Live Scores - Pakistan Cup 2022 - 13th Match

Current Form Southern Punjab:

Southern Punjab won their last match authoritatively against Northern by 67 runs.

Northern won the toss and elected to bowl first. Southern Punjab found themselves in a lot of bother when they were 3 down for just 41 runs. This is when the talismanic skipper Agha Salman came to the crease and attacked the bowlers fiercely right from the word go. He scored more than 50 percent of the team’s runs as he made an impressive 171 off 134 balls. His innings included 18 fours and 6 maximums. On the back of his tremendous knock, Southern Punjab reached a commendable total of 284 in their innings.

Chasing 284, Northern could not get off to a brilliant start as they lost 3 wickets for just 68 runs. Northern batters could never gain the right momentum throughout the innings and Northern never really looked into the game. The wickets fell in a regular fashion and that created pressure on to the middle order. Rohail Nazir and Mubasir Khan fought hard with their partnership of 62 runs for the 5th wicket. After these two were dismissed, it was only a formality for the Southern Punjab bowlers as Northern got bowled out for 217, losing the match by a significant margin of 67 runs. For Southern Punjab, Khushdil Shah picked up 2 wickets for just 29 runs.

Current Form Balochistan:

Balochistan have won their last match against Central Punjab by 8 wickets.

Balochistan won the toss and elected to have a bowl first. Central Punjab lost 3 wickets for just 34 runs as Amad Butt and Khurram Shahzad wreaked havoc in the top order. Qasim Akram then revived the innings with the support of Raza Ali Dar. Qasim Akram made 63 off just 76 deliveries. On the back of his resilience, Central Punjab got to a total of 179 before being bowled out in the 38th over. For Balochistan, Akif Javed picked up 3 wickets.

Chasing a small total of 180, Balochistan openers looked quite assured in the middle and smashed the Central Punjab bowlers to all parts of the ground. Imran Butt made an impressive 100 off 128 balls to win the match for his team in the 37th over with 8 wickets in hand.
