KARACHI: Sultan Ahmed of Omar Associates earned his second consecutive man of the match award in the Advance Telecom Corporate T20 Cup 2012 after helping his side beat NBP by three wickets. NBP openers Aminur Rehman and Bilal Munir gave them a cautious start of 43 runs. The innings was further steadied by Shahid Yousuf and captain Fawad Alam who made 26 and 28, respectively but NBP could only manage 120 for six. M Irfan and Sultan grabbed two wickets each. Omar Associates crumbled early in their reply as they lost three wickets with only 11 on the board. However, Adnan Raza and Sultan played sensible knocks and steered Omer Associates to 125 for seven off the penultimate delivery and set up a semi-final clash with Advance Telecom tonight. Osama Basharat picked up four wickets for 30 runs.
