Lahore: Top-order batters Yusra Amir of Karachi, and Lahore duo Eyman Fatima and Saira Jabeen, along with wrist spinner Tania Saeed of Rawalpindi, stood out in the third-round action of the National Women’s One-Day Tournament in Faisalabad on Monday.

Opener Yusra scored an unbeaten 70 off 88 balls with nine fours, aiding Karachi Women in successfully chasing down a modest 133-run target set by Quetta Women with eight wickets and nearly half of the overs remaining. Partnering with Omaima Sohail, Yusra put on 112 runs for the second wicket.

Omaima followed up her bowling performance of two for 22 in Quetta’s 132 all-out in 46.3 overs with a 59-ball 42.

Half-centuries by Eyman Fatima and Saira Jabeen helped Lahore Women post a decent 251 all-out in 50 overs against Multan Women at the Iqbal Stadium.

Eyman struck 14 fours and a six in an 87-ball 81, while Saira Jabeen scored 56 off 60 balls with five fours. Kaynat Hafeez (35) and Noreen Yaqoob (34) provided valuable contributions to help Lahore Women achieve a highly competitive score. In response, Gull Feroza, following her century against Rawalpindi on Friday, once again top-scored with 50 from 51 balls, including eight fours.

In a low-scoring match at the Jawad Sports Complex, Rawalpindi Women successfully defended 76 runs, bowling Peshawar out for 37 to secure a 39-run victory. Wrist spinner Tania Saeed returned match-winning figures of 6.2-2-10-5 and also won the Player of the Match award.

Islamabad: The federal government removed the names of several Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) leaders, including Murad Saeed, from the Exit Control List (ECL) , the sources privy to the development said on Monday.

The decision, approved by the federal cabinet, came on the recommendation of the National Accountability Bureau (NAB).

The notification of their removal from the ECL was sent to relevant authorities.

Those whose names were lifted from the ECL include Khyber Pakhtunkhwa (KP) Chief Minister Ali Amin Gandapur, Ghulam Sarwar, Parvez Khattak, Shafqat Mahmood, Ijaz Shah, Ali Zaidi, Khusro Bakhtiar, Azam Swati, Asad Umar, Omar Ayub, Mehboob Sultan, Fawad Chaudhry, Farog Naseem and Shireen Mazari.

However, the names of PTI founder Imran Khan, his wife Bushra Bibi, Farahat Shahzadi known as Farah Gogi and Zulfi Bukhari remained on the list.

The inclusion of PTI leaders' names on the ECL was based on a request by NAB in connection with a case related to the Al Qadir University Trust, which allegedly caused a loss of 190 million pounds to the national exchequer.

The accusations involved adjustment of Rs50 billion, equivalent to 190 million pounds, received from Britain’s National Crime Agency (NCA) by the former prime minister and others.

The Trust for Al-Qadir University Project was registered by the PTI chief on December 26, 2019.
