Quetta Gladiators captain Sarfaraz Ahmed has won the toss and decided to bowl first against Peshawar Zalmi in the 18th match of the Pakistan Super League – 2020 here at the Rawalpindi Cricket Stadium on Thursday.
Peshawar Zalmi comprehensively beat Quetta Gladiators on Thursday at the Rawalpindi Cricket Stadium, defeating the “Gladiators” by 30 runs and registering their 3rd victory in as many days.
Chasing 171 during a rain-shortened 15-over match at Rawalpindi Cricket Stadium, the defending champions were off to only the beginning they needed as both their openers — Shane Watson and Jason Roy — had wrestled the run rate of 11.4 in check.
However, when Watson departed with the score at 45-1, in walked Shehzad, who had failed in each of his previous three innings and this one was no different. His half a dozen runs over almost two overs saddled Roy with the pressure who took one too many risks and got out.
Then came the decisive 11th over when Shehzad departed, Ben Cutting, did too which was that. Quetta lost by 30 runs. Earlier, Shoaib Malik’s brilliant 27-ball 54 and therefore the young Haider Ali’s 39 alongside contributions from elsewhere had helped Darren Sammy-less Zalmi to a complete of 170-6.
