PSL top moments
1. Shaheen Afridi’s bursting opening spell
Shaheen Afridi bowled a brilliant opening spell, where he conceded seven runs in his two overs. On the very first ball, he dismissed Imam ul-Haq, nicking him behind the stumps. Shaheen ended with a spell of 3-14 in his four overs and once again, a fast bowler was rewarded the “Man of the Match” award.
2. Wahab Riaz’s ripping wickets
Though the captain of Peshawar Zalmi was smashed 30 runs, he picked up two wickets. Both wickets were pleasing to watch. First of, he dismissed Fakhar Zaman, who managed a top edge and was beautifully caught by Shoaib Malik. Then, the next one was even better. He clean bowled Ben Dunk with a ripping inswinging yorker. That was also reversing into the left-hand batsman.
3. Rashid Khan’s match-winning shot
Rashid Khan was very economical with his figures of 0-14 in four overs, despite not taking a wicket. But his major moment came when he came out to bat. When Qalandars were 109-6, Rashid Khan came out to bat with Mohammad Hafeez. Rashid Khan scored 27 not out in 17 balls, including a slog sweep helicopter six to win the match.
