Fakhar Zaman smashes 106 in 171 chase to knock over Karachi Kings
| A PSL classic ensured Lahore Qalandars got their first points of the season |
Fakhar Zaman blew hot and cold against Lahore Qalandars’ archrivals Karachi Kings, but he was absolutely sizzling against them. Lahore Qalandars won by six wickets, scoring 174 for 4 (Fakhar 106, Umaid 2-30), beating Karachi Kings by 170 for 7 (Sharjeel 60, Haris 3-33).
A PSL classic ensured Lahore Qalandars got their first point of The opener scored his first PSL century, tearing apart the Kings’ bowling attack to give Qalandars their first win of the season and hand the hosts their third consecutive defeat. He had smashed 106 of 60 deliveries by the end of the PSL classic innings, and his team only needed seven more runs to win by six wickets in the final over.
This game continued a pattern that has characterized PSL matches in Karachi since the previous season:the chasing team’s victory. Kings were put into bat, and Sharjeel Khan’s characteristic tenacity in his innings helped them get off to a fast start. Although Babar Azam once more lacked the same fluency on the other end, his 60 off 39 got the Kings going. This was yet another opening partnership from the Kings after a successful weekend in the PSL;
The two had scored 84 runs in ten overs when Mohammad Hafeez bowled Sharjeel with a lovely offspinner. The rest of the order, on the other hand, failed to take advantage of the established platform. Joe Clarke and Mohammad Nabi failed once more to maintain Sharjeel’s pace, and Qalandars began to chip away with cheap overs and wickets as the overs progressed.
Rashid Khan caught Babar for 41 runs out of 33 balls, which was too many balls for the Kings to use to reach 200 runs.Due to Haris Rauf’s three late wickets, nobody outside the top four reached double figures, and Qalandars entered the changeover needing 171 to win with momentum on their side. Due to the fact that this was not a team that methodically ran down a target, it remains to be seen how a Qalandars batting lineup handles a large chase;it was one man taking on 11, and prevailing. As he crunched a dozen fours and hurled four sixes away, Fakhar was content to be fed the strike from the opposing team.
When Kamran Ghulam scooped one to Nabi at midfield or when Nabi had Abdullah Shafique hole out, he barely seemed to notice. He had the steely determination of a man who would fetch every last run on his own if necessary, and he was completely focused on the target.
Kings had the asking rate up to ten after frontloading the cheap Nabi and Imad Wasim, both of whom were bowled out in the 14th over. However, they never appeared to be able to get rid of the man who was capable of walking to such a target.With seven overs to go, Qalandars actually required 75, yet when Fakhar took Imad on with two sixes off the initial two wads of his last finished, Qalandars’ hold on the game started to fix.
Fakhar broke all the boundaries, and Samit Patel won the singles. That was the deal, and both parties fulfilled their obligations. Fakhar scored his first PSL hundred by sprinting a couple to midwicket. He then sliced one to third man, but his work was done. Patel hit a few fours to wrap things up.The Kings are still looking for their first victory, despite Qalandars’ first victory.
Fakhar Zaman ton prolongs Karachi Kings’ misery as they remain winless in the 2022 Pakistan Super League. A stunning century from Fakhar Zaman has extended Karachi Kings’ misery. When Zaman scored a magnificent century, the Babar Azam-led Lahore Qalandars defeated Karachi by six wickets and opened their points tally, squelching all of their hopes of opening their account. By scoring 84 for the first wicket in just 10 overs, Sharjeel Khan and Babar Azam provided Karachi with a strong foundation once more.Sharjeel kept the scoreboard ticking to reach his half-century while Azam was not at his best, but Mohammad Hafeez bowled Sharjeel.
As they fought their way back into the contest, Qalandars had a great opportunity to take advantage of the dismissal.Azam lost his wicket for 41 at a crucial point, whereas Mohammad Nabi never got going and was run out for 15. Joe Clarke hit a shaky 24-run homer, but Qalandars kept hitting at regular intervals, and no other batter reached double digits.
Karachi still had 170 runs to defend and open their tally, despite the fact that they were in a good position at the halfway point to add a few more runs to their total. By getting rid of Abdullah Shafique and Kamran Ghulam for single-digit scores, they did get off to a good start in the chase.
However, Zaman was at his most destructive and remained by his side throughout the battle. He kept finding the boundary frequently while opening the batting to keep up with the asking rate. Hafeez proved to be an effective ally for him as he tried to restart the chase.To relieve the mounting pressure, the veteran repeatedly hit Nabi, but Imad Wasim quickly disqualified him.
As Zaman hit Imad for consecutive sixes to reclaim his lead, Karachi was unable to capitalize on the opening.He wanted Mohammad Ilyas to bowl an over to end Karachi’s hopes and score his first PSL hundred.Even though he was let go toward the end for 106, Qalandars finished with four deliveries left.
Brief scores: Karachi Kings 170/7 in 20 overs (Sharjeel Khan 60, Babar Azam 41; Haris Rauf 3/33) lost to Lahore Qalandars 174/4 in 19.2 overs (Fakhar Zaman 106, Samit Patel 26*; Umaid Asif 2/30) by 6 wickets
