Unbeaten fifties from Khurram Manzoor and Kamran Younis and a three-wicket haul from pacer Mohammad Talha helped Port Qasim Authority beat Khan Research Labs for their third straight win in Group B of the Ramadan T20 Cup. The win puts PQA at the top of Group B with one league game left to play.

Put in to bat, PQA struggled early in their innings, losing their openers to pace bowler Rahat Ali and left-arm spinner Nauman Ali. Those were the only breakthroughs that KRL bowlers could create for the rest of the innings, however, as Manzoor and Younis went on to add 153 runs for the third wicket off just 100 balls. Younis got to his 50 off 37 balls, while Manzoor scored 50 off 44 balls. Manzoor accelerated towards the end of his innings, scoring 85 off 60 balls, with nine fours and three sixes, while Younis scored a 53-ball 70 with eight fours and a six.

KRL's reply was largely centred around Mohammad Yasin's unbeaten 63-ball 80, but the opener did not get much support from the rest of the batting order. Talha took some early wickets to peg the chase back and the lack of partnerships meant that KRL could only manage 151 for 6 off their 20 overs.

Khurram Manzoor should be in the National team by now! Been in great touch for a few years now! Time for him to replace hafeez in the opening slot as he has earned it!
