Water and Power Development Authority 286 (Zulfiqar 78*, Azmat 60, Sajjad 44, Imran 4-70, Raza 3-86) beat National Bank of Pakistan 164 (Akmal 37, Zulfiqar 4-86, Sarfraz 3-28, Junaid 3-31) and 113 (Jamshed 56, Zulfiqar 3-31, Junaid 3-29, Attari 3-19) by an innings and nine runs
Scorecard

Left-arm spinner Zulfiqar Babar and fast bowler Junaid Khan took 13 wickets between them to propel Water and Power Development Authority (WAPDA) to an innings-and-nine-run victory over National Bank of Pakistan (NBP) in Faisalabad. Zulfiqar backed his bowling performance with a responsible innings of 78 to guide his side to a first-innings lead of 122 runs, which was enough for the comprehensive win.

NBP, after being put in to bat, struggled to put together partnerships, with a 39-run fourth-wicket stand being the highest. Pakistan wicketkeeper Kamran Akmal top scored with 37, as Zulfiqar, Junaid and another left-arm seamer Sarfraz Ahmed bowled NBP out for 164. Akmal's knock was his highest in ten matches across all formats.

WAPDA's reply was strong, thanks to a productive last-wicket partnership of 75 runs featuring Zulfiqar, who scored 78. Middle-order batsman Ali Azmat was the other batsman to score a half-century. Fast bowler Imran Khan took four wickets.

Pakistan limited-overs opener Nasir Jamshed, who scored 56, was the only one to provide some resistance to WAPDA's bowling in NBP's second innings. Eight other batsmen scored in single digits, with two others making 19 and 10, as Zulfiqar, Junaid and seamer Azhar Attari took nine of their wickets to help complete an innings victory.
