Shaheen Afridi’s bowling men put a stop to cruising Islamabad United mainstays to win it for their franchise in a last-over thriller. The match started off as some mundane cricket match and ended on a nail-biting last over.

Fakhar, Abdullah and Brooks played knocks of 38, 44 and 37 to register 174 runs for Lahore Qalandars. In reply, Munro and Shadab thrashed the Qalandars bowlers to lay a solid foundation for their franchise but their efforts went in vain when both the batters lost their wickets and no other member rose up to the occasion. Shaheen and co were able to defend 40 runs in the last five overs with eight wickets still remaining.

But Islamabad batters can’t be blamed much as the opposition bowlers were just too much for them. Shaheen, Rauf and the youngster Zaman Khan put the ball to perfect use to restrict the boundaries. Team Islamabad was still eyeing the win when only 9 runs were needed in 6 balls but Zaman Khan had other plans in mind. He used his gun bowling to incapacitate the batters, preventing all ways of hitting a boundary.

Twitter is all praise for the Lahore Qalandars, especially Zaman Khan. Here is what they are saying.
