order of the team crashed in suddenly and wickets were lost very quickly. A comfortable situation suddenly became serious and the team score ended at a tie with 130 runs.
Then it was a bowl out that had to decide the fate of the teams. The toss for the bowl out was won by Harris and he chose to bowl first. The Heroes got a lead in the bowl out too and the Badshahs missed it. Gradually, when the Badshahs missed 2 out of three, the Heroes scored 3-1 lead and won the second final match too.
The Heroes lifted the cup of the Edelweiss Twenty20 challenge today with a 2-0 lead in the finals. Naved-ul-Hasan from Badshahs and Rayadu from Heroes team were awarded Men of the Match. Abdul Razzaq was awarded the Man of the Series for his all round brilliant and consistent performance.
