Rizwan declared at 526/9. In an innings of 136 overs, veteran pacer Sohail Tanvir and captain Imad Wasim bowled only 13 and 16 overs, respectively, raising questions about their fitness. As a results Shadab Khan, ended up bowling 44 overs. In response, Northern lost one wicket for 109 at the end of the day. Afaq Raheem fell to Junaid Khan. While under-19 star Haider Ali and Umar Amin were resolute and kept the bowlers at bay.

In the third game, Southern Punjab posted 467, thanks to 243 n/o from Sami Aslam. Adnan Akmal, fell early today to Waqas Masood.  Aamer Yamin smashed a 67 ball 64 to push to score along. However, the tail failed to wag and left Aslam stranded 7 runs short of 250. Waqas Masood and Hasan Ali picked up 4 and 3 wickets respectively. Azhar Ali and Ahmed Shehzad survived a scare or two and took Central Punjab to 47.

Having posted mammoth scores, Sindh, Khyber Pakhtunkhwa and Southern Punjab would be hoping that the pitches open up a little bit and help their spinners.
