University of Central Punjab crowned Red Bull Campus Cricket Pakistan Champions 2016

After narrowly losing the 2015 final to Jinnah Government College, Karachi, the University of Central Punjab Lahore (UCP) went a step ahead to win the Red Bull Campus Cricket 2016 Pakistan Champions title with an overwhelming victory over former champions Karachi University (KU).
UCP’s captain Ali Tipu led from the front with an astonishing bowling spell to ensure that his team successfully defend their 118 run total accumulated on a sluggish DHA Sports Club, Moin Khan Academy, Karachi pitch that had plenty of moisture under the top following heavy rains in the days leading up to the tournament decider.
Batting first, the UCP batsmen were content at occupying the crease and accumulating runs rather than aiming for a score that would have been tough to post due to the nature of the pitch.
The KU outfit that had won two previous Red Bull Campus Cricket finals at the same venue, were undone by the disciplined line and length of the UCP bowlers who maintained a stranglehold on the proceedings from the get go.
At the post match presentation an elated Tipu thanked his coaches and team for their unflinching support that led them to their crowning glory.
Tipu and his team now travel to Sri Lanka to compete in the World Finals of the Red Bull Campus Cricket where they will rub shoulders with the winners from seven other countries in the annual international tournament that has become an incredible attraction for campus cricketers of the participating nations.
