Raza Hasan completed a five-wicket haul to dismiss Sind for 331 in their second innings, setting Punjab a small target, which they chased with seven wickets in hand at the Gaddafi Stadium.

Sind began the fourth day on 227 for 5, leading by only 26 runs. Saeed Bin Nasir, who was unbeaten on 55, was dismissed for 82, and Sarfraz Ahmed made 64. The tail did not contribute much and Raza Hasan took the two wickets he needed to finish with 5 for 73. Punjab were left facing a target of 131 with the better part of the day remaining.

They got off to a rocky start, losing both openers early, and were reduced to 17 for 2. Mohammad Yasin, however, scored an unbeaten 70 and held the chase together. His partnership of 64 for the third wicket with Mohammad Saad, who made 30, ensured victory for Punjab.
