Rizwan Haider struck 45 off 35 balls to provide the finishing touches to a confident chase of 256. Earlier, Aqeel Anjum anchored the Hyderabad innings with a steady 81 but they lost regular wickets to slump to 115 for 4. A couple of quick fire 20s from Mir Ali and Kashif Bhatti, at a strike-rate of over 200, raised the tempo towards the end.
Quetta Bears' bowlers did a magnificent job of defending a small total and secured a four-run win against Peshawar Panthers in Karachi. Khalil Ahmed was the star, scalping 4 for 34, but he was well supported by his team-mates, who struck regular blows while keeping the run-rate in check, and they succeeded in bowling Peshawar out for only 149 in 44.2 overs. The finish was tense because Hamad-ul-Hasan remained firm and steered Peshawar from 124 for 9 towards the target, before losing last man Bilal Khan in a run out. Earlier, Peshawar's bowlers had also wrecked the Quetta innings, with Riaz Afridi (4 for 29) and Jibran Khan (3 for 35) doing most of the damage. Quetta were reduced to 1 for 3 and 19 for 4 before Taimur Khan's unbeaten 55 in the middle order dragged them to 153.

There were three half-centurions in SSGC's innings as well: the Pakistan Under-19 captain Azeem Ghumman top-scored with 66, while Wajid Ali and Rizwan Ahmed made 57 and 53.

Pakistan Customs had made a sound start - their openers added 55 - before they were jolted when three wickets fell for the addition of one run. A 25-run stand followed for the fourth wicket before three more wickets fell in a hurry once again, this time for the addition of two runs. Aamer Yamin scored 43 to steer Pakistan Customs from 83 for 6 to 178 before the last wicket fell in the 45th over. Fifteen-year old Babar Azam led ZTBL's chase, scoring 68 off 78 balls to ensure victory.
