The two times PSL champions Islamabad United took on Multan Sultans for the opener of HBL PSL 2021.
Islamabad United, being one of the most successful PSL teams that have ever played the tournament, had a poor outing in their previous season as they were placed last. They managed only three wins.
Multan Sultans were in great form last season as they topped the group. However, they only managed third place as they could not further qualify.
Islamabad United won a great match last night thanks to an all-round performance from Lewis Gregory. We will take a look at the top moments of game three of this season.
PSL top moments
1. Fantastic Lewis’ incredible chase show
Perhaps one of the best performance by a foreigner in PSL. Lewis Gregory picked up two wickets in his spell of 2-31 in four overs. He picked the wickets of James Vince and Khushdil Shah. However, he did a major contribution in chasing the target down. He scored 49 not out from 31 balls and Islamabad were struggling in the chase. This includes 19 runs off Sohail Tanvir that did all but sealed the match for Islamabad United.
2. 40 years young Shahid Afridi
He may have retired from international cricket. but Afridi isn’t getting older. Once again, the star all-rounder struck for his side Multan Sultans as he picked up two wickets for just 24 runs, including a catch and a direct hit to run out Iftikhar Ahmed. How good has he been?
3. Debut to remember
Mohammad Wasim Jnr made his PSL debut and he made a great impact for Islamabad. He picked 3-29 in his completed overs, taking the wickets of Sohaib Maqsood, Shahid Afridi, and Mohammad Rizwan, who was beautifully bowled. It was a dream debut for the young right-arm fast-medium bowler.
