He smacked 54 off just 27 balls with eight fours and a six before getting out in the 13th over. On the other hand, the last increase into the score was awarded by Lewis Gregory who smashed an unbeaten 19 off 8 balls to propel Peshawar Zalmi into 170/6 after 15 overs. The Gladiators had their openers Jason Roy and Shane Watson and the duo did just the same. They included 45 runs for the opening wicket in less than five overs Hasan Ali got the better of the latter. Roy, meanwhile, timed the ball beautifully at the other end. Ahmed Shehzad struggled to rotate the strike but the England international didn’t allow the run-flow stem.
Wahab Riaz breaks the back of the chaseRoy scored 45 off only 26 deliveries and was bluffed by Yasir Shah who castled that the batsman. Shehzad’s travails ended following squandering 17 balls for only 10 runs and since’s Roy’s dismissal, there was no momentum into the Gladiators’ chase. Ben Cutting and Mohammad Nawaz entertained for a brief period but there have been abandoned having a bit too much to do. Wahab Riaz and Rahat Ali didn’t allow the middle-order cut loose from the death overs. They returned with the figures of 3/21 and 2/34 in their various three-over spells as the Gladiators could only attain 140/7 in 15 overs. This loss will damage the winners as they are currently in fifth place with six points after 7 matches. The Zalmi, on the other hand, climbed to the third position after this victory.
