Yesterday was a run-fest at Pindi Cricket Stadium as during the 9th game of Pakistan Cup 2017 both Federal and Balochistan scored 753 runs.

Table toppers Balochistan posted a total of 375 as they elected to bat first after winning the toss. Yet again the opening pair of Fakhar Zaman and Sahibzada Farhan gave the start they are famous for, Sahibzada Farhan scored his fourth consecutive fifty, whereas the captain Fakhar Zaman later raised his bat to celebrate his century. Salman Ali Agha also scored a half century who joined Fakhar after the dismissal of Farhan. Rameez Aziz, Sohaib Maqsood, and Tamoor Khan also contributed with 42, 39, and 42 respectively.

In response Mohammad Hafeez and Sami Aslam provided an anchoring start to federal, Hafeez got out after scoring 68 runs. However, Sami Aslam staged a show that was completely opposite to his image. The test cricketer tested nerves of bowlers and scored at almost every corner of the ground. Sami Aslam scored highest individual runs in an innings in Pakistan Cup 2017. His 169 runs magnificent innings included 15 fours and 5 towering sixes that earned him Man of the Match Award.
