Group I

Mohammad Idrees' second first-class hundred, and seven wickets apiece from the seamers Taj Wali and Azam Khan helped Peshawar rout Bahawalpur by an innings and 140 runs at the Arbab Niaz Stadium.

Idrees struck 18 fours during his 107 to take Peshawar to 312 and secure a first-innings lead of 213. Peshawar's innings was sandwiched between two dismal outings with the bat from Bahawalpur. The visitors were bowled out for 89 inside 31 overs in the first innings, thanks to a five-wicket haul from Azam, and needing at least 213 to avoid an innings defeat, they were dismissed for 83 in the second, with Abdul Rehman's unbeaten 28 at No.10 in the first innings being their highest score of the match.

The defeat left Bahawalpur rooted near the bottom of Group I with just three points from six matches, while Peshawar have secured their berth in the Super Eights by virtue of an outright win.
