Sargodha will need a miracle to avoid defeat against Karachi Whites after they struggled to 190 for four in their second innings on the third day of the Quaid-i-Azam Trophy Grade-I clash at KCCA Stadium here Wednesday.
Skipper Misbah-ul-Haq holds the key for visitors as he survived the wiles and guiles of Test leg-spinner Danish Kaneria to remain undefeated on a watchful 34. Giving him company was Mohammad Aziz with 23.
Kaneria, taking advantage of whatever wear and tear on the placid KCCA track, extracted bounce and turn to claim all the four wickets to fall in Sargodha's innings.
Only opener Mohammad Hafeez was able to counter him with a fair degree of success. He made a well-compiled 80 off 127 deliveries before he unwisely tried to cut Kaneria and perished to a catch at the wicket. Hafeez laced his otherwise excellent knock with nine fours and one six.
Earlier, Karachi Whites extended their first innings lead to 282 by making 451 after resuming the day at 363 for six. All-rounder Arif Mahmood took his overnight 39 to 64 despite running a temperature.
The burly right-hander lashed seven boundaries during stay of 148 minutes and negotiated 121 balls.
Right-arm medium-pacer Umair Hussain turned out be Sargodha's chief wicket-taker with a return of six for 141. However, he was guilty of sending no less than 24 no-balls in his 31 overs.
Umair's opening partner Mohammad Sarfraz, the stocky left-arm pacer, chipped in with three for 132.
