Nida Dar had a rare off match as she failed with the bat on Friday and was too expensive with the ball in the two overs bowled conceding 23 runs.

Kainat Imtiaz took 1/17 in her four overs and was easily the team’s best bowler during the first match and she scored 17* off 20 while batting in top six.

The Challengers are expected to register their first win of the tournament by defeating the Dynamites.
