WAPDA, without a point so far, looked certain to achieve their first victory in the Patron's Trophy Grade-I after PWD lost six second innings wickets on the third day of the match at Iqbal Stadium, Faisalabad Wednesday.
After being set a target of 197, PWD collapsed to 79 for six at stumps, according to details available here.
Left-handed all-rounder Kamran Hussain was chiefly responsible for putting WAPDA in driving seat by top-scoring in the second innings and then dismissing PWD openers Bilal Asad (0) and Imran Khan (4) with the new ball.
Resuming at 11 for one, WAPDA were bowled out for 141. Kamran struck 35 off 50 balls while dominating the last wicket partnership of 33 with Faisal Irfan.
Wicket-keeper Zahid Umer followed his first innings' halfcentury with 27.
Medium-pacer Rajesh Ramesh, playing only his second game, returned career-best figures of four for 30. Left-arm paceman Ali Raza claimed three for 26.
