Just like the opening day of the game, Central Punjab continued to stamp their authority in their match against Balochistan in the Quaid-e-Azam Trophy. The sturdy unit of Central Punjab ended the day restricting Balochistan to 119-5 after registering a mammoth score of 521-6.
Building on the batting heroics of skipper Azhar Ali and Salman Butt, spinner Zafar Gohar took advantage of the situation to portray his batting mettle. The 24-year old batted with great determination to end up mustering his maiden first-class century. Zafar has always been an able batter, but this time he went a step ahead to cross the three-figure mark.
After posting a momentous start of 237 runs, Central Punjab stumbled a bit as they lost 5 quick wickets to get reduced to 310-5.
However, Zafar joined Salman Butt to arrest his team’s collapse and shared a 205-run stand to ensure that Central Punjab ends the day having an upper hand in the game.
Zafar was extremely delighted to achieve this landmark as he took to Twitter to share his feelings. Knowing his overall skills and dearth of good spinners in Pakistan, Zafar could become a great addition to the Test team if he continues to perform like this.
