Resuming on their overnight score of 25-0 on Day Two, Anjuman crumbled once again and were bowled out for just 125.
This, after managing only 97 in the first innings. Yesterday, Mushir Khan (27) and Farhan Shaikh (30) were the only two decent contributors with the bat as Al-Barkaat's left-arm spinner Saud Mansoori weaved his magic. Mansoori finished with figures of 4-36 in the second innings complementing his five-wicket haul from the first.
Chasing 153 for a win and a place in the final, Al-Barkaat already have three of their batsmen back in the pavilion and need another 83 to win today.
