being asked to bat first, Southern Punjab got off to a horrible start as they
lost three key wickets including Captain Sohaib Maqsood (0) with just 34 runs
on the scoreboard.

Imran and Khusdil Shah brought Southern back in the game with a partnership of over
60 runs.

Imran went
on to score a magnificent half-century. He scored 54 off 46 balls, while Shah
departed after scoring 24.

Hassan Khan
played a 25-run cameo later in the innings before the team bowled out for 152
in 19.4 overs.

Imran Khan
Sr. was the pick among the bowlers for the defending champions as he claimed
figures of four for 28 in his four-over spell.

He was well
supported by Shaheen Shah Afridi, who claimed three wickets in the game.
