Qatar won the Asian Cricket Council (ACC) organized under-15 Challenge Cup in Thailand, beating Bhutan by eight wickets in the final.

Qatar stayed unbeaten in the tournament which included teams from Thailand, China, Brunei, Myanmar and Maldives.

“It’s a historic occasion for Qatar and we are proud of the boys’ achievement, “said Manzoor Ahmed, the Qatar Cricket Association general secretary (International affairs and Operations).

“The QCA president M.A. Shahid has congratulated the team on their achievement,” added Ahmed.

Qatar made short work of the Bhutan score of 121 with man-of-the-match Faizan Ahmad scoring 30 runs after having claimed four wickets earlier.

Ali Ishtiaq also excelled in an all-round role, making 32 not out after claiming three wickets in the Bhutan innings, while skipper Taha Mohammad made an unbeaten 34. Ishtiaq was declared the best bowler of the tournament.

Tahir Akram was the coach of the Qatar team, while GulKhan was the manager. “The boys were disciplined and clinical throughout the tournament,” manager Khan told the Gulf Times from Thailand.

“We were confident about our victory from the start and the team proved the confidence was not misplaced,” he added.

“All the boys responded well when the situation demanded, “said coach Akram, who at 21 years is the youngest coach a national side from Qatar has had.
