Hi everyone! Hope you’re well! Today is been another big day for PSL 2016 as two big contests took place; Islamabad United vs Karachi Kings and Peshawar Zalmi vs Quetta Gladiators. Let’s discuss the first one (Islamabad United vs Karachi Kings), we’ll discuss about the second one (Peshawar Zalmi vs Quetta Gladiators) later in our next post.
So, the 6th match between Islamabad United and Karachi Kings turned out to be an interesting and tough one, definitely jaw-dropping one. Islamabad United performed really well today as they kept up with their batting, but their score was quiet low, but defendable. They batted first and put up the target of 133 for the Karachi Kings to chase.
Somehow, the openers did bit well for Islamabad United to take the score that much, while the others including Misbah, did almost nothing.
In the 2nd innings, Misbah got injured and gone off the field, while Shane Watson was given the authority to lead the team in the field. Karachi Kings lost their early wickets, which shows that Islamabad United were quiet improved with their bowling and fielding efforts. But still there was some massive hope as RS Bopara was on the crease. The match turned interesting in the last over, in final 2 deliveries of Shane Watson, 10 runs required with Bopara on strike. He hit an amazing SIX, which just made the fans of Islamabad United almost emotional, but Shane Watson did really well in the last ball of the game. Finally, Islamabad United won the match by 2 runs, made a great comeback in the tournament.
Truly, an inspiring contest between the both teams, almost touch-n-go! If you missed to watch the match, watch full-match highlights below:
