Wins for Sialkot and Karachi Dolphins
A combined bowling effort set up Sialkot Stallions' five-wicket win against Lahore Eagles' at the Rawalpindi Cricket Stadium. Bilawal Bhatti took three wickets and the rest of the bowlers chipped in to restrict the Eagles to a modest 129. Saad Nasim, batting at No.9, was the top scorer with 27. Sialkot lost Imran Nazir early but Shakeel Ansar and Shahid Yousuf made useful contributions to lead Sialkot to victory.
Khalid Latif's 88 set up Karachi Dolphins' 32-run win over Rawalpindi Rams at the same venue. Put in to bat, the Dolphins managed 171 for 4, thanks to Latif's contribution. He shared stands of 75 and 72 with Asad Shafiq and Rameez Raja respectively. Rawalpindi's pursuit of the target was stalled by Sohail Khan and Faraz Ahmed, who took three wickets apiece. Naved Malik was the top scorer with 59, but he lacked support.
