(Sehwag XI )Diamonds vs (Afridi XI)Royals 2nd T20 Full Highlights Ice Cricket Challenge 2018 | Shahid Afridi Royals vs Virender Sehwag Diamonds ll Cricket On Ice 2nd Match Full Highlights

Jacques Kallis struck an unbeaten 90 as Shahid Afridi's Royals defeated Virender Sehwag's Palace Diamonds by eight wickets in the second and final T20 to complete a 2-0 whitewash.

Sehwag's XI put up a formidable score of 205/5 in 20 overs that Afridi's XI chase with 20 deliveries to spare.

The Diamonds once again won the toss and elected to bat first on an artificial turf carpet laid out on the perfectly laid out snowfield.

They faced a couple of early jolts and were reduced to 15/2 after just 2 overs. Howver, Sehwag (48) and Andrew Symonds got together and steadied the innings.

Symonds had a slow start but he was later able to hit boundaries with much ease. His unbeaten 67 and a late attack by Mohammad Kaif (57) helps the Diamonds reach 205.

Abdur Razzaq was once again the most successful bowler with three wickets while Daniel Vettori and Grant Elliot chipped in with a wicket each.

Chasing 206, Matt Prior was sent back to the pavilion early but from then Kallis topped it all with a brilliant 90 off just 37 deliveries. During his big knock, Kallis hit 13 boundaries and four sixes.

Along with him, man of the series - Owais Shah stepped up once more with a quickfire 43.

Artificial surface proved to be difficult for the bowlers to bowl at and only former India bowler Zaheer Khan and T20 world cup star Joginder Sharma were the most economical bowers for the Diamonds.
