Group I

Peshawar jumped to second place with an innings win over Lahore Ravi in Peshawar. Israrullah's double hundred was the highlight of the match which gave Peshawar a 279-run lead in the first innings.

Lahore opted to bat but managed only 239 despite good starts from Abdul Wahab Dar (40), Jahangir (51) and Tanzeel Altaf (52). However, Azizullah's four wickets restricted them before Israrullah registered a career-best 222, and along with Adil Amin (51) and Mohammad Idrees (86), charged them to 514.

Lahore were batting to save the game but could not succeed as Jibran Khan took 4 for 32 and the Lahore captain Jahangir Mirza's 72 went in vain.

Group II

Faisalabad were left one wicket away from victory and had to settle for a draw with Hyderabad who remained at the bottom of the table.

Chasing 305, Hyderabad ended the last day on 244 for 9 with a fighting fifty from Lal Kumar (59*). Asked to bat, Faisalabad scored 323 with a hundred from Ammar Mahmood and a fifty from Imran Ahmed (60) as Nasir Awais (6 for 80) ran through their tail. The Hyderabad batsmen managed starts but not any big scores as Imran Ahmed took 4 for 42 and Faisal Athar (53) took them to 287. Faisalabad built further on their lead with a hundred from Shahid Siddiq (107) but the absence of any substantial scores from their lower order kept their lead to 304.

Hyderabad lost wickets regularly because of Salman Ali (4 for 86) and Naseer Akram (3 for 49) but Haris Khan, Mir Ali (35) and Kumar prevented a defeat.
