When Nightwatchmen came into bat, they started brightly as both Altaf and Yaser took the attack to the Tawheed openers. The Nightwatchmen were comfortable with the run rate up to the eighth over, but as wickets fell the run rate required climbed. Yaser bowled straight and fast to dash the hopes of the Nightwatchmen.
