Rizwan, bowlers star in Multan Sultans’ victory as chasing streak continues
In Lahore Qalandars Vs Multan Sultans | Match 7 | PSL 6 Hafeez’s 27-ball half-century for Lahore Qalandars was in vain Multan Sultans posted 159 for 3 (Rizwan 76, Maqsood 61*, Afridi 2-29) over Lahore Qalandars’ 157 for 6 (Hafeez 60, Brathwaite 2-20, Dhani 2-39). Given the current state of the world, almost everyone longs for a returnOn Friday, when you were watching Lahore Qalandars play in the Pakistan Super League.
You might as well have been transported there for three hours. Multan Sultan defeated them by seven wickets with nearly four overs remaining, putting an end to their perfect season.Mohammad Rizwan, who is becoming more and more unstoppable, put on a performance of overwhelming dominance. His 49-ball 76 made light work of a chase of 157 in Lahore Qalandars Vs Multan Sultans | Match 7 | PSL 6.
After the Sultans won the toss and, guess what, decided to bowl, the bowlers set up the win right at the start of the match.Sohail Khan and Shahnawaz Dhani’s plan to cramp Fakhar Zaman for space worked like a charm, stifling him before he took the wicket, which came at a time when Lahore’s opener Sohail Akhtar was having trouble speaking.The Qalandars had managed just 25, their lowest six-over total in PSL history, by the end of the powerplay.
Lahore reached a respectable total only thanks to Mohammad Hafeez, who may be the only Pakistan batsman currently comparable to Rizwan in terms of form.He started by smashing a six back over bowler Shahid Afridi, who was having a tough day today.
Hafeez went from strength to strength, hitting 27 balls for his 50th century, but a mistake with Samit Patel got him out for the first time in the tournament.The Qalandars’ innings began to splutter from that point on because there was no one to take over for him.Joe Denly, Ben Dunk, and Patel all failed to reach a total that would challenge the Sultans, and the Qalandars only had a fleeting hope when Chris Lynn and James Vince took early wickets.
Star of the Day Carlos Brathwaite has been surprising useful, particularly in the first half of the innings, despite the Sultans’ lack of a premium fast-bowling asset.
Today, he was put on the field as early as the fourth over and got things rolling with a wicket maiden thanks to his exotic combination of pace, length, and angles.Even Hafeez had trouble controlling the West Indian, and Joe Denly frequently took multiple deliveries just to go on strike against him.He broke an 89-run third-wicket partnership that appeared to have set up the Qalandars for the finish when he came on in the 14th over to bowl his final over, drawing Denly wide outside off stump to get him out.
Although Brathwaite’s intelligence contributed at least as much to the Sultans’ chances as Rizwan’s belligerence in the second half, the bowling did not set the heart racing.
Miss of the Day Not only were the Qalandars average with the bat and ball today, but they were also average in the field.Despite the fact that the side relies heavily on Zaman, his struggles up top were not the only area in which he was found lacking.
Zaman in the deep gave Sohaib Maqsood and Rizwan two chances to end their 110-run partnership. He gave each chance a reprieve.He took the risk of picking it up right away when Maqsood sliced one to him, but Rizwan’s chance went straight into his hands and came back out a few overs later.Zaman will want to forget that day, and the rest of his side will agree with him on that point.
Honorable mention Despite the fact that the Qalandars had little to smile about, Shaheen Afridi still managed to conjure the obligatory moment of magic, almost like it was written into his contract.He faced Chris Lynn, who was not performing well, in his first over. The match would end in a two-ball knockout.
Before being hopelessly outfoxed by a dream of a follow-up, Lynn kept out the first one, an in-swinging Yorkie.It landed on middle, about a foot from the stumps, angled slightly to the left and away from the bat Lynn frantically dropped to stop it.After impacting its base, it would crash into the off stump, creating that most elegant spectacle of a cartwheeling off stump frozen in front of a confused batsman.
Afridi followed it up with one more wicket in the fifteenth over, however the one that eliminated Rizwan was to a greater degree a convention after the game was finished.When the 20-year-old player approached the man eight years his senior and congratulated him on his efforts, it resulted in one of the game’s cozier moments.

Rizwan, Multan captain and Player of the Match:We’ve failed in the death overs in the past, but today we did a great job covering that.After a victory, I can’t relax.Truly content with how we corrected our demise bowling issues.Additionally, we carried that momentum into our batting innings.Try not to accept the throw has an impact.Before making a decision, I consider our team’s strength.
Captain Sohail Akhtar of LQ: We were 15 to 20 runs behind, and our fielding was also poor.We are looking into spin alternatives, which could help our bowling in the upcoming matches.At first glance, the wicket appeared to benefit the fast bowlers.
Maqsood Shoaib: Rizwan deserves credit for winning the powerplay and taking the game away.I wasn’t mixing the ball well when I came on to bat. However, he was doing a good job, so I could take my time.Before you attempt your shots, you will need to play about 15 to 20 balls on this wicket.The pitch was very similar in the first inning, but the teams would rely on chasing because 196 was chased down a few nights ago.
