Imran Tahir and Mohammad Rizwan featured on the first day of the season of the seventh version of the Pakistan Super League as reigning champs Multan Sultan got off to a triumphant beginning.
On a sluggish surface, Karachi Kings were limited to just 124 and Multan pursued it down with ten balls left. Shan Masood got off to a lively beginning in the pursuit as he moved to 26 in speedy time and despite the fact that he was excused in the powerplay, Rizwan guaranteed Multan didn’t lose their hold on the game.
Sohaib Maqsood got the rope on a couple free from events and Rizwan grabbed a crucial 50 years at the opposite end. With the necessary rate generally taken care of, Multan stayed on top of the challenge.
Prior in the evening, Sharjeel Khan assisted Karachi with making a rankling start as he brought three fours and figured out how to clear the limit threefold to rush to 43. Nonetheless, Babar Azam got going in scratchy style at the opposite end. Sharjeel’s wicket went to be the key as Joe Clarke and Babar attempted to get rolling.
To exacerbate the situation, Mohammad Nabi’s strange 17-ball 10 simply figured out how to include more tension the batting side as they never figured out how to recuperate. Karachi completed in shambolic style as they just couldn’t get things moving at the demise. Imran Tahir was the modeler in the center overs as his 3 for 16 was instrumental in holding Karachi in line.
Brief scores : Karachi Kings 124/5 in 20 overs (Sharjeel Khan 43, Joe Clarke 26; Imran Tahir 3-16) lost to Multans Sultans 126/2 in 18.2 overs (Mohammed Rizwan 52*, Sohaib Maqsood 30; Mohammad Nabi 2/17) by 8 wickets.
