In the low scoring T20 match, the Prime Minister’s XI won the game by one wicket against the Islanders. The visitors batted first and could only put on 130 runs for the loss of eight wickets in their allotted 20 overs.
In reply, Harry Nielsen hit a 50-ball 79, but the hosts’ batting line-up fell like a pack of cards and they lost nine wickets before Fawad Ahmed steered his side to victory with a ball to spare.
