Multan Sultans Vs Peshawar Zalmi | Match 21 | PSL 6

Dhani, Rizwan help Multan Sultans remain in sight of top-four finish

In Multan Sultans Vs Peshawar Zalmi | Match 21 | PSL 6 Multan Sultans beat Peshawar Zalmi 166 for 7 (Rutherford 56, Akmal 35, Dhani 4-31) by eight wickets in UAE leg. Mohammad Rizwan’s adjective-defying T20 run shows no signs of slowing down. Maqsood also contributes with a brutal half-century.On Sunday night, he created another masterclass as the Multan Rulers drifted to an eight-wicket prevail upon Peshawar Zalmi with 21 balls in excess.

As he chased 167, Rizwan caressed a classy 56-ball 82 without taking any risks and never gave the impression of being put under any sort of pressure.The Sultans’ bowlers had the Zalmi batsmen in their crosshairs for much of the innings, so the error-free effort that led to the flawless chase was merely a continuation of that.They didn’t have a bigger target until Sherfane Rutherford’s easy 50-year career.

Zalmi batted first and had a strong start thanks to veteran opener Kamran Akmal, but the Sultans bowled well enough to ensure that Zalmi never really got ahead.Uncapped Shahnawaz Dhani’s devastating second spell ripped the heart out of the top and middle order as it sped up to 70 in the ninth over looked imperious.

Zalmi were clearly losing the game as wickets fell and run scoring spluttered, and Imran Tahir, operating from the opposing end while wicketless, rarely allows too many runs.Rutherford hit a few clubbed sixes at the end that looked like they might give the Sultans some momentum at the changeover, but the Zalmi bowlers’ poor powerplay meant that all of that advantage was quickly lost.

With wides and misfields added to the mix, it came as no surprise that the 50 was raised in the fifth over by Wahab Riaz and Mohammad Irfan, who operated too frequently along a leg-stump line Rizwan was working away to for fun.

The contrast of styles between Sohaib Maqsood and Rizwan proved to be too hot for Riaz’s side to handle once they got together.Maqsood was hammering away during his innings, while Rizwan was painting his way through it.When Rizwan helped a Riaz delivery over fine leg with six to go, it seemed like a fitting way to end. A whirlwind 31-ball 61 made it clear that this was never going to go too deep.

The Rutherford Revival With eight overs remaining and Dhani’s four-wicket burst leaving Zalmi reeling, Rutherford ensured that what appeared to be a below-par total would turn into one that was somewhat competitive.He was content to initially play second fiddle to David Miller after taking a few balls to sleep in.However, Zalmi were running out of batters when Miller hit a spectacular catch by Rizwan, so caution was no longer necessary.

Momentum began to shift with a six-club backhand over Blessing Muzarabani’s head, but the left-hander was only just getting started.The following over, he would hit a monster over square leg, and two more off Sohail Tanvir resulted in a 34-ball fifty.45 runs off the final three overs brought Zalmi to 166, where they appeared to be headed for 140.

Dhani’s fluctuating fortunes This game’s beginning offered no indication that it might be Dhani’s day.He saved Haider Ali by bowling a sitter in the third over, but when he came on for the first time in the fifth, he let up 15 runs.Rizwan missed an easy chance to deny Dhani his wicket after the veteran Kamran Akmal placed him across the field for three boundaries in a row in a curious over.

In a complete horror show, Dhani followed it up with a beamer that hit his captain on the shin.Ali gave him a swiped six off the first ball as he returned for his second spell. Dhani would recover from that low point and eventually become the Sultans’ preferred bowler.

Dhani would take two more in a brilliant follow-up over after Akmal and Shoaib Malik were removed from successive deliveries.Zalmi was left reeling after a strong start when Ali holed out to mid-off before the dangerous Rovman Powell top-edged a pull thanks to a clever change of pace.

It helped keep the target manageable, and Rizwan, who took a fantastic catch running backwards to get rid of Powell, made sure that Dhani’s efforts wouldn’t be wasted.

Where they are, Multan has a better chance of finishing in the top four because they share six points with Karachi, which is in fourth place.With eight, Peshawar remains in third place.

Rizwan and Shan Masood consistently crossed the line to give the Sultans a strong start in the chase.The Sultans managed seven fours and a six in the powerplay, with Rizwan scoring five of those fours and the maximum, despite Masood falling to Mohammad Irfan in the fourth over after edging a short delivery to the ‘keeper.

Maqsood started his innings with sixes, so the Zalmi bowlers had no respite despite the expanding field.He scored two sixes by going over the cover region twice off Fabian Allen in the seventh over; his third came off Riaz with a pull in the tenth over as the Sultans advanced to the 100-run mark.

Rizwan, who had earlier scored a fifty off 34 balls, continued to hit the fence while Maqsood continued his six-hit performance at the other end.In the 16th over, Maqsood scored four fours off Umaid Asif for a 27-ball fifty before smashing over straight over the head of the umpire for another six.

His fifth six came off Mohammad Imran in the 17th over, and he got a top edge while trying to pull.The Sultans prevailed with 21 deliveries remaining to improve their Net Run Rate to positive, and Rizwan capped off the rout with an additional maximum against Imran.

Zalmi had a successful powerplay before being asked to bat, scoring 52 without losing a wicket.Kamran Akmal ensured a positive start, despite Haider Ali’s slow start.In the fifth over, he hit three fours off Dhani. The wicketkeeper-batsman also got a break when Rizwan dropped him off Dhani, who had dropped Haider off Blessing Muzarabani earlier.

Zalmi suffered setbacks in the same over when Akmal’s attempted cut resulted in a catch to Imran Tahir at third man and Shoaib Malik fell for a first-ball duck edging behind. Haider pulled Dhani over deep mid-wicket in the ninth over to finally get going.Zalmi fell to 88 for 4 after Dhani took Rovman Powell and Haider (both 28-ball 30) in his next over, losing four wickets for 17 runs in Multan Sultans Vs Peshawar Zalmi | Match 21 | PSL 6

David Miller, who had just scored a century against the Quetta Gladiators, looked like he might be good during his time here. However, when he got a top edge off of a pull, he fell for a 14-ball 22.With four sixes in two overs, Rutherford gave the innings some momentum, putting pressure on Muzarabani and Sohail Tanvir.Zalmi finished with a score of 160 or more despite a few run-outs in the final over and two boundaries, but this was insufficient in the end.

Brief ratings: Peshawar Zalmi scored 166/7 in 20 overs (Sherfane Rutherford scored 56 and Kamran Akmal scored 35;Shahnawaz Dhani (4-31) was defeated by Multan Sultans (Mohammad Rizwan 82*, Sohaib Maqsood 61) by 167/2 in 20 overs.By eight wickets, Mohammad Irfan (1-24)

Captain of the Multan Sultans, Rizwan: a few things, like our fielding, need improvement.Around my calf, my leg is swelling.I hope to recover quickly.The pitch appeared to be good, and I told the batsmen that if we bat deep, it will be easier with the dew coming in.

Shahnawaz Dahani was named the match’s MVP.Today there was more dew, and Azhar bhai showed us how to use it.I had confidence in myself and received plenty of support from the captain as well.I would like to dedicate this award to Carlos Brathwaite, who is at the Blast but is not present.

Captain Riaz of Peshawar; We didn’t do our plans justice.Despite our 10-15 deficit, I still believe it was a fighting total.The ball came on nicely thanks to Dew, but that did not diminish the game.The outcome would have been different if we had bowled well in good spots.We just need to focus on having a bad day at work, not this game.have to continue.The task is finished.
