In their match against Islamabad United on 24 February, Karachi Kings were handed a shock nine-wicket defeat after batting first and posting a daunting 196/3. Sharjeel Khan’s century and his opening partnership of 176 with Babar Azam proved to be of no avail as Islamabad’s batsmen reached the target with 5 balls to spare. Kings’ bowlers, Imad Wasim, Md Amir, Waqas Maqsood, Arshad Iqbal and Md Nabi took a wicket each in the lost encounter.
In their last league match on 23 February, Peshawar Zalmi registered a 6-wicket victory against Multan Sultans at Karachi. Batting first, Sultans scored 193/4, on the back of James Vince’s 84 off 55 balls. Among Zalmi’s bowlers, Md Imran (1/24), Md Irfan (1/41), and Saqib Mahmood (2/36) had wicket-taking returns.
When Zalmi batted, they were off to a great start with an opening stand of 57 between Imam-ul-Haq (48 off 39) and Kamran Akmal (37 off 24). Tom Kohler-Cadmore who joined Haq at the fall of Akmal’s wicket scored 53 off 32 balls with 6 fours and a six, as Zalmi overwhelmed the target with an over to spare. His effort saw Kohler-Cadmore named Man of the Match. The Yorkshire batsman has proved the surprise package of the PSL. In 82 T20 games, he has scored 2250 runs at 30.00 with a ton and 17 fifties, including a top score of 127 and an impressive strike rate of 141.68.
