Match 23: Peshawar Zalmi vs. Lahore Qalandars

After deciding to bat first, Peshawar Zalmi got off to a flyer. Saim Ayub dealt the world-class Lahore bowling attack with disdain and hammered 68 runs in just 36 balls. The opening partnership was 107 runs in 10.4 overs. Babar Azam(↓8%) anchored the innings with a 41-ball 50. Tom Kohler-Cadmore provided the required flourish at the end, and Lahore were asked to chase down 208 runs. Shaheen Shah Afridi(↑52%) bagged 4 scalps, while Haris Rauf, Rashid Khan(↓5%), and Zaman Khan got 2 wickets each.

In contrast, the Qalandars had a nightmare start as they lost 4 wickets for just 21 runs. Shaheen Afridi(↑52%) promoted himself yet again. He and Hussain Talat were going nowhere, as 158 runs were needed on 64 deliveries at one stage. But the two southpaws then launched an extraordinary attack. The next 43 balls went for 85 runs as Lahore looked for an unlikely win. Shaheen got out after scoring 52 off 36, while Talat smashed 63 off 37. Sikandar Raza tried with a 7-ball 20, but the task was too big. Lahore Qalandars were all out for 172, and Peshawar Zalmi won by 35 runs.


Turning Point of the Match


The only way Qalandars could have chased this target was by getting a solid start. Wahab Riaz got the wickets of Fakhar Zaman(↓9%) and Sam Billings on consecutive deliveries in his first over. Those two balls pretty much killed the game.

Islamabad United 209 for 8 (Faheem 51 & 1/38, Shadab 44 & 2/26(↑132%)) beat Multan Sultans 205 for 5 (Shan 75(↑50%), David 60) by 2 wickets.
