Sind 481-8 (Manzoor 144, Alam 85, Rauf 4-130) lead Baluchistan 299 (Haider 81, Sami 3-63) by 182 runs
Sind piled up a 182-run lead against Baluchistan at the Gaddafi Stadium in Lahore, on the back of a fluent 144 from Khurram Manzoor and a 79-ball 85 by Fawad Alam.
Resuming on 65 for 1, Sind slumped to 75 for 3, before their middle and lower order came good. Faisal Iqbal (77) put on a 185-run stand with Manzoor, before quick half-centuries from Alam and wicketkeeper Sarfraz Ahmed (60 not out from 63 balls) put Sind in front. Opening bowler Abdur Rauf picked up four wickets, but was expensive, conceding 5.20 runs per over.
Mohammad Sami, who is yet to get off the mark, accompanied Sarfraz at the crease at stumps.
