FAISALABAD: Northern’s Musa Khan and Mehran Mumtaz stormed through the Southern Punjab’s (SP) middle order on the final day to aid their side seal a comprehensive 10-wicket win in the first round of Quaid-e-Azam Trophy (QEAT) 2022-23. SP batter Imran Rafiq put up a strong resistance with a valiant 90-run knock amid a dismal show by the lower order as SP were bowled out on 265 in the second innings after the side was forced a follow by Northern on day 3. Southern Punjab avoided the innings defeat with a narrow margin as they managed five more runs than their trail and forced Northern batters to come out on the crease for the second time in the match.

Musa and Mehran bagged three wickets to dismantle the Southern Punjab batting order while Kashif Ali took a wicket. Earlier Mubashir Khan got rid of Souther Punajb openers on day 3. Meanwhile, Balochistan beat Khyber Pakhtunkhwa (KP) by 134 runs in another first-round match as Khurram Shehzad led the charge to bundle out KP in the second inning while chasing a 370-run target.
