    Quetta Gladiators beat Islamabad United by seven wickets

    SHARJAH: Skipper Sarfraz Ahmed’s 39-ball 51 lead Quetta Gladiators innings as they chase down a target of 117 runs set by Islamabad United on a batting-friendly Sharjah Cricket Stadium pitch on Thursday.

    Gladiators easily chased down the target in 16.1 overs, with Sarfraz taking up the responsibility on his shoulders after United’s pace spearhead Andre Russell made inroads earlier in the innings by taking two wickets in quick succession.

    It was Ahmed Shehzad’s 41 off 31 deliveries and a 59-run stand with Sarfraz for the third wicket that put things back into Gladiators’ control. Mohammad Nawaz came down to bat at number five and scored an unbeaten 14 off 21 to establish a match-winning 45-run stand for the fourth wicket with his skipper.

    Russell remained the most successful bowler for Islamabad United by claiming three wickets. After dismissing Luke Wright (five) and Kevin Pietersen (zero) on consecutive deliveries during the third over, he returned to send Shehzad back to the hut in the 10th over.

    But by the time Shehzad departed, pressure was already off the Gladiators and they were sailing smoothly towards the victory.

    Earlier, Gladiators continued to take wickets in regular intervals to bowl out Islamabad United for a meager 117 in 19.1 overs. Last match’s star Sharjeel Khan failed to impress against Gladiator’s slow pace attack. He was dismissed for two by left-arm spinner Zulfiqar Babar.

    Shane Watson, however, continued his impressive run and smashed a quick-fire 40 off 28 balls. His innings included three fours and three sixes, but he was dismissed by Aizaz Cheema.

    New Zealand international Grant Elliott, who was playing his first match for Gladiators, also chipped in by taking three crucial wickets. After getting rid of United’s wicketkeeper batsman Brad Haddin and Sam Billings on consecutive deliveries, Elliott returned to dismiss Kamran Ghulam (nine).

    Haddin was stumped by Gladiators skipper Sarfraz Ahmed on 15, whereas Billings was trapped leg before on two. Elliott’s bowling figures read 4-0-25-3 and he was declared the Man of the Match.

    Gladiators skipper Sarfraz had won the toss and decided to bowl first. It was an all-round performance by Gladiators bowling attack with Babar and Cheema claiming two wickets each, while Anwar Ali, Mohammad Nabi and Mohammad Nabi took one wicket each.

    Quetta Gladiators were boosted by Elliot’s arrival into the squad. Sarfraz made two changes with Elliot replacing Elton Chigumbura and Aizaz Cheema coming in for Umar Gul.

    Islamabad United, on the other hand, brought in lanky fast-bowler Mohammad Irfan in place of Mohammad Sami.

    Gayle back, Amir out with injury as Lahore Qalandars field first

    Lahore Qalandars have won the toss and stand-in captain Dwayne Bravo opted to field first in a crunch game against Karachi Kings at the Sharjah Cricket Stadium on Friday.

    Qalandars will hoping the tactical change in leadership and the return of dashing opener Chris Gayle will boost their chances of a much-needed win against the Kings who will be without the services of pace ace Mohammad Amir.

    The Kings have also brought in Bangladesh wicketkeeper-batsman Mushfiqur Rahim and Sohail Khan after they suffered a heartbreaking three-run loss against Peshawar Zalmi on Thursday.

    Karachi and Lahore have played four games each and have managed to win just one fixture.
    Squads

    Lahore Qalandars

    CH Gayle, CS Delport, Naved Yasin, Umar Akmal, DJ Bravo*, Mohammad Rizwan†, Hammad Azam, Zohaib Khan, Zafar Gohar, KK Cooper, Ehsan Adil

    Karachi Kings

    Nauman Anwar, JM Vince, Shakib Al Hasan, RS Bopara, Shoaib Malik*, Mushfiqur Rahim†, Imad Wasim, Sohail Tanvir, Usama Mir, Sohail Khan, Mir Hamza

    Shehzad departs after cameo as Quetta motor along

    Ahmed Shehzad scored 41 off 27 balls before getting clean-bowled by leg-spinner Usama Mir as Quetta approached their 127 run target swiftly against Karachi Kings in the 14th match of the Pakistan Super League (PSL) on Saturday.

    The opener hit seven fours, providing a decent start to the Gladiators who lost Luke Wright in the fifth over.

    Earlier, Grant Elliot finished with impressive figures of 4-15-4 as Quetta restricted Karachi Kings to a paltry total of 126 runs.

    The New Zealand all-rounder frustrated the Karachi batsmen with his precision medium pace bowling and took the prize wicket of Ravi Bopara.

    The Kings won the toss and opted to bat first against the high-flying Gladiators side. They suffered the worst possible start, losing opener Nauman Anwar early before Malik and Vince put on a 47-run stand.

    Elliott, who has been in magical form with the ball since linking up with the Gladiators, dismissed Vince for 23 as the Kings reached 66/2 in 10 overs.

    The New Zealander has bowled just eight overs since his PSL debut and has already bagged seven wickets, proving himself as a handy inclusion to the Quetta side.

    Shoaib Malik, the Karachi captain, was also their highest scorer with 45 off 38 balls.

    The Kings, who defeated Lahore Qalandars on Friday courtesy Ravi Bopara's all-round show, are once again without the services of Mohammad Amir and the Gladiators also remain unchanged.

    The last time the two teams met, Ahmed Shehzad scored a scintillating 71 off 46 balls to give the Gladiators a comfortable eight-wicket win. The Kings also lost their following two games before downing the Qalandars and will now hope to produce a better performance against the Gladiators.

    Peshawar Zalmi and the Gladiators are currently share the top spots on the PSL table and while the other teams have experienced mixed fortunes, the Shahid Afridi and Sarfraz Ahmed-led sides have continued to march on.

    Squads:
    Karachi Kings

    Nauman Anwar, Shoaib Malik, James Vince, Shakib Al Hasan, RS Bopara, Mushfiqur Rahim†, Imad Wasim, Sohail Tanvir, Usama Mir, Sohail Khan, Mir Hamza

    Quetta Gladiators

    Ahmed Shehzad, LJ Wright, KP Pietersen, GD Elliott, Mohammad Nabi, Sarfraz Ahmed*†, Anwar Ali, Mohammad Nawaz (3), Zulfiqar Babar, Akbar-ur-Rehman, Aizaz Cheema

    Qalandars revive PSL hopes with shock win against Zalmi

    All-rounders Kevon Cooper and Cameron Delport took three wickets each to help Lahore Qalandars beat a strong Peshawar Zalmi side in the Pakistan Super League (PSL) on Saturday.

    Peshawar Zalmi, at some instances, showed signs of coming back in the game as they pursued a target of 165 runs, but failed to do so as the Lahore bowlers kept the run flow tight and took wickets at the right times.

    Earlier, Tamim Iqbal provided a decent start to Peshawar before losing his fellow opener Mohammad Hafeez in the fourth over but contributed 30 off 22 balls before getting dismissed in the seventh over.

    Cameron Delport was equally good with the bat as he smashed 78 off 61 balls for Lahore Qalandars in the first innings.

    The South African southpaw in a 3rd wicket partnership with Umar Akmal plundered 101 runs at the rate of 9.46 runs per over against a strong Zalmi bowling attack.

    Delport hit three sixes and six fours, while Akmal in his 31-ball-52 smashed six boundaries.

    Chris Gayle continued his poor run of form for Lahore Qalandars as the flamboyant opener was dismissed for a duck.

    Azhar Ali, the Lahore captain tried to provide stability after a poor start along with Delport but he also failed to make a meaningful contribution before falling out to Darren Sammy after scoring 25 off 26 balls.

    Zalmi hoped to reclaim the top spot after winning the toss and bowling first against the embattled Qalandars side at the Sharjah Cricket Stadium.

    Dawid Malan came back for Zalmi in place of James Allenby while captain Azhar Ali and Adnan Rasool returned for the Qalandars.

    Lahore, who were placed at the bottom of the PSL points table with just one victory in five games, by beating a dominant Zalmi side, made it easier for themselves to claim a play-off spot.

    Disciplined Islamabad restrict Karachi to 128

    SHARJAH: Islamabad United put up a disciplined bowling display as Karachi Kings failed to post a big total again, managing just 128 runs in the first innings of the 16th match of the Pakistan Super League (PSL) on Sunday.

    Left-arm spinner Imran Khalid and seasoned all-rounder Azhar Mahmood shared three wickets among themselves and bowled economically to the Kings' line-up which has struggled with the bat throughout the league.

    For Karachi, Ravi Bopara and Mushfiqur Raheem stood out with 45 and 33 runs respectively but lost their wickets before they could capitalise.

    Debutant Shahzaib Hasan smashed a 19-ball 27 hitting three fours and one six.

    Earlier Islamabad won the toss and elected to field first.

    The Kings have won just two of their six PSL matches, both victories coming against a struggling Lahore Qalandars side and will be desperate for another win as they bring back left-arm pacer Mohammad Amir, who was absent in their previous two matches.

    Islamabad, on the other hand, will be without the services of Australian all-rounder Shane Watson, who flew back to Australia on Saturday after suffering abdominal strain.

    Former Pakistan all-rounder Azhar Mahmood replaces the Aussie for United.

    Teams:
    Karachi Kings:

    Shoaib Malik (capt.), James Vince, Shahzaib Hasan, Imad Wasim, Ravi Bopara, Shakib Al Hasan, Mushfiqur Rahim (wicketkeeper), Mohammad Amir, Usama Mir, Sohail Khan, Mir Hamza

    Islamabad United:

    Misbah-ul-Haq (capt.), Sharjeel Khan, Khalid Latif, Asif Ali, BJ Haddin (wicketkeeper), Azhar Mahmood, AD Russell, S Badree, Imran Khalid, Mohammad Sami, Rumman Raees

    Am surprised at some of the talent on display. Why some of the youngsters have never played for Pakistan is beyond me.

    Najam Sethi hopes for PM Nawaz, Imran to watch PSL final

    Gentlemen, put politics aside and watch cricket!"

    Pakistan Super League (PSL) chairman Najam Sethi used these words Monday to invite Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif and none other than his vocal critic Pakistan Tehreek-i-Insaf (PTI) chairman Imran Khan to watch the PSL grand finale on Feb 23 in Dubai.

    "I invite Patron PCB Nawaz Sharif & WC winning captain Imran Khan to PSL Final on 23rd Feb," he said on Twitter.

    The veteran journalist urged followers to start a trend on Twitter "to build up pressure on Nawaz Sharif and Imran Khan" to show up at the PSL final.

    Convinced that the premier's daughter can persuade her father to attend, Sethi later asked Maryam Nawaz on Twitter if she was "listening to public demand" for Sharif's attendance.

    Sethi was criticised during Khan's prolonged 2014 dharna days for his role as caretaker chief minister of Punjab in 2013. Khan had questioned his role in the general elections of 2013 which he said were rigged heavily, but Sethi dismissed all allegations and threatened to sue the PTI chairman for defamation.

    Sethi was the acting chairman of the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) during the Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz's (PML-N) first year in power and was later appointed chairman of the PCB Executive Committee and PSL.

    The PSL is Pakistan's first franchise-based league, featuring five teams, and has provided emerging as well as established cricketers with a lucrative opportunity to display their Twenty20 talent during the extravaganza which continues till February 23.
