Punjab slumped to their second loss of the Pakistan Cup following their 4-wickets defeat versus Khyber Pakhtunkhwa. Punjab’s bowlers were once again mediocre as they failed to make a fist of things and were unable to stop KPK’s charge led by Khushdil Shah.
Nevertheless, Punjab were able to find great positives in the batting department as compact right-hand batsman Iftikhar Ahmed bludgeoned the KPK bowling department for a magnificent century. Finding the boundary frequently with his express timing and crisp strokes, Iftikhar smashed 105 off 101 balls.
Having already represented Pakistan in 4 international games across formats, Iftikhar has a shining domestic record that validates the immense amount of potential he possesses. Averaging in excess of 50 in List A cricket, Iftikhar continues on his merry run of making runs for fun.
