Once again KOKAN -XI proved its metal by winning AJCA Championship 2010 in Jubail, Saudi Arabia. After a convincing victory over arch rival AMACO in the semis, KOKAN-XI went with full confidence in the final match with KAFI on 02-Apr-2010. Captain Aslam Chogle made an aggressive strategy and kept KAFI on the back foot in the whole game. KOKAN -XI restricted KAFI on 149 runs in 18 overs. Nadeem Dalvi was peak of the bowlers who took 3 wickets followed by Rashid Mehmood 2 and Sarfaraz Golandaz 1.

Chasing the target of 150, KOKAN -XI opened the inning with captain Aslam Chogle & Kashif Choudhary . They kept scorecard ticking and built an opening partnership of 43 runs. While wickets started to fall from the other end, Aslam kept his cool and played fantastic cricket. He scored unbeaten 77 runs in just 44 balls with 6 sixes and 3 fours. His inning made it easy for KOKAN -XI to achieve target of 150 runs in 17th over.

Wiining Team with Supporters 

Aslam stated that it was not one players performance which gives a win rather it is a team work. Specially bowling department was too good to restrict the opponent team to a chaseable target. Special to mention that lot of kokni community was present on the ground to cheer-up for the team. Mr. Nawab Mukaddam, Mr. Tariq Bagdadi, Mr. Mubeen Bagdadi, Mr. Hanif Poorkar and many more members of the community make themselves available and encouraged the players. One thing missing in this win was the presence of team coach Mr. Ahmad Gazalli who was away due to his business assignment.
