Cameron Delport made his way to score 71 runs off 55 balls to lead.
Delport struck wight boundaries and a six before he got caught at deep mid-off on slower delivery from Hasan Ali who picked two wickets conceding 24 runs.
After being asked to bat first, United lost early wicket of Luke Ronchi when young leggy Ibtisam Sheikh got his man. He scored just nine runs. Philip Salt and Cameron Delport built the momentum thereafter scoring a partnership of 46 runs but it was Sheikh once again producing a breakthrough. This time he hunted Philip Salt with the help of Andre Fletcher who took a blinder at boundary ropes. Salt made 28 runs.
Wahab Riaz bowled a perfect reverse swinger to thrash the stumps which sent Chadwick Walton back home after scoring 22 runs off 14. Asif Ali then raced the score for United by scoring quick 23 runs off 13 balls but Umaid Asif took him at long on.
Hasan Ali, Wahab Riaz, and Ibtisam Sheikh shared two wickets apiece while Umaid Asif took a wicket.
