Sultans aim to continue unbeaten as PSL resumes today


LAHORE: The Pakistan Super League (PSL) will be resumed in Lahore today evening after two days break. Struggling Peshawar Zalmi will face undefeated Multan Sultans, who aim to continue their unbeaten line of the seventh edition of PSL.

Today’s encounter will be the second time both teams will be up against each other in the ongoing PSL. In first match Sultans convincingly defeated Zalmi by 57 runs in the first round at National Stadium Karachi.

The Mohammad Rizwan-led side have beaten all the other teams — Karachi Kings, Lahore Qalandars, Quetta Gladiators, Peshawar Zalmi, and Islamabad United — in the PSL 2022.

In the last fixture, defending champions Sultans handed a mammoth 223-run target to former champions Peshawar Zalmi.

Sultans’ reached the huge total courtesy Mohammad Rizwan’s terrific 82 runs, Tim David’s sensational 18-ball fifty, which is the second-fastest half-century in the history of PSL, and three huge sixes in the last over from Khushdil Shah.

Imran Tahir and Shahnawaz Dahani were able to take three wickets, while Blessing Muzarabani and Abbas Afridi took a scalp each.

Meanwhile, the Zalmi were able to make just 165 runs for the loss of eight wickets. Zalmi didn’t have a good beginning to the mammoth 223 run-chase, as they lost opener Kamran Akmal with just 24 runs on the board.

Opener Hazratullah Zazai played a good knock of 41 runs, while all-rounder Ben Cutting scored 52 runs in a fiery inning, with other batters failing to score big.

Skipper Wahab Riaz went to the cleaners as he conceded 55 runs in four overs, England’s Saqib Mahmood conceded 37 in three overs.
