Huzaifa Zubair - Report from LCB newsletter

Huzaifa Zubair is a Sefton Park junior player. Below is a report from the LCB newsletter

 

The LCB Under 12s rounded off a fantastic week at Taunton with a comprehensive win over Hampshire to complete a hat trick of wins this year by the Lancashire juniors. 

Hampshire 139 all out (Zubair 3-22, Shetty 3-21);

Lancashire 140-2 off 20 overs (H.Zubair 52 not out).

Lancashire won by 8 wickets.

Hampshire chose to bat but wickets fell at regular intervals. There were exceptional catches by Harry Singh at slip and a one-handed leap by Rees Abbott. Rees also achieved a fine run out with a direct hit.

The Lancashire innings was dominated by a wonderful display of power hitting by Huzaifa Zubair. His 52 came of 31 balls and contained 4 of the biggest sixes I have ever seen in a junior match. It was uninhibited and great to watch. Evan Williams and Harry Singh gave him able support. This is talent to watch.

The boys were excellent all week. They play with freedom and are not scared to take a chance. Much of this goes down to coach Atiq who encourages them to be positive. He now returns to Pakistan but will be a huge loss".
