HBL PSL successfully concluded in Lahore. Congratulations to Lahore Qalandars on winning the final HLB PSL 8. Better luck next time to Multan Sultans. Played well throughout the PSL Season 8. Closely-fought nerve-shredding contest that went right down the wire!
Shaheen Afridi blasted off, and his counter-attacking approach yielded him 44 runs off a mere 15 deliveries, it was a good captain knock that gave Qalandars a standard total on this pitch. Mirza Baig and Fakhar Zaman both got starts but just when they tried to cut loose, they were dismissed by Ihsanullah – who wasn’t at his belligerent best tonight – and Usama Mir respectively.
Abdullah Shafique played a gem of innings on the big night, adding 65 runs, and thereon Multan Sultans roared their way back into the game by removing Sam Billings, Ahsan Hafeez, and Sikandar Raza in single figures.
Qalandars’ progress was beset by the loss of these wickets in quick succession but then Shaheen Afridi played an absolute blinder and galvanized the team. The skipper was the catalyst behind scripting the title win! Zaman showed heart, valor, skill, and composure when it mattered the most and choked Sultans.
