Karachi: In a thrilling match at the State Bank Ground, the Dynamites team showcased their prowess with outstanding performances from leg-spinner Ghulam Fatima and all-rounder Aliya Riaz.

Fatima's four wickets for 17 runs in eight overs and Riaz's three wickets for 19 runs in five overs restricted the Blasters to a mere 94 runs in 37 overs.

Captain Sidra Amin then sealed the victory with unbeaten 58-run innings, leading her team to a resounding nine-wicket win in just 16.4 overs.

The Blasters' decision to bat first proved costly as they lost their first two wickets with only one run on the board, eventually finding themselves struggling at 25 for four.

The Dynamites' bowlers dominated the game, with six Blasters' batters getting dismissed for zero. Opener Ayesha Zafar and Saba Nazir showed some resistance with scores of 37 and 27, respectively.

Ghulam Fatima's exceptional performance earned her the Player of the Match award, as she accounted for the dismissals of Ayesha, Aleena Shah, Anam Amin, and Zaib-un-Nisa.

Aliya Riaz contributed crucial wickets, taking down Zunaira Shah, Iram Javed, and Saba.

Captain Sidra Amin and Khadija Chishti provided a solid start with a 63-run opening partnership, leaving no chance for the Blasters' bowlers to defend their low total.

Sidra's unbeaten knock of 58 off 55 balls, featuring nine fours, guided Dynamites to a comfortable victory.

Bismah Maroof (13 not out of 14) provided support as they successfully chased down the target.

Next, the Blasters will face the Challengers in the second one-day match scheduled for Thursday in the Pakistan Cup Women's Cricket Tournament.
