The Yellow storm Peshawar Zalmi won the toss and chose to bat first.

1st innings

  • Multan huddles after the batting ends, with Rizwan addressing.
  • But what a performance by Peshawar. Babar came out intending to be strong tonight, and he and Saim Ayub contributed 134. They were 115/0 after 10 overs, and Babar was on fire.
  • Ihsanullah’s two shots stood out, a straight drive and a rocking pull following the ball past mid-wicket. Multan was in big danger as the teenager equalled Babar’s stroke for stroke.
  • Nevertheless, Abbas Afridi hauled Multan back with a four-wicket haul as wickets dropped, including Babar’s.
  • Nonetheless, Mohammad Haris and TKC’s appearances, in which they simply came out blazing, aided Peshawar’s solid finish.
Babar Azam 73(39) Abbas Afridi 4-39
Saim Ayub 58(33) Usama Mir 1-27
Tom Kohler-Cadmore 38(18) Anwar Ali 1-66
Mohammad Haris 35(11)

Second innings

  • Peshawar has been unable to defend 240 or higher for the second time in two matches.
  • It was mowed down with 10 balls to go in the last match, but just 5 tonight.
  • Rossouw and Pollard put on a batting display until Anwar Ali and Usama Mir closed it.
  • Multan dropped two early wickets, but Pollard was pushed to the top of the order and, together with Rossouw, just unloaded their electricity on the unfortunate bowlers.
  • Pollard ran down the spinners and smashed Mujeeb for a hat-trick of sixes, whereas the left-hander proved lethal with his leg-side dominant strokes.
  • Both hitters reached their fifties, and when Pollard collapsed, Rossouw completed his century off 41 balls.
Rilee Rossouw 121(51) Azmatullah Omarzai 2-62
Kieron Pollard 52(25) Wahab Riaz 1-32
Anwar Ali 24(8) Mujeeb Ur Rahman 1-46

Man of the match

Rilee Russouw, what a player. If not for his power hitting display, Multan could not have done it. With his impactful performance, his team is able to become the second team to qualify for the play-offs.
