Punjab eased to a ten-wicket win over Khyber-Pakhtunkhwa at the Gaddafi Stadium in Lahore. After Khyber-Pakhtunkhwa had been bowled out for 241 on the third day, Punjab were left with a target of only 75. Nasir Jamshed and Ahmed Shehzad, the Punjab openers, knocked off the runs in 12.4 overs. Jamshed hammered 11 fours in his unbeaten 50 off 40 deliveries while Shehzad was more circumspect in making 26 off 37. The win was set up by the young left-arm spinner Raza Hasan's maiden first-class ten-wicket haul as he ended with five-fors in both innings.
