Record breaking Riyaan make history at European Cricket Series Cyprus

Captain Shoaib Ahmad sets the example

Riyaan racked up the highest ever team score in European Cricket Series history posting a mammoth total of 197 against Nicosia Tigers.

Leaders Riyaan romped to 197 in their 10 overs with opener Sibtal Hassnain smoking 72 off 24 balls, and rapid contributions from Attah Ullah (24 off 7), Shoaib Ahmad (55 off 20) and Tayyab Bashir (25 off 9). In all, the rampant Riyaan batsmen roasted 15 sixes and 16 fours in their 10 over allocation in their thumping 98 run victory over the toothless Nicosia Tigers.

Sibtal sets the standard
Riyaan Captain Shoaib Ahmad followed his batting heroics with 5-14 with the ball in a genuine man-of-the-match performance.
Riyaan’s record score betters Sporting Alfas’ splendid 186 from the European Cricket Series Alicante in March, when former Surrey batsman Eddie Ballard scored the first ever century in European Cricket Series history.

Of course, the overall European Cricket League record is 222, posted by champions V.O.C. Rotterdam in the ECL19 Final against Germany’s SG Findorff at La Manga Club in Spain.
