Hi everyone! Hopefully, you are enjoying all the matches of Pakistan Super League 2016. Today, it’s been another exciting game and personally, i just loved it too. This T20 format based tournament is an absolute thriller and a huge entertainment it’s been so far. Scroll down to see what was too much exciting today!
The 9th match played between Islamabad United and Lahore Qalandars was just terrific. In the 1st innings, Lahore Qalandars did well with their batting again, almost performed like the last one, putting a huge target on board. They set up the target of 167 for Islamabad United, and it’s pretty much defendable.
In the 2nd innings, Islamabad United got to chase that big target, but it turned as a piece of cake for them when an aggressive-momentum took place. The openers Shane Watson and Sharjeel Khan were just smashing the ball towards the boundaries like it’s not a big deal; looking for big shots again and again. They were successful against every single bowler and both of them stayed with the opening partnership of 153. Pretty amazing, right?
Besides, the opposition was too bad with their fielding efforts as Shane Watson was dropped around 2 or 3 times, which just made more chances for him to move on with his tremendous batting. Finaly, Shane Watson was caught behind by the keeper and Lahore Qalandars just took a wicket, but guys, damage has been done. Shane Watson played an incredible captain’s knock and his partner Sharjeel Khan was playing spectacularly too. Both the openers were smashing back-to-back sixes with no-mercy. Very joyous and entertaining batting we have seen today. Sharjeel Khan finished the game with two back-to-back sixes and Islamabad United won by 8 wickets. Russel’s wicket was also taken, but that didn’t took-off the pressure from the bowling team. It was all over!
