Trident Stallions have also booked a ticket to the semi-finals in Season-2 of the Sher-e-Punjab T20 Cup. In the ninth league match, Trident defeated Intersoft Titans by 8 wickets to secure their place in the knockout. Abhay Choudhary played an unbeaten innings of 102 runs off 52 balls, while Gurnoor Brar took 3 wickets. This is the team’s sixth win in 9 matches and the team is third in the points table with 12 points.

In the match played at IS Bindra International Cricket Stadium, the captain of Trident Stallions won the toss and decided to bowl first. Pukhraj Mann came out to open for the Titans and hit aggressive shots. He could only score 20 runs in 7 balls and Gurwinder got him out. After this, the Trident bowlers did not give anyone a chance to recover. In the middle order, Jashanpreet Singh contributed 25, Emanjot Singh 22 and Abhinav Sharma 20 runs to take the score to 145/9 in 20 overs. Fast bowler Siddharth Kaul scored an unbeaten 18 runs in 11 balls.

In response, Abhay Choudhary played aggressive shots for the Trident Stallions, but captain Prabhsimran Singh lost his wicket on 18 runs. Aryan Sharma could also score only 6 runs, but Salil Arora supported him. Abhay Choudhary kept the pace of runs going. He scored an unbeaten 102 runs in 52 balls with the help of 11 fours and 5 sixes. Abhay scored an important century for the team while batting at a strike rate of 196.15.
