But it was Saifuddin who took charge and ensured the tourist would post a fighting tally on the board as the left hander, who picked up four wickets in the second game, went on to remain unbeaten on a run-a-ball 104, featuring five sixes and as many fours. Freeman bagged four wickets for the bowling side. In reply, the home side were bundled out for 225 in 45.5 overs with only Aleck Gregory, who smashed a century, fighting a lone battle for the batting side. He scored 144 off 131 balls before being dismissed by Saifuddin but none of the other batsmen were able to provide support.
