ISLAMABAD-ZTBL were in all trouble against State Bank of Pakistan, as they finished day one at 143-7 in their first innings in the Patrons Trophy Grade-II 2017-18 first semifinal played here at Diamond Ground on Tuesday.

Earlier after winning the toss, ZTBL skipper decided to bat first despite a heavy downpour last night. His decision failed to bring desired results, as they were soon in trouble and never recovered from the early setback. Saad Nasim made unbeaten 48. Umaid Asif captured 3 for 38 and Nazar Hussian 2 for 9.

In the second semifinal played at Pindi Stadium, Karachi Port Trust (KPT) scored 2-1 in five balls against Ghani Glass. Earlier, KPT won the toss and opted to field first. Ghani Glass were bowled out for 241 in 80.1 overs with M Zaheer scoring 81 and Tayyab Tahir 50. Husban Javed captured 5 for 69, while Rashid Hanif and Babar Rehman took 2 wickets each conceding 58 and 64 runs respectively.
