4 min read

In the fourth match of the Pakistan Super League season nine, Quetta Gladiators handed Lahore Qalandars a five-wicket defeat in their game against the Qalandars on Monday.

During the chase for a target of 188, Khawaja Nafay, a 22-year-old batter, put together a masterful 60 off 56 deliveries as Quetta won their second consecutive match, while Lahore lost their second consecutive match.

It was Sahibzada Farhan’s anchoring fifty that put the defending champions on top following Shaheen Afridi’s decision to bat first, followed by Jahandad Khan’s blistering knock that saw them reach 187/7 in their innings.

In the third over, Akeal Hosein dismissed Fakhar Zaman (6) on the first delivery, leaving the score at just nine runs after the first delivery of the innings. The hosts were facing an early setback in their batting innings.

In order for Rassie van der Dussen’s recovery to be a successful one, she formed a partnership with Farhan.

After building a durable partnership of 53 runs for the second wicket, van der Dussen and Abrar Ahmed ended the scrappy 15-run innings van der Dussen had been enduring with the score of 3-1, with the ninth over bringing an end to it.

A one-sided partnership was then formed between Farhan and Abdullah Shafique, which enabled him to achieve his second consecutive half-century in PSL 9.A 43-ball 62 was the score that he achieved, hitting six boundaries and three sixes in the process, and he eventually fell victim to Mohammad Hasnain’s bowling in the 13th over.

The Gladiators were one stroke away from scoring another breakthrough when Hosein returned two balls later to dismiss Shafique (11) caught behind with another two balls to spare.Abrar was bowled for 89 in the 16th over, but Jahandad Khan took charge of the Qalandars’ batting expedition with a sensational knock to triple their total, which included three boundaries, four sixes, and three sixes against Abrar.

Taking just 17 deliveries to make his 45-ball unbeaten, he carried on with his bat throughout the innings.

The death was also graced by notable contributions from Sikandar Raza (18) and Shaheen Shah Afridi (12) who also made quick appearances during the funeral.

Abrar, Mohammad Amir, and Mohammad Wasim Jr were each able to take one wicket each for the Gladiators, while Hasnain and Hosein took two wickets each for the Gladiators.
