David Wiese five-fer sinks Sharjah Warriors’ playoff hopes

A sterling five-wicket haul from David Wiese wrecked Sharjah Warriors in the final league match of the inaugural ILT20 that terminated their playoff qualification hopes. Wiese’s performance saw Warriors collapse for a measly 107 in a crucial game and Giants then proceeded to hunt down the target to win by seven wickets.

A target of 108 was never going to intimidate the Giants who polished off 18 of those in the first two overs. Even though Junaid Siddique dismissed the veteran and James Vince in the same over, there were no signs of apprehension in the Giants camp as they got the job done with 21 balls to spare.
