PSL 2017 Lahore: Peshawar Zalmi won the final and hearts of Lahoris and Pakistanis
HBL PSL Final played at Qadafi stadium Lahore last night. Peshawar Zalimi and Quetta Gladiators displayed their play in front of packed stadium.
Lahore: Gladiators won the toss and elected to field first. The conditions were perfect to bat and Zalmi’s proved it. Gladiators were under pressure since ball one. David Mallan and Kamran Akmal played their shots in all directions.
Finally with the wicket of Mallan and then successive 4 wickets, gladiators came back in match but that was for a short while. Captain Daren Sammy banged them with successive long sixes. And Zalmi score 149 runs after 20 over.
Gladiators were under pressure during all run chasse. It is difficult to chasse in finals. And it seemed true in whole innings of Gladiators. Their 5 wicket fell down in 6 over.
Gladiators never seem to chasse a very chasse able total of 149. Gladiators were one of the strongest team of HBL PSL they chased 200 and defended 200 in very classical way. The shock for the team was their loss of 4 main players and inclusion of 4 new players in the squad. All this made them a shaky team
Team Zalmi beat Gladiators by 59 runs and celebrations begun in a magical way.
Indeed it was a great event in Pakistan. All players specially foreigners enjoyed in Pakistan. In final words Sammy concluded “our purpose was to brings smiles back in Peshawar and in Pakistan at hole and we did it.”
The purpose of PSL final achieved.
