Want to be a professional cricketer?
So it’s decided who will face Quetta Gladiators in Lahore for Pakistan Super League Final this coming Sunday. Clinical Peshawar Zalmi defeated Karachi Kings in 3rd qualifying game by 24 runs. Kamran Akmal scored a brilliant ton to put a commendable score on the card. Peshawar Zalmi never gave any chance to Karachi Kings. Kamran Akmal and English county player David Malan gave Peshawar an explosive start and put up 97 runs partnership for the opening wicket. After the first wicket partnership, Peshawar was looking to touch 200-mark.
Peshawar Zalmi looked in mood from the first bowl itself, Kamran Akmal in his ton exploded 6 fours and 7 sixes and became the lone centurion of Pakistan Super League 2017. Chasing 182 runs in Dubai with batting lie consists of Chris Gayle, Kumar Sangakkara, Shoaib Malik and Keiron Pollard everybody would have thought of this game going to the wire, but Wahab Riaz and English All-rounder Chris Jordan contained these big names. They both together 8 over gave just 50 runs and picked up 6 wickets.
Now PSL’s next stop is Lahore where Quetta Gladiator and Peshawar Zalmi will take on each other for the championship. Most of the foreign players denied visiting Pakistan for final so it will be interesting to see the which team combination franchise will prefer.
