Pentangular Cup, 5th round, 4th day

Friday, March 14, 2008

NWFP 664 for 6 (Hameed 300, Shafiq 181, Yasir 51*) beat Baluchistan 308 (Bin Nasir 149*, Maqsood 60, Waqar 4-47) and 345 (Bin Nasir 133, Maqsood 70, Yasir 5-106, Waqar 4-71) by an innings and 11 runs

Backed by a mammoth total, thanks to a maiden triple hundred from Yasir Hameed and 181 from Asad Shafiq, NWFP completed an innings-and-11-run win over Baluchistan in Peshawar.

Yasir Shah and Waqar Ahmed shared nine wickets to bowl Baluchistan out for 345, out of which Saeed Bin Nasir scored 133, his second century of the match. Faisal Imran scored 40 and helped add 34 for last wicket , but he became Yasir's fifth wicket for 40 in the second session.

Baluchistan went into the final day still 113 runs behind NWFP, who scored 664 for 6, and lost regular wickets. Yasir took three quickly and Waqar snapped up two, including Bin Nasir, before Yasir sealed a big win. Apart from Bin Nasir's twin hundreds, and two half-centuries from Sohaib Maqsood, there was little Baluchistan could take from this match.
