Karachi Kings Vs Quetta Gladiators  PSL 6  Match 1

Karachi Kings sent the clear message to the other teams as well as the helpless Quetta Gladiators, whom they defeated by seven wickets in the inaugural PSL match of this season.

The Rulers could have copped analysis for relinquishing Mohammad Rizwan in the slow time of year.
However it was the new wicketkeeping initiate Joe Clarke who was the superstar for Imad Wasim’s side, taking four gets and blitzing 46 off 23 balls to tear the game away from the Combatants.

The Kings bowlers, led by emerging player Arshad Iqbal, punctured the Gladiators with regular wickets throughout the innings and eventually bowled them out for 121 in 18.2 overs to secure the victory.

Quetta started the game, oddly, with captain Sarfaraz Ahmed and Tom Banton instead of Chris Gayle, who would have been the more obvious choice.Banton’s stay was brief, ending in the first over with a low-percentage hoick.

Gayle appeared to be the most serious threat to Quetta Gladiators’ potential match-winning total once he settled in.However, he was alone, and the Jamaican himself only made a brief appearance before losing for 39 out of 24.Azam Khan’s 17 was the Gladiators’ next-best score.

Mohammad Hasnain did have a brief chance to make things interesting by getting rid of Sharjeel Khan in a ferocious first over, but apart from three wides and a loose shot from Qais Ahmed that Clarke caught for 24, there were no real chances of winning.

By this time, the Kings only needed to go through the motions to get their title defense off to a resounding start. When the winning runs were scored, they had 37 balls to spare when Hasnain returned to remove Babar Azam halfway through the innings.

Star of the Day Despite the fact that the Gladiators’ pace unit, which included Naseem Shah, Mohammad Hasnain, and Usman Shinwari, received the majority of the attention, the Kings’ emerging quick Iqbal ultimately stood out from the rest.

Brought in to bowl with Gayle having prepared himself with 18 off Aamer Yamin. Iqbal held his nerve in the initial salvo, permitting only four in the seventh over.Until Ben Cutting and Azam Khan threatened to leave, he was not called upon again;the pair had quite recently taken 11 off a Wasim over.
