Nauman, Shakeel put Punjab in trouble
LAHORE - NWFP bowlers Nauman Habib and Shakeel-ur-Rehman rattled Punjab batting on the opening day of the fifth round match of the RBS Pentangular Cup here at the Gadaffi Stadium on Tuesday.

These two pacers along with Junaid Khan, Younis Khan and Aslam Qureshi reduced Punjab to 238 for eight in 72.5 overs. Only player who kept thing tightly held for Punjab was Azhar Ali. The opener was holding the front against all odds and the time the day was called off, he was batting at 116.

However, the poor condition of the host team can be gauged from the fact that 29 was the second highest score made from the whole bating line up and that came from Mansoor Amjad.
