Danish Aziz’s 13-ball 45 helps seal qualification for Karachi Kings
In Karachi Kings Vs Quetta Gladiators Match 29 PSL 6 Karachi Kings beat Quetta Gladiators 162 for 6 (Sarfraz 51*, Ilyas 3-39, Arshad 2-39) by 14 runs to complete the win they needed to make it to the qualifiers. Karachi Kings edged Lahore Qalandars on net run-rate after they swept Quetta Gladiators aside by 14 runs on the final day of the group stage.
Arish Ali’s four-for on debut was in vain for Quetta Gladiators, whoThe Kings needed to defend 32 off the final over with Jack Wildermuth on strike after scoring 176 runs;a delightful bit of symmetry after Danish Aziz completely altered the game’s course by scoring 32 runs off the bowler in their batting innings (in a 33-run over).The Kings scored a total that was too much for the Gladiators, who finished the season with only two wins in ten games, thanks to that blitz, a 45 from 13 balls.
Naseem goes off, Danish goes boom After the Gladiators’ Naseem Shah received the ball to begin the 19th over, he began limping right away.The ball ended up going to Wildermuth, who had struggled earlier on and struggled once more. He could barely get a few steps into his run-up, possibly due to cramp on a hot day. Wildermuth eventually won the ball.
Danish took complete control after receiving an inside edge for four on the first pitch and hitting the subsequent four pitches for six.Danish was able to hoick it over the long leg boundary, so the final one came off a slower ball that turned into a beamer.
At that point, it was 29 off four balls, and all of a sudden, it looked like there might be six sixes in a row, as well as an over that would cost 41 runs.Wildermuth might have been pleased that there were only four of those deliveries.However, the match had changed, going from 136 for 5 in 18 overs to 176 for 6 in 20. A pursuit that won’t ever take off
The Rulers started their safeguard with commander Imad Wasim and Mohammad Amir, who went for a joined seven runs.The Gladiators never appeared to challenge the bowling until the very end, so that seemed to set the tone right from the beginning.Although Sarfraz Ahmed’s unbeaten 51 off 33 was impressive, neither he nor anyone else in the middle order appeared to be capable of breaking the shackles in the middle overs.
The spinners of the Kings didn’t get as many turns or control as the spinners of the Gladiators did.Instead, their frontline pacers, Amir, whose economy and second consecutive high-quality slog-over performance contributed primarily to the victory;Mohammad Ilyas, who almost always took wickets when he came on;and Arshad Iqbal, whose skiddy, back-of-a-length strategy appeared to be impossible to play in the early innings.
Even though the chase was pretty safe, the wickets always seemed to be around the corner.Hassan Khan’s late swing for a 15-ball 24 was the only instance of a batter being fearless;However, when he fell, the score was still 123 for 5 in 16.5 overs despite that boost of momentum.That indicated that the Gladiators were almost always behind the rate in pursuit.
All spin and Arish Ali’s dream debut A lot of the Kings’ early runs and momentum came from sixes from Sharjeel Khan, despite the fact that both he and Babae Azam struggled with their fluency during their 71-run stand.In the sixth over, Sarfraz brought on offspinner Abdul Nasir because the pitch didn’t allow for free-flowing shots.It was just spin until the 17th over, when left-arm spinners Hassan and Arish Ali bowled out their overs.In those 12 overs, only 83 were scored.
The Gladiators were able to play a second emerging player in the XI alongside Khurram Shahzad because they had nothing to lose in this game.Arish had never played at the senior level before, but he came away with a statement before the following season and an impressive haul.
Arish came on in the eleventh over, after Abdul Nasir had choked the Lords and excused Azam the past finished.When Martin Guptill lofted a full ball straight to long-off, he took his first wicket.
At this point, Sharjeel was already in and wanted to continue fighting the left-arm spinner.However, he only managed a chopped four past short third before continuing with the same shot, which was the result of Arish’s straightforward strategy to spin it in from outside off against the left-handers on a pitch with grip and turn.
Arish was in his element as the Kings attempted rebuilding.Eventually, Najibullah Zadran hacked him on attempting the late cut too.Because of the way he was playing, Sarfraz even asked him to come on in the 17th for his final over. Imad was bowled out at long-on as a result.On his first day of senior cricket, that made it three left-handed pitchers who were dismissed.

Babar Azam and Sharjeel Khan chose to bat, putting Karachi on a strong start with a 73-run stand for the first wicket off 55 balls.Babar’s innings lacked momentum and pace after Naseem Shah scored six extra runs (five wides and a no ball), but Sharjeel got a few boundaries going, including two sixes off Hassan Khan in consecutive deliveries before Babar was run out.

Before Danish Aziz got laid into Jack Wildermuth and smashed him for 33 runs in the penultimate over of the innings — the most expensive in the PSL — to push Karachi’s score to 176 for 7, Chadwick Walton briefly broke free, hitting Arish Khan for a boundary and a six off consecutive deliveries in the 17th over.
The Quetta Gladiators, who won only two games in the league stage, got off to a slow start and failed to increase their scoring rate despite scoring a few boundaries.Saim Ayub (19 off 15), Usman Khan (15 off 13), and Jake Weatherald (25 off 24) all got starts, but they didn’t help the Gladiators gain momentum in the chase.Ilyas, in particular, was the chief wrecker, going 3 for 9 in his first two innings.In his final two, he gave up another 30, but Gladiators had already lost the game.
When Sarfaraz Ahmed batted in the eighth over, he helped the innings progress.Hassan Khan picked four limits in his 15-ball 24, yet the rest couldn’t offer adequate help to Sarfaraz as Quetta hoped to surround the objective.Mohammad Amir ended Quetta’s hopes with a stingy 5-run sixth over, ending Sarfaraz’s 17 runs off the final over.

He can take wickets at any stage.You have the belief and confidence once you have momentum.At the top, we have gun players like Babar, Guptill, and Sharjeel, and we can only hope that they will deliver.
Danish Aziz was named the game’s MVP.The arrangement was to post no less than 160-170 which is the reason I went hard at every turn.When your innings contribute to the team’s victory, you are extremely pleased that we have qualified for the playoffs.
Sarfaraz Ahmed, captain of the Quetta Gladiators: We lost the game because of our poor start in the run chase.We made the same mistake throughout the tournament; throughout the season, we did not have partnerships that won matches.By forming a solid team, we will attempt to rectify this the following year.
