Adeel Pirzada’s 88 led Shane Moss to 213-6, as Syed Ifthekar and Morshadur Rahman also picked up wickets for Scintilla.
Arafat said: “This win is a confidence boost for us. The boys played well and showed no fatigue despite fasting for so many long hours.”

“This was a big game and the boys came up trumps,” said Riadh. “We thrive on pressure and our opponents presented us with a massive challenge.”
