Arafat takes nine but SBP make 303

Yasir Arafat, who has represented Pakistan in all three formats, put in one of his best performances in first-class cricket, taking 9 for 108 for Khan Research Laboratorie to bowl out State Bank of Pakistan for 303 on the third day at the Rawalpindi Cricket Stadium. It was his second nine-wicket haul in an innings, his best being 9 for 35. However, SBP did put together a good resistance, with Naved Yasin top scoring with 77, opener Shoaib Khan jnr contributing 76 and the lower order chipping in with useful knocks. The other wicket-taker for KRL was Bilal Asad, who dismissed Yasin, the seventh wicket to tall. Arafat, who has the ability to swing and move the ball off the pitch, won the day though it wasn't a one-way street given the SBP resistance.
