Southern Punjab won their second match on trot as they handed Central Punjab a six-wicket defeat at the Gaddafi Stadium on Thursday.

The Aamir Yamin-led unit chased the target of 155 with an over spare due to excellent half-centuries from Tayyab Tahir and Khushdil Shah.

It was the fifth over which set the momentum for the run chase when Hasan Ali, the Central Punjab captain, was smashed for four fours in an over, which brought 19 runs.

Mohammad Imran, who made 24 off 17 and was dismissed in the ninth over, hit three of those.

Tayyab and Khushdil denied Central Punjab bowlers any further breakthroughs and they went on to stitch 92-run stand before the former was dismissed in the penultimate over.

Tayyab’s 68, included eight fours and two sixes, while Khushdil was unbeaten on 51 off 36 (eight fours).

Southern Punjab were 67 for three after 10 overs. The match was defined in the next five overs as they brought 54 runs.

It was Hussain Talat’s second half-century in as many matches that dragged Central Punjab to 154 after they were asked to bat first.

The all-rounder staged a brilliant recovery with a carefully crafted 68 off 47 – which went down as his third score of 50-plus in the tournament.

Central Punjab faced early blows when Southern Punjab captain Aamer Yamin and pacer Naseem Shah accounted for openers Kamran Akmal and Muhammad Akhlaq in the first two overs. Saif Badar followed them in the fourth over to leave Central Punjab tottering at 30 for three.

Shoaib’s dismissal brought an end to a 98-run stand. Hussain was dismissed by pacer Mohammad Imran in the next over and no other batter made any notable contribution from there on.

Zia’s next two victims were Faheem Ashraf (three off four) and Wahab Riaz (four off six) as the left-arm pacer finished with the figures of four for 40.

Last five overs brought only 28 runs at the loss of three wickets for Central Punjab.
