In the 7th match of the ongoing Pakistan Cup 2019, Iftikhar Ahmed scored a magnificent hundred to take his team home.
Yesterday’s knock of Iftikhar Ahmed was his second century of the tournament and the
Iftikhar’s 109* off 89 included 6 fours and 6 sixes. The Federal Areas led by Mohammad Rizwan scored 321 in the first innings where Ahmed Shahzad (74) and Israrullah (96) were the top performers. Sohaib Maqsood also chipped in with a handy 55 to his name.
In reply, Khurram Manzoor and Kamran Akmal provided the Punjab team with an opening stand of 47 and both of them fell soon after.
After that, Sami Aslam (81) and Iftikhar Ahmed (109) took the game away from Federal Areas with a strong partnership of 116 runs.
Sami Aslam was replaced by Saad Ali who took the opportunity with both hands and formed another handy partnership with the man of the match Iftikhar Ahmed. Saad Ali also played extremely well for his 76 taking just 50 balls to do so.
