F.P. Report

RAWALPINDI: The Peshawar Zalmi on Friday defeated the Lahore Qalandars by 16 runs in a 12-overs-a-side match after rain delayed the start of the match.

Zalmi’s young talent Haider Ali stood out with his 34-run innings from 12 balls. He smashed four sixes during his innings. 

Banton gave a good start to the Zalmi innings, smashing 34 runs from 15 balls. Kamran Akmal started out dangerous but was dismissed for 14 runs off a Shaheen Afridi delivery.

The hapless Qalandars ended up losing their third straight match of the season and are now starting at the possibility of another year rooted to the bottom of the table.

Earlier, Zalmi finished with 132-7 courtesy Tom Banton and Haider Ali’s identical 34-run innings each.
