Quetta VS Larkana
Venue: UBL Sports Complex, Karachi
Day 3
Result: Match Drawn

Larkana showed amazing resistance on the final day to draw the match. Starting from where they left last evening, 64/4, Quetta declared the innings on 149/8. Taimur Khan scored his second fifty of the match as he remained unbeaten on 54. 8 wickets were shared between Ali Asghar and Shahnawaz Dahani, with both taking 4 each. Having a target of 274 to chase in a very short time, going for the win wasn’t really a good option. They went for the draw and just about managed to get there. It was a very very close shave as they drew the game with only one wicket to spare. Faraz Aziz led the spirited struggle with the bat as he fell in nervous nineties, for his well made 93. It turned out to be one of the closest games of the tournament.
