Punjab collapse

Nasir Jamshed scored a century in the maiden line of the RBS Polygon One-Day Cup but his team, the Punjab Stallions, collapsed around him to experience a 24-run disappointment against the Northerner Areas Leopards in Karachi. Leopards had been dismissed for 245 and their bowlers were struggling to indorse the direct before a tardy split, during which vii wickets fell for 34 runs, secured victory. Jamshed scored his runs quick too, scoring 101 off only 90 balls, with cardinal fours and a six. He further 45 for the gear gate with his captain Imran Farhat and 114 with Azhar Ali for the third. Justified tho' Ali and Aamer Sajjad, who was lbw to Yasim Murtaza, vanish in intelligent second, Stallions were plant homelike on 187 for 4, with Jamshed comfort at the bend. The crippling surprise came when Murtaza had Jamshed caught with the scotch on 192. Stallions necessary 54 runs with quintuplet wickets in transfer and the follower couldn't see that duty. They unredeemed their net tetrad wickets for one run, collapsing from 220 for 6 to 221 all out. Murtaza was the Leopards' most thriving derby, attractive 3 for 42, while Shoaib Akhtar and Imad Wasim took two apiece. Wasim had bowled the examination over, during which three Stallions wickets - one was a run out - pass. Early in the day Stallions' bowlers had also chipped gone at the Leopards' line-up, winning wickets at patron intervals without allowing a partnership to figure. Umar Amin top-scored with 55 and individual middle-order batsmen got starts but failed to broadcast on. Mohammad Talha took 3 for 38 and Abdur Rehman 2 for 46 to sack Leopards.
