Rain rules out play on day two
SNGPL 203 for 4 (Hafeez 69, Misbah 42*, Kamran 3-63) v
No play was possible on the second day of the Quaid-e-Azam Trophy final between Habib Bank Limited (HBL) and Sui Northern Gas Pipelines Limited (SNGPL) due to rain and subsequently a wet outfield.
A total of 25 overs were lost yesterday due to bad light and as players took the field for warm-up, heavy rain lashed the entire city forcing the square to be covered. Although the covers did come off post-lunch, rain water had seeped through onto the pitch and the square forcing the umpires to call off play at 3.15pm local time.
Keeping the inclement weather forecast in mind, the Pakistan board has already kept a reserve day in order to obtain a result providing a winner is not declared on first-innings lead over the span of five days.
