Final of the National One-day Cup (Pakistan)

After opting to bat first, SNGPL reached 297-6 in their 50 overs with opener Naeemuddin, skipper Misbah-ul-Haq and Khurram Shahzad contributing bulk of the runs. The left-handed Naeemuddin, later adjudged Man-of-the-Match, smashed an 87-ball 90 that included a dozen boundaries. The opener added 89 for the third wicket with Misbah who struck five fours and three sixes in making 87 off 107 deliveries. Khurram then ensured SNGPL get a substantial total by blasting 70 off only 53 balls with the aid of five fours and a brace of sixes. National Bank, despite boasting a number of current players, subsided to a paltry score of 116 inside 30 overs. Skipper Kamran Akmal, the beleaguered Pakistan wicket-keeper/batsman, was the top-scorer for them with a 41-ball 42 (five fours and one six).Paceman Imran Ali inflicted most of the damage on the bankers by returning figures of four for 26 in 7.2 overs. SNGPL will face Sialkot Stallions in Tuesday’s final at the Gaddafi Stadium in Lahore.
