Babar Azam was the only entertainment for Karachi fans against Peshawar Zalmi

Last night’s game between Karachi Kings and Peshawar Zalmi ended in disappointment for the Kings’ followers, but Babar’s heroics with the bat offered them some solace. Even though the franchise took to the match with a winner’s attitude but it faded away soon as Peshawar Zalmi weathered the storm and turned the tide on their side.

Batting first, Peshawar Zalmi’s openers put their bat to good use giving the team a decent start. Despite wickets continuously tumbling down, Shoaib Malik’s experience and patience aided the team and they put a target of 174 on the board.

Karachi Kings’ innings on the other hand had a shaky start. Losing two early wickets including Sharjeel Khan, their main power hitter, destabilized the team. Babar and Ian Cockbain then put on a show of fierce hitting but the display of power was momentary as Cockbain lost his wicket. After that, no one could rise to the occasion except for Babar Azam who did not let go of any opportunity to hit.

The Kings had a disappointing end but the skipper’s prodigious batting offered some relief to the hurting hearts of the franchise followers. The lone man army put his best foot forward to clinch victory but luck wasn’t with the 27-year-old as the team could not cross the finish line. For the Babar Azam fans, his 91 run innings was a treat for the sore eyes. Here’s what the followers are saying about the captain’s knock last night.
