Kamran Akmal 65 puts Lahore Whites on top

A dominating half-century from Kamran Akmal moved Lahore Whites to the top of the table as they crushed Rawalpindi by 28 runs. Kamran hit four sixes and seven fours, with 52 of his 65 runs coming from boundaries, in his blistering 37-ball knock. It came against a Rawalpindi bowling attack that has seen four of its five bowlers play internationally for Pakistan, but Kamran, with capable support from Sami Aslam and younger brother Umar Akmal took the Whites to 178.

Rawalpindi were off to an aggressive start, with Umar Amin and Zain Abbas helping them maintain a run rate around 10 in the Powerplay. But wickets kept tumbling, and in the absence of a player able to play the sort of knock Kamran had for the Whites, Rawalpindi began to collapse. By the end, it had long been a foregone conclusion, with the bowlers, Bilal Asif in particular (2 for 20), helping themselves to wickets and keeping the hosts well away from a sniff of victory.
