Shoaib Akhtar stars in Dawdon’s day of glory

Have your say

Hosts Dawdon saw off neighbours Seaham Park to win the 3D Sports Durham Coast League 15/15 trophy by four wickets in yesterday’s finals day.

The star of the show in Dawdon’s semi-final win over Murton was Shoaib Akhtar, who crashed 90 from just 70 balls, an innings that included nine fours and four sixes and which helped propel his side to an imposing 137-2.

And Akhtar hoisted two sixes and three fours in a blistering 44 as Dawdon eased to a four-wicket final win with three balls remaining.
