A dominating all-round display by Shahzaib Hasan helped Port Qasim Authority thump National Bank of Pakistan by nine wickets in the opening Group B match of the Ramadan Cup in Karachi. Shazaib dismissed the dangerous Kamran Akmal as National Bank were looking to accelerate, then smashed four sixes enroute an unbeaten 68 as Port Qasim overhauled the target with 14 balls to spare.

Chasing 151, Shazaib and Port Qasim captain Khalid Latif gave the team a quick start, bringing up the fifty in the fifth over of the innings. Latif was dismissed after an opening stand of 60, but Shahzaib continued to attack, while Khurram Manzoor stayed solid at the other end. The two put up a 94-run stand in 11.4 overs, with Shahzaib doing bulk of the scoring. National Bank's Raza Hasan and Usman Qadir were economical in their spells, but the other bowlers were not able to put any pressure on the batsmen.

Earlier, Akmal, the National Bank captain, had revived the team with a 37-ball 47 after the openers had fallen cheaply. National Bank had elected to bat, but were immediately on the back foot losing their openers in the first four overs. But apart from the 79 Akmal, together with Aqeel Anjum, put up for the third wicket, their were no notable contributions.

You guys got it wrong. Shahzaib Hasan didn't bowl. It was Shahzaib Ahmed who got two wickets. Please correct it.
