KARACHI: Opener Muneeba Ali scored a superb 108 to catapult PCB Challengers to a 42-run win over PCB Dynamites in their outing of the National Triangular T20 Women Cricket Championship here at National Stadium on Saturday.

The left-hander struck 17 fours and a six in her 69-ball feat after Challengers’ captain Bismah Maroof decided to bat.

Muneeba shared a 118-run partnership for the second wicket with her captain Bismah, helping Challengers to post a decent total of 182-3 in the allotted 20 overs. Bismah scored 32 off 31, hitting one four and one six. All-rounder Nida Dar smashed a quick-fire 14-ball 29 not out, smacking four fours and a six. Sana Mir picked 1-44 in four overs.

In response, PCB Dynamites were restricted to 140-5 due to superb bowling from Left-arm spinner Sadia Iqbal who took 3-20 in three overs. Irum Javed top-scored 30-ball 38 which included four fours and a six. Nahida and Kainat Hafeez made 36 and 26 respectively.

Saba Nazir and Nida Dar got one wicket each. Muneeba was adjudged player of the match.
