Qalandars won the toss and chose to bat first.
|LAHORE QALANDARS||PESHAWAR ZALMI|
|Mirza Baig||Mohammad Haris|
|Fakhar Zaman||Babar Azam|
|Abdullah Shafique||Saim Ayub|
|Sam Billings||Tom Kohler-Cadmore|
|David Wiese||Bhanuka Rajapaksa|
|Hussain Talat||Rovman Powell|
|Sikandar Raza||James Neesham|
|Rashid Khan||Wahab Riaz|
|Shaheen Shah Afridi||Saad Masood|
|Haris Rauf||Arshad Iqbal|
|Zaman Khan||Salman Irshad|
- The ball was moving and curving in every spot as Arshad Iqbal and Wahab Riaz moved it about, and the hitters had no idea what was happening.
- When Neesham came on in the fifth over, everything changed. The first ball was going for four, and the hits kept coming.
- Abdullah Shafique, making his first appearance this season, led the early pace, followed by Fakhar Zaman, who had been struggling. Their collaboration established a rhythm, and Fakhar increased his gear after achieving fifty.
- Unfortunately for Fakhar, to go out on 96, Billings, who had just come in to prepare for the game, took advantage of a non-review to add insult to injury for Peshawar.
- Lahore ripped away the bowling and fielding with a vengeance, scoring the 3rd highest total in PSL record.
|LAHORE QALANDARS 241-3|
|Fakhar Zaman 96(45)||Wahab Riaz 2-45|
|Abdullah Shafique 75(41)||Rovman Powell 1-37|
|Sam Billings 47(23)|
- The visitors were always going to have a difficult time with 242. Haris and Babar were both dismissed by Afridi in the first three overs.
- But, Kohler-Cadmore and Ayub played quite well after that, with some eye-catching strokes. They provided their team with a sliver of hope midway through the innings.
- Nevertheless, Peshawar lost both of them shortly after they hit their fifties, barely 7 balls apart. This put them on the defensive, and the hitters that came in died under duress.
- Afridi was the standout with the ball for the hosts, taking 5 wickets.
|PESHAWAR ZALMI 201-9|
|Tom KC 55(23)||Shaheen Afridi 5-40|
|Saim Ayub 51(34)||Zaman Khan 2-28|
|Bhanuka Rajapaksa 24(14)||Haris Rauf 1-38|
