Cricinfo staff

Punjab Stallions 198 for 4 (Farhat 105*) beat Khyber-Pakhtunkhwa Panthers 197 (Said 51, Asad 4-39) by four wickets

A four-wicket haul from medium-pacer Asad Ali and a century from Imran Farhat inflicted on Khyber-Pakhtunkhwa Panthers their third consecutive defeat in the Pentangular One Day Cup, and handed Punjab Stallions a six-wicket win. Wicketkeeper Ahmed Said scored 51, striking three boundaries, but was short of support from the other batsmen as the Panthers were bowled out for 197. Asad was supported by Mohammad Talha and Raza Hasan, who bagged two wickets each.

Farhat ensured the target was achieved with ease, smacking eight fours and two sixes in his 125-ball knock. He remained unbeaten, supported by useful contributions from the middle order to seal victory with 67 balls to spare.
