Sind finished with a substantial first-innings total of 403 at the National Stadium in Karachi, despite adding only 87 more runs to their overnight score for the loss of seven wickets. Overnight centurion Aqeel Anjum (126) was dismissed without making a run on the second day. Captain Yasir Shah did most of the damage to the lower order for Khyber-Pakhtunkhwa Province (KPP), taking four wickets to restrict Sind.
Sind then came good with the ball, leaving KPP struggling on 160 for 6, to sign off day two in charge of proceedings. So far, no one had made more than Shoaib Khan's 47 for KPP. Zulfiqar Jan (35) and Yasir Khan (1) will resume batting on the third day.
Federal Areas (FA), at the Diamond Club Cricket Ground in Islamabad, were back in the middle with the bat by stumps on day two, with an overall lead of 32. They had bowled out Punjab for 226 - conceding a mere three-run first-innings lead - and finished the day on 29 for no loss.
Earlier in the day, Punjab resumed on 31 for 2, and went on to play 79.1 overs in the innings with Haris Sohail (77) and Usman Salahuddin (43) being the top-scorers. Sohail Tanvir finished with six wickets, helping restrict Punjab to a negligible first-innings lead.
