KARACHI Imran Farhat posted fine unbeaten hundred to steer Punjab Stallions to six-wicket victory over KP Panthers in the RBS One-day Cricket Cup here on Sunday night at the National Stadium. His 105 not out (eight fours and two sixes) took Punjab Stallions to 198 for four in just 38.5 overs after KP Panthers were restricted to 197 in 48. The stylish batsman clinched the man of the match award for his innings. Expected victory over a weak KP Panthers gave Punjab Stallions their first points in three matches. With just one match in hand and four points in account, Punjab Stallions are out of the fray which has become a three-team race between Federal Areas Leopards, Balochistan Bears and host Sindh Dolphins. The two outstation teams have eight points each from three matches while Sindh have same number of points from one match less. KP Panthers preferred to set the target instead of chasing one when they chose to bat first after winning the toss against Punjab team. However, their batting resources were not strong enough to cash on the advantage. Except Ahmed Said who slammed 51 in 85 ball innings, no other batsman could play better innings with bat. Ahmed Said hit just three fours in his subdued innings. Sajjad Ahmed 24 and Yasir Shah 21 were the other main run-getters. Bowler Asad Ali proved spanner in the Panthers batting works. He captured four for 39. Muhammad Talha and Raza Hasan took two wickets each. Imran Farhat took one for 44. Winless Punjab Stallions took a cautious approach and decided to bat with their heads down instead of rushing to get to the winning target which they reached two overs to go. Registering first win was more important for the Punjab team and they did it with patience instead of throwing the bat at everything bowled at them. Imran Farhat was the only batsmen who took attacking approach which made victory look easy for Stallions. He played a role of anchor and kept the scoreboard moving with regular boundaries and an occasional six. Nasir Jamshed, who had hammered a ton just two matches ago, seemed to have lost his batting touch and for the second time, he got out for a low score. He made just 11. Muhammad Salman added 21 and Aamer Sajjad 18. Muhammed Ayub scored 27 in 32 balls hitting two fours. Yasir Shah took two for 39 for KP Panthers.
