KARACHI: With a haul of 42 medals including 17 gold, 14 silver and 11 bronze, Pakistan secured second place at the Jubilee Games as the event concluded in Dubai yesterday.

The only country with a greater medal tally than Pakistan’s was Canada, who took home 20 gold, 21 silver and 19 bronze, while Tajikistan finished third with 10 gold, 14 silver and 11 bronze medals to their name.

While the entire 178-strong contingent performed admirably, the highlight surely was Pakistan’s 79-run win over arch-rivals India in men’s cricket final.

The hero of the final was Mir Afzal Baig, who stood out with a majestic 114-run innings, whereas Murtaza Majeed contributed 69 to the team’s winning cause.
