Nicholas
Pooran’s 68 off 34 balls on a flat pitch propelled New York when they were in
the batting position. Despite a mid-innings wobble, Pollard’s aggressive cameo
restored momentum. At 135/7 in the 17th over, the innings was teetering.
However, Boult provided a stunning twist with 20* off just 6 balls to propel
New York to 194/8. The target seemed below par, but Heinrich Klaasen had other
ideas. His extraordinary 110* off 44 delivered victory, overshadowing Boult’s

Down New York’s Total

When Dasun
Shanaka fell at the end of the 15th over, Seattle still needed 57 runs from 30
balls. But Klaasen took charge brilliantly, dominating a crucial 39-run stand
with Nauman Anwar to tilt the game. Even Anwar’s dismissal in the 18th over
didn’t deter Klaasen, who continued to find boundaries at will. Needing 18 off
the last two overs, Klaasen sealed victory in style with two massive sixes,
finishing with a remarkable strike rate 250.

Fall Just Short 

Despite Pollard, Boult Cameos

With Pooran’s
68 as its foundation, New York appeared to be on track for 200+ at the halfway
point before losing steam. Pollard’s intervention and Boult’s late blast set a
testing target 195. 
The total
looked adequate on a flat surface that aided strokeplay. But Klaasen’s sublime
hitting turned the game, powering Seattle to an unlikely win despite Boult’s 4
wickets. In the end, New York was left to rue, letting the game slip despite
cameos from Pollard and Boult. Klaasen’s exhibition of clean hitting proved the
difference.

 

Shanaka Anchors
Orcas Chase 

Before Klaasen Fireworks

In response to
New York’s 194/8, Dasun Shanaka’s composed 43 off 29 balls provided a platform
for the Orcas’ chase. He rotated the strike effectively during the middle overs
while wickets fell around him. Shanaka’s diligence allowed the big-hitting
Klaasen to take his time early before unleashing mayhem later. By stabilizing
the innings after early losses, Shanaka enabled Klaasen to win the match in
blistering style.

 

Trent Boult’s
Four Wickets Not Enough 

as Orcas Prevail

Left-arm quick
Trent Boult undermined New York with an excellent 4/30 spell, removing both
openers early. He returned at the death to take two wickets in the 19th over,
seemingly shifting the momentum back New York’s way. 
However,
Klaasen kept his cool under pressure. Needing 18 off 12 balls, he struck
back-to-back sixes off Boult to deflate New York’s hopes. Despite Boult’s
sterling effort, Klaasen’s composure and power nullified the dangerman.

 

Klaasen, Anwar
Fifties Set Up Orcas Successful Chase

Nauman Anwar’s
51 off 30 balls in the Orcas’ chase strongly supported Heinrich Klaasen. The
pair quickly added an invaluable 82 runs for the third wicket after early
trouble. While Klaasen stole the headlines, Anwar’s half-century was also
pivotal in seizing the initiative back from New York’s bowlers. Their
counterattacking partnership knocked the stuffing out of the New York attack,
which had threatened to restrict Seattle.
