Hey folks! Maybe it’s a bit of a disappointment because such tournaments are really inspirational, but their conclusion has to come to decide the winner of the tournament. Well, it’s a Final match of Pakistan Super League between Quetta Gladiators and Islamabad United. It’s been an terrific tournament, very joyous and entertaining for everyone. So, I personally have been very keen to watch such outstanding cricket tournaments and it’s a great joy. Now, scroll down to see which team triumphed this first Pakistan Super League!
In this final match of the tournament, Islamabad United won the toss and elected to field first. Misbah Ul Haq is been very clever with his captaincy. Haha! So, Quetta Gladiators batted first and they seemed really good, but their early wickets put quiet a pressure on them, which was recovered because Ahmed Shahzad and Kumar Sangakkara played classy innings. They were the set batsmen on the crease which just putted huge pressure on the bowling team. Though, the scoreboard was progressing up along with wickets falling down. Batsmen were doing their best to put a well defendable target on the board and put opposition under pressure because they’ve got good bowling side as well. Quetta Gladiators gave the target of 175 to Islamabad United. Overall, Gladiators have been fantastic so far and now let’s see how Islamabad United fights for the victory.
In the end innings, Islamabad United took a aggressive start with the bat and they were looking pretty calm and energized. But this time, their hard work paid them off. The way they performed in previous matches and now this; it’s truly inspiring. Well, Dwayne Smith and Sharjeel Khan started aggressively. But this time, it was all about Dwayne Smith, and Sharjeel Khan held himself a bit backwards; he was playing defending innings to keep his wicket. While, Dwayne Smith was smashing the ball around the ground and looked very confident and dangerous for the bowlers. He was playing risky innings, then finally, Gladiators got a sigh of relief when they got Sharjeel’s wicket. But trust me, it wasn’t over! Brad Haddin came on to the crease and it just doubled the pressure on the bowlers, because Smith and Haddin were merciless for the bowlers. They were extremely brutal for the bowlers! The game wasn’t even close for Gladiators to win because United had wickets in hand and they were pretty tremendous without taking any pressure of the scoreboard run-chase. WOW! Islamabad United beat Quetta Gladiators by 6 wickets with 8 balls even remaining, and they became the Champions of #HBLPSL2016. AMAZING! I know nobody have thought about them to win the game because they lost many matches earlier in the tournament, but it’s all hard work that pays off, Dude! Overall, this tournament is been terrific and amazing. We have enjoyed every moment of it here at SPORTSBEEM!
