PSL top moments:
1. Sarfaraz Ahmed smashed four 6s
Quetta Gladiator’s captain Sarfaraz Ahmed played the most crucial knock in PSL. His team was struggling at 40 odds for 4. He came to the crease and took his time. But once when he faced spinners, he found the rhythm. Against Iftikhar Ahmed, he smashed four 6s consecutively to push the team’s score further.
2. Paul Stirling going bonkers
If restricting Quetta Gladiators to 157 was not enough, Paul Stirling decided to announce his arrival in PSL. The former Irish captain scored a 21-ball 50 as Islamabad United raced in the powerplay.
3. Shadab’s perfect leg-spinner
Shadab Khan had a difficult PSL personally as a batsman and as a bowler. But one of the deliveries showed the glimpse of the old Shadab. In the 10th over when Ben Cutting was cutting loose, no pun intended, Shadab bowled the perfect leg-spin ball to drive the batsman forward for a drive, only to be missed the ball and get stumped.
