F.P. Report

SHARJAH: Peshawar Zalmi outclass the Karachi Kings and registered a thrashing win in the Pakistan Super League encounter at the Sharjah Cricket Stadium, on Thursday.

While batting first, Zalmi managed to score a fighting total 153 with the help of Skipper Sammy and Haq powered Zalmi to a fighting total of 153 runs after an initial stutter.

Imam ul Haq scored a fifty for his team and later the blistering cameo of Darren Sammy with 24 runs off 10 balls prompted concerns from the Kings’ side.

In reply, Karachi Kings were destroyed by the Zalmi attack especially Hasan Ali vindicated himself as the X factor between both the teams with his four-for 15 spell. 

With his first-ball LBW to Livingston and a run-out of Babar Azam in the very next over, the fast bowler virtually ended resistance from the Kings’ camp.

Later, the bowler had his last laugh with his wickets of skipper Imad Wasim and Muhammad Aamir.

Kings started their PSL campaign on a high when they defeated Multan Sultans in a close contest by seven runs. However, they lost the next game to Lahore Qalandars by 22 runs.
