Ahmad Nabi and skipper Mohammad Nisar then scored a whopping 30 runs in the 4th over, nearly taking the game away from BEV.
Ahmad Nabi’s outstanding performance of 38 runs in just 16 balls, including 6 sixes, gave DRX the edge they needed to chase down the target in 7.5 overs.
Skipper Nisar remained not out on 30 with 3 sixes and a four, while BEV only managed to take 2 wickets.
With such a dominant win, DRX will be looking to build on this momentum as they move further into the ECL Championship Week.
