The Rest 371 for 7 (Sajjad 119, Yasin 93, Sarfraz 67, Rasheed 3-114) against Sialkot

The Rest began their Pentangular Cup on an encouraging note, reaching 371 for 7 on an action-packed day against Sialkot at the National Stadium. They scored their runs at a fair clip and were boosted by a century from Aamer Sajjad, who struck 25 fours in his 119. The Rest were in a spot of bother at 74 for 3, Sajjad stepped up to the task, adding 155 with Naved Yasin, who made 93, and Sarfraz Ahmed - who has been called up for the third Test against Australia. Sarfraz finished the day unbeaten on 67 and his team will bank on him to stretch that score to something more substantial. For Sialkot, Faisal Rasheed picked up three wickets.

Karachi Blues 253 for 9 (Asad 69, Mansoor 50, Hafeez 3-54) against Sui Northern Gas Pipelines Limited

A collective bowling display helped Sui Northern Gas Pipelines Limited take the first-day honours against Karachi Blues at the National Bank of Pakistan Sports Complex. Mohammad Hafeez's offspin fetched him three wickets, and each of the other SNGPL bowlers grabbed at least a wicket each to limit Karachi to 253 for 9 at stumps. Karachi had been struggling at 69 for 4, but useful contributions from Ali Asad (69), Tariq Haroon (41) and wicketkeeper Javed Mansoor (50) helped them recover. Asad and Haroon were involved in an 80-run stand after which the lower order stepped up to add some respectability to the Karachi total.
