Mohammad Rizwan's second List-A hundred helped Khyber-Pakhtunkhwa Fighters to a 73-run victory against Federal United in Karachi. Fighters, opting to bat, made 323 for 6 from their 50 overs. Their innings was built around Rizwan's 114, as well as his 100-plus stands for the second and third wickets with Israrullah and Shoaib Malik. Israrullah scored 72, with eight fours, while Malik's 68 featured 10 fours and a six.

Federal United began the chase shakily, as early blows reduced them to 60 for 5 inside 15 overs. The team's middle order put up a stern resistance, with Ali Sarfraz (60) and Zohaib Ahmed (36) putting up 84 for the sixth wicket, but Fighters kept chipping away at them with wickets at regular intervals. Junaid Khan, the pick of Fighters' bowlers, cleaned up the team's tail on his way to collecting 3 for 41, as Federal United were bundled out for 250 in 47 overs.
