BSL All-Star Sunday Recap

The All-star festivities was a phenomenal way to finish off the season. The best of BSL put on a show for all those that turned up to watch. 

Here were the winners from the competitions: 

Pitching Showdown: Tanseer Khawaja with 33 points (New record)

Running Bases Challenge: Omer Dhaduk with a time of 13.32 seconds
Home Run Derby: Rehan Ahmad with 16 Home Runs in 4 minutes (Tied record)

The All-Star started off in a competitive affair until the Ansaar blew the game open in the 6th inning with a 7-spot and followed that up with 7 runs in the next two innings. The Muhajir tried to mount a comeback but never could put together a big inning. The Ansaar came away with a 22-10 victory. The most anitipated event of the night was the Youngin's vs the Oldtimers (over 30) game. The game was a see-saw affair unlike last year's blow out and things started getting chirpy. The game went to extra innings after both teams left the bases loaded and scored no runs in the 7th inning. Omer Chaudhry drove in two runs in the 8th while the Oldtimers stranded the tying run at 2nd to take the win 20-19.
