Mujib stars in Heat’s triumph over Scorchers

Mujib stars in Heat’s triumph over Scorchers

KABULinfo-icon (Pajhwok): Afghan spinner Mujeebur Rahman has helped Brisbane Heat break their victory drought in the ongoing Big Bash League (BBL) in Australia.

A superb bowling spell from the gritty teenager saw his side trounce the Perth Scorchers by five wickets in their fourth match, according to the website ESPN Cricinfo.

With his magical spin, Mujeeb stunned the Scorchers’ top order after they were asked to bat first. He captured two wickets, conceding only 10 in four overs.

Ashton Turner made 47 from 30 balls to give some respectability to Scorchers’ total. Then Nathan Coulter-Nile captured three wickets to give Scorchers a chance.

However, Ben Cutting and Joe Burns batted ruthlessly to see the Heat dry end home, with 10 balls to spare. The win saw the Heat rise from the bottom of the table.

As they took on the Scorchers on Saturday, the Heat badly needed a win after three losses. Mujeeb, the main difference between the two teams, delivered for his skipper Chris Lynn claiming the big wicket of Mitch Marsh.

Elated by his role in Heat’s triumph, Mujeeb said: "I'm very excited to be named Player of the Match. I'm very excited. I am really enjoying it very much ..."
