ISLAMABAD - It would require a miracle for Islamabad to beat SNGPL, as they finished day two at 8-1 in Quaid-e-Azam Trophy 2015-16 round two Pool A match here at Diamond Ground on Tuesday.

Islamabad required another 209 runs for win in next two days with nine wickets still intact. Earlier, Islamabad resumed their first innings at overnight score of 25-4 and were bowled out for 93 in 31.5 overs. Naeem Anjum remained unbeaten at 39. Asad Ali and Sami Ullah clinched four wickets each while Bilawal Bahtti took two. Islamabad thus conceded 89 runs first innings’ lead. Thanks to superb bowling by Shahzad Azam and Zohaib, Islamabad bowled out SNGPL for a meager 127 runs in their second outing. Both Rana and Zohaib captured four wickets apiece.

In Pool B match played at Pindi Stadium, Wapda took decisive 112-run first innings lead against Rawalpindi, as they resumed their first innings at 9-0 and were bowled out for 307 in 80.3 overs. M Saad made 50. Fit and in-form Sohail Tanveer grabbed 4-56 while Mansoor Amjed took 3-18 and Saad Altaf 2-66. Rawalpindi made 4-0 in one over in their second innings and still require 108 runs to avoid innings’ defeat with all 10 wickets in hand.
