Rossouw and Rizwan hit half-centuries and Sultans defeat Zalmi

Rossouw and Rizwan hit half-centuries and Sultans defeat Zalmi.Rossouw helps Multan Sultans defeat Peshawar Zalmi with a 36-ball 75, and Rizwan contributes with a 42-ball 66 to secure their second victory. Rilee Rossouw and Mohammad Rizwan’s half centuries helped the Multan Sultans defeat Peshawar Zalmi by 56 runs.

Zalmi were penalized for their carelessness on the field, while Rossouw is back to the brilliant best he seems to find every year at the PSL after an indifferent SA20. The Sultans were able to score 210, which was the highest score in this year’s PSL.

This included a 75-run stand in 35 balls with fellow South African David Miller, which took place over 36 balls. For the first half of the chase, Zalmi responded strongly, particularly during an explosive partnership between Mohammad Haris and Saim Ayub. However, Zalmi lost wickets in clumps and ultimately came up short.

Zalmi had won the toss and decided to field, but Rizwan made sure they couldn’t put much pressure on Shan Masood in the Powerplay while keeping him relatively quiet. Rossouw arrived shortly after Masood, who struggled to speak in a scratchy 25-ball 20, was squeezed down the leg.

He continued where he left off against Quetta Gladiators 48 hours earlier, scoring at least two boundaries in each of the ten overs from the ninth to the 18th. 149 runs were scored in the final 12 overs, and Rossouw batted as if he didn’t need any help at all, despite the fact that Rizwan and Miller were more than capable of supporting him.

Even though the Zalmi cause was hurt by frequent misfields, no bowler was spared. Wahab Riaz’s worst qualities were also displayed at the end, when he overstepped twice in the 20th over and gave up 19 runs.

Zalmi has a lot of entertaining hitters flanking Babar Azam, who fell early, with Sultans’ golden boy Ihsanullah striking out on the first pitch. It opened the door to a highly entertaining partnership between two of Pakistan’s most promising T20 batsmen.

Haris struggled to keep up with the asking rate and had an appearance that was identical to that of the Imran Nazir regeneration. Ayub’s shots have a more classical feel to them, but they are just as destructive. By the end of the eighth over, they were 20 runs ahead of where the Sultans were at that point, despite the Sultans allowing them pace on the ball.

However, Rossouw‘s sustained power is difficult to duplicate, and the crucial moment occurred in the ninth over. At this year’s PSL, the fielding has been poor, but Abbas Afridi made a lovely stop and hit Haris directly to get him out at the non-striker’s end.

The Sultans never gave up their power from that point on. Ayub and Rovman Powell salvaged a few runs with a flurry of fours and sixes, but five wickets in 16 balls ended the match for good. Tom Kohler-Cadmore was cheaply run out.

The weakened bowling attack’s allowed extra runs suddenly seemed insurmountable, and the last seven wickets were taken for 24 runs.

Ihsanullah ended the wickets column, taking the final wicket just like he did the first, which is fitting. He continued his magical performance on Wednesday with figures of 3 for 24, giving him an early lead in the PSL wicket-takers’ chart. He also contributed to the Sultans’ second victory and a healthy increase in their net run rate.
