Qalandars Vs United: Match Enters Into Super Over

Sharjah (March 03, 2018): A super over will be bowled in the match between Lahore Qalandars and Islamabad United as the match drew at the Sharjah Cricket Stadium tonight.

Earlier, courtesy a three-wicket haul of legspinner Yasir Shah, Qalandars restricted United to 121 runs. Lahore batting first in the super over. Brendon McCullum and Fakhar Zaman in the middle.

Sohail Khan bagged two wickets, while debutant Salman Irshad, Mustafizur Rahman and Fakhar Zaman picked one wicket each. JP Duminy scored 34 off 35 balls, while Hussain Talat remained unbeaten on 33 runs for the Misbah-led Islamabad United.

United’s spinner Samit Patel gave the men in red much-needed breakthrough in the low-scoring match by dismissing Qalandars’ openers, Umar Akmal and Fakhar Zaman, in successive deliveries of his first over.

 Debutant Agha Salman played an impressive of 48 off 35 balls, including six boundaries and two sixes, before throwing his wicket on a short-ball of Sami.

The senior fast bowler also took the wicket of Dinesh Ramdin on the 13th over of the game. Fahim Ashraf on the last ball of the 15th over dismissed Sohail Akhtar.

The next to depart were Sunil Narine, Sohail Akhtar and Yasir Shah in the 16th and 17th over of the game. In the final stage of the game, skipper McCullum was dismissed on a run-out.

The Qalandars handed debut to Salman Irshad — a rare and exciting fast bowler out of Kashmir. The equally promising Shaheeh Shah Afridi made way for him.

Surprisingly, captain Brendon McCullum decided to give the new ball to Fakhar Zaman, who is known for opening the batting rather than bowling.

The gamble paid off almost instantly as Zaman bowled out Luke Ronchi on the second ball and bowled an excellent opening over — a sign that the conditions were going to favour the bowlers even more than they generally have in the PSL.
