After making an appeal for caught behind, Akif Javed received Mohammad Rizwan’s first and important wicket in the second half, but the skipper could not get the bat.
On 59 runs, the Shadab Khan could break the Sohaib Maqsood Partnership, and on 25 runs, Shan Masood was able to break the last lbw, thank you for a good long ball that turns in from the outside.
Shadab was able to dismiss an important batsman Rilee Rossouw for a duck after sending Sohaib back to the pavilion.
However, Johnson Charles was able to build a 40-run partnership in 41 runs following the rapid dismissals to help the team rebound in the match.

On the 15th, Johnson shot in a straight direction, but Faheem Ashraf got his first wicket. But iftikhar Ahmed had a good catch.
On the 17th, Faheem took Sohaib’s much needed wicket, which he was released for 59 laps with the help of an Akif Javed catch.
Khushdil Shah did 42 runs in the last overviews with some impressive shots (five six).
Islamabad won four wickets earlier in the match against Multan.
