Hey guys! Enjoying thrillers of Pakistan Super League 2016? Well, here is another one between Lahore Qalandars and Quetta Gladiators. It’s been an superb contest to watch between both the teams and definitely, you should not miss this one.
The 8th match of the tournament between Lahore Qalandars and Quetta Gladiators is been more than a inspiration, till now. Lahore Qalandars lost two matches earlier and Quetta Gladiators have won 3 matches consecutively. When both the teams come face-to-face, you’ll say “Qalandars won’t win against Gladiators”, but let me tell you what happened in the match.
Lahore Qalandars batted first and this time, they were looking more energized and confident. Their openers, Azhar Ali and CS Delport began their batting fantastically, but Azhar Ali’s wicket was taken. Though, when Umar Akmal came on to the crease after Azhar Ali, nobody actually imagined what is going to happen and what he is going to do. Umar Akmal became a nightmare for the bowlers of Quetta Gladiators, and both Umar Akmal and Delport played aggressively brutal innings against the bowlers. Umar Akmal played a astonishing knock of 95 off just 40 deliveries against the Gladiators, which helped Lahore Qalandars to set the target of 195 against them. It is the much highest target of the tournament so far.
Well, when the 2nd innings began, it was too much anticipation from Luke Wright and Ahmed Shehzad this time. However, they didn’t stayed for too long against the bowlers of Lahore Qalandars. It really showed that Lahore Qalandars were a tough side for Quetta Gladiators. Only Sarfaraz Ahmed and Mohammad Nawaz played well against Lahore Qalandars, but that didn’t helped them to chase the target and take the victory because no other batsman stayed for too long on the crease. Lahore Qalandars won the match by a big margin of 63 runs against the so-far dangerous team of the tournament.
