Zalmi thrash Gladiators

From Zeeshan Mirza

KARACHI: Peshawar Zalmi managed to successfully chase the 155-run target set by Quetta Gladiators with nine balls remaining during the ninth match of the Pakistan Super League (PSL) at the National Bank Cricket Arena in Karachi.
Quetta got off to a poor start as they were unable to handle the fine pace attack of Peshawar Zalmi. A slow start hampered Quetta’s chances of posting a big total, despite a battling half-century by Iftikhar Ahmed. Quetta finished with 154/7 with a late flurry from Iftikhar and Odean Smith, Peshawar faltered early on due to a fantastic bowling spell by Mohammad Hasnain. Rovman Powell and Jimmy Neesham steered the run chase with a solid partnership before Dasun Shanaka along with Wahab Riaz finished off the innings to hand Peshawar the win.
