Sports is where teamwork matters and everyone contributes all together. Teams work with calm and cool head if the opposition is not easily getting themselves surrender. However, there are heated moments when one of the players could not hold himself together and lets out all the frustrations, whether on his teammates or at the opposition.
We look at the top three fighting moments in Pakistan Super League (PSL) across sixth seasons.
1. Wahab Riaz vs Ahmed Shehzad
In the first ever edition of Pakistan Super League, there was a fight to remember between Quetta Gladiators’ batsman Ahmed Shehzad and Peshawar Zalmi’s Wahab Riaz. The incident happened in the fifth over in the match, where Wahab Riaz was introduced into the attack and a length ball was delivered. Ahmed Shehzad hit one over mid wicket for a mighty six.
The next ball, Wahab Riaz came around the wicket and ball another length ball, slightly fuller to Ahmed Shehzad, who tried to repeated the previous shot. However, he missed it and the ball clipped the top of the off stump. Wahab was escatic and came close to the batsman, where words were exchanged and pushed each other off. The Peshawar Zalmi teammates and umpire came in to stop them. It is still the most vicious moment in PSL.
2. Imam ul-Haq vs Shane Watson
It was the final of PSL 2019 between Quetta Gladiators and Peshawar Zalmi. Pesharwar Zalmi set a below par target of 139 for Quetta Gladiators. They start the chase off well, before Shane Watson was run out by Umar Amin in the third over. Zalmi opener Imam ul-Haq was walking besides Watson and exchanged some words with him before showing him the way back to the pavilion. His teammates stopped him as Watson continued to walk back.
Quetta Gladiators won the final for the very first time in PSL.
3. Sohail Khan vs Yasir Shah
It was an interesting moment in PSL. The game was between Lahore Qalandars and Quetta Gladiators. When Mohammad Nawaz came to strike, the field was being set by bowler Sohail Khan. He was calling out Yasir Shah at leg side, but the leg spinner wasn’t hearing him. Sohail threw the ball straight to Yasir and called him out and both bowlers were in a heat of a moment.
