The 17th match of Pakistan Super League between Peshawar Zalmi and Quetta Gladiators was today played at Sharjah Cricket Association Stadium, Sharjah.
PSL is now heading towards the playoff, and with every passing game the excitement is being added to the Pakistan’s very first International cricket league. The league which took off on February 4 showcases star cricketers from around the globe and is similarly fascinating as other successful leagues or cricketing events around the globe are.
This game was a crucial one as Zalmis were having the chance to top the points table after defeating the Gladiators, and they equally availed this chance as their skipper Shahid Afridi crushed the Quetta Gladiators with his superb bowling.
Boom Boom Shahid Afridi, this time with ball made the difference as he took 5 wickets just after giving 7 runs in 4 overs, marking this as his best T20 figures so far.
Gladiators won the toss and opened up their innings well as openers Ahmed Shehzad and Asad Shafiq played aggressive cricket but later on Wahab Riaz came into attack and took two wickets in his first over.
Later, Afridi’s magnificent spell restricted QG to a low total of 129.
PZ while chasing such an easy total just lost two wickets and comfortably chased the total with still having 8 wickets in hands.
