 Pakistan Super League 8: Multan Sultans register thumping 56-run victory over Peshawar Zalmi

A collapse from Peshawar Zalmi sees them slide to their alternate-biggest Pakistan Super League defeat ever. Rilee Rossouw’s red-hot form continued on Friday as his blistering 75 off 36 anchored Multan Sultan’s to a comfortable 56-run palm over Peshawar Zalmi at the Multan Cricket Stadium. The left-hander smoked 12 fours and two sixes as Multan Sultans posted the loftiest score of this edition – 210 – after being asked to the club before Peshawar Zalmi sailed out for 154 in 18.5 overs.

Rossouw arrived in the middle at the 7.2 overs with the scorecard reading 54 for one. Though Shan Masood stuttered to his 20 off 25, Mohammad Rizwan’s free-flowing innings assured that the hosts ’ run rate stayed at par. Rizwan made 66 off 42 – speckled with nine fours and a six – before he was undone by a wronger one from left-arm wrist incentive Sufiyan Muqeem. It was after this gate that Rossouw cut loose and began the rush. He added 75 runs in just 35 balls with David Miller, who made 23 off 14, and his superlative knock ended on the last ball of the penultimate over when Salman Irshad hit his aft leg as he tried a rear reach.

This was Rossouw’s alternate half-century in the HBL Pakistan Super League 8 in numerous matches. Kieron Pollard kept the meter going, bouncing Wahab Riaz for six and two fours in the last over, which was marred by two no-balls and fielding setbacks, and added 19 runs to the Multan Sultans ’ total. The big West Indian made 15 not out of six.

Peshawar Zalmi needed a flying launch and they got that with Mohammad Haris dispatching Khushdil Shah and Sameen Gul for three sixes – two were hit of successive balls off the ultimate – in the first two overs and contending his side to 22. Multan Sultans, still, struck gold in the fifth over when Ihsanullah, the idol of Multan Sultan’s palm against Quetta pugilists, got Babar Azam out LBW.

The gate brought Saim Ayub on the crinkle, who drove Ihsanullah for four with a noble cover drive. He smoked him for a six over deep fine leg ultimate in the over and brought Peshawar Zalmi back into the contest.

What followed next must have pleased the Pakistan justice suckers and is a good auspice for the public cricketing setup. This brace of these youthful cricketers – Saim is 20 and yet to make a transnational debut, while Haris, who lightened up the T20 World Cup in Australia, is 21 – put 47 in 4.2 overs with their high-quality force of strokes.

Saim came into this event after an atrocious National T20, where he guided Sindh to the title by scoring 416 runs at an inconceivable strike rate of 155.22. The left-hander was the alternate stylish batter in the event behind Khyber Pakhtunkhwa’s Sahibzada Farhan, who had made 13 runs more.

Saim conjoined Carlos Brathwaite for a towering six over long-on at the launch of the sixth over, but the moment of the innings came on the first ball of the seventh when he played a no-look film for a six over fine leg off Abbas Afridi. Haris would treat Abbas with another outside at the end of the over.

Abbas, still, had his vengeance of feathers when a blend-up saw Haris in the middle of the pitch and his direct megahit transferred the right-hander reverse to the kiosk after scoring 40 off 23 with four sixes and a four.

Saim held his end, but the lattices continued to fall from the other end, and with a massive aggregate on the board, the pressure continued to mount. Saim, still, went on to score his demoiselle HBL PSL fifty with a 37-ball 53( three sixes and as numerous fours) before he was undone by Usama Mir, who sailed exceptionally for his three for 22 in four overs.

Ihsanullah( three for 24) and Abbas( two for 33) gutted up the remaining fur order from that point as Multan Sultans, the finalists of the last edition and the winners of 2021, sailed to their alternate palm in the event and to the top of the points table.
