Mushfiqur’s Joburg Buffaloes suffer defeat
Mushfiqur Rahim could not produce any heroics as Joburg Buffaloes suffered a seven-wicket defeat in their Zim Afro T10 league game against Cape Town Samp Army at the Harare Sports Club on Sunday.
Bangladesh's wicketkeeper-batter Mushfiqur, who hit a match-winning unbeaten 23-ball 46 to beat Taskin Ahmed's Bulawayo Braves last Friday, could only make an unbeaten 16 off 13, featuring two boundaries, as Joburg Buffaloes posted 96 for five in 10 overs.
Cape Town Samp Army made light work of the chase, thanks to a rapid 24-ball 54 from opener Tadiwanashe Marumani, as they cruised home in 7.4 overs.
Meanwhile, later at the same venue, Taskin did not feature in Bulawayo Braves' 25-run defeat against Durban Qalandars.
