KARACHI: Khyber Pakhtunkhwa fought gallantly on the fourth and final day of the Quaid-e-Azam Trophy 2nd XI tournament final against Southern Punjab but the match ended in a draw which meant the latter clinched title on the basis of their first innings lead here at the State Bank of Pakistan (SBP) Stadium on Friday.

Chasing 484, KP were 379-7 in their second innings when bails were drawn. They had resumed their second innings at the overnight score of 11 without loss. Opener Mohammad Mohsin scored 123 off 163 balls with the help of 11 fours and two sixes to lead his side’s charge towards the target.

Left-handed middle-order batsman Khushdil Shah scored 51 off 45 balls which included three sixes and one four. Top-order batsman Musaddiq Ahmed contributed 50 off 82 balls. The task of scoring 474 runs on the final day proved to be beyond the KP batsmen as they lost wickets at regular intervals and had to eventually settle for a draw.

Veteran left-arm-spinner Zulfiqar Babar took three wickets for 90 runs after registering figures of five for 56 in Khyber Pakhtunkhwa’s first innings.

Southern Punjab posted 369-5 and 333 all out. Khyber Pakhtunkhwa accumulated 219 all out in their first innings. Shozab Raza and Rashid Riaz supervised the match. Mohammad Javed was the match referee.
