Islamabad 179 (Afaq 3-12) and 221 for 5 (Imad 52*) drew with Peshawar 103 (Iftikhar 5-28) and 439 for 9 dec. (Israrullah 155*)

Islamabad batted out for a draw on the final day against Peshawar to secure a draw. Chasing 364 to win and all day to get the remaining 312 runs, they were always scoring too slowly to threaten the target and contributions from all top seven batsman denied Peshawar.

Imad Wasim was the only one to go on to a half-century, finished unbeaten on 52. He shared a partnership of 64 that ended Peshawar's hopes. Zohaib Ahmed proved his stickability, facing 99 balls for just 15 runs.

Peshawar took a while to break through as Raheel Majeed made 36 in 56 balls - by far the liveliest innings on the card - and Shan Masood scored more conservatively for 37 but had hope when they removed two wickets for the addition of only one run to leave Islamabad 106 for 3. Fahad Iqbal then dug in and Imad's knock secured the draw.
