4 Teams Leading, 2 following in the PSL-6

New talent emerging in heated performance

Karachi Kings, Peshawar Zalmi, Islamabad United, and Lahore Qalandars are each leading with four wins as yet (by Wednesday, March 03), Multan Sultan and Quetta Gladiators can only bag a single victory, as the first leg of PSL is yet to complete.

The ups and downs of PSL will continue with its heat among the players and game lovers.

After what was supposed to be a lax day on Tuesday for PSL (but couldn’t due to unexpected COVID’19 cases), Karachi Kings met in the midafternoon clash with Peshawar Zalmi with the Kings clinching the chase by six wickets.

A target of 188 for 5, the Ravi Bopara displayed a glorious 58 not out whilst Sherfane Rutherford mustered a 32 ball 46 to create yet another sizable total at the National Stadium in Karachi.

However, like previous targets set over the past few days, the Kings were once again able to chase down the target with a magnificent 77 not from Babar Azam whilst Muhammad Nabi posted a solid 67.

Pertinent to note however is the fact that the Kings started off with a struggle, scrambling for some semblance of control at 43 for 3. However, after Babar Azam’s stability-inducing innings when Nabi was caught in the 17th over, Daniel Christian hit a 9 ball 16 runs to assist Babar in sealing the victory for Karachi Kings.

Following a nail-biting finish, the second match Quetta Gladiators versus the Multan Sultan was an equally interesting affair as the Gladiators were able to defend their target of 176 to secure their first victory of the tournament.

With an 81 from the newbie Usman Khan in the opening part of the match, the Gladiators struggled and strove as Saim Ayub, Azam Khan, and Muhammad Nawaz pitched in to post a sizable total to defend.

However, on the run chase, the Sultans were unable to sustain their batting order despite the skipper’s wonderful innings of 66 off 50 balls with 7 fours and 2 sixes.

With James Vince, Shan Masood, and Rilee Rossouw succumbing to the young gun Qais Ahmad, the Sultans witnessed a collapse such that they were bowled out in the final over losing by 22 runs at the end.
