Peshawar Zalmi’s Battling Effort: Multan Sultans Opt to Field First

Multan Sultans won the toss and elected to field first. Peshawar Zalmi started steadily, with openers Babar Azam and Saim Ayub putting on a solid partnership. However, the introduction of spin slowed the scoring rate, and wickets started falling at regular intervals. In the end, Peshawar Zalmi managed to post a competitive total of 146/7 in their 20 overs.

Multan Sultans’ Remarkable Chase: Usman Khan and Iftikhar Ahmed Seal Victory

In response, Multan Sultans started cautiously, with openers Usman Khan and Rizwan Hussain playing sensibly. However, Rizwan’s dismissal triggered a collapse, and Multan Sultans were soon struggling at 63/4. But just when Peshawar Zalmi looked set to register a victory, Usman Khan and Iftikhar Ahmed put on a match-winning partnership of 84 runs to take Multan Sultans over the line with seven wickets in hand.

Conclusion: Multan Sultans Clinch Victory in an Exciting Encounter

The match served as a testament to the caliber of cricket witnessed in the PSL, showcasing the resilience and resolve of both teams. Ultimately, Multan Sultans emerged triumphant, yet Peshawar Zalmi’s valiant effort deserves recognition.

As the league stage of PZ vs MS Pakistan Super League 2024 nears its conclusion, the significance of each match intensifies. Fans can anticipate many exhilarating clashes in the ensuing days as teams vie for supremacy in the tournament.

“We will try to win the next match and go to the finals.

“We still believe in ourselves as a team.

“In the bowling, we need to put a marker, and we will focus on that and the fielding for the next match.”

The Sultans of Swing do it again

The Sultans swung the bat as big as they swung the ball, and there was something of a mismatch between the top two sides from the league stage.

Multan Sultans reach their fourth consecutive final

Two singles finish the job with nine balls to spare.

It’s a comprehensive seven-wicket win in the end for the Sultans.

PZ vs MS Pakistan Super League 2024 | Six to start over

Iftikhar Ahmed smashes Luke Wood for six over midwicket with a big pickup, and the chase is nearly there.

Two to win from 11.

18 overs. Multan Sultans 139-3

The Sultans are nearly there, but Chris Jordan finds it sticky from the off.

He expertly delivered his yorkers with the ball but failed to nail it with the bat with several big swings and half-hits.

Six off the over.

Eight needed from 12.

17 overs. Multan Sultans 133-3 

Back-to-back boundaries ease the tension as Iftikhar Ahmed sends his first two balls for fours.

Both departed through midwicket – one from a full ball and one from a short ball.

The TV umpire rejects a review for LBW after Usman Khan failed to connect with an attempted fine glance.

Iftikhar then makes no mistake with a short ball pulled for four.

Quite the over, but even with the wicket, Multan is nearly there.

Fourteen of 18 required.

WICKET! Charles is out! Multan Sultans 119-3

Here we go – Peshawar’s chance arrives.

Johnson Charles swings and misses to bowled for 11 from 17.

Salman Irshad threw a low full toss, and the right-hander thought of baseball when he saw the ball leave his hand.

16 overs. Multan Sultans 119-2

Johnson Charles hammers the ball back over Luke Wood’s head, but Long-on gets around to cut the ball off.

The left-arm seamer nearly gets out of the over, but Usman Khan cuts the ball backward of point for four.

Three off the first three from Luke Wood

Multan Sultans will want to win this in the 19th over and not let this go to the wire.

At what point do they look to get it down?

15 overs. Multan Sultans 109-2

Johnson Charles powers four through midwicket to ease an over that only garnered a single.

Aamer Jamal’s reverse swings caused problems.

There’s still a chance.

Thirty-eight to win from 30.

Thoughts of a review by Peshawar

Aamer Jamal gets the ball to reverse and hits Johnson Charles’s pads, but the fielders rightly decide not to go upstairs.

14 overs. Multan Sultans 104-2

Usman Khan moves to 23 from 17, and the Sultans win as long as he remains.

Salman Irshad concedes six, but there was also a leg bye in there.

Forty-three to win from 36.

13 overs. Multan Sultans 97-2

After the strategic timeout, the batting side eased their way back into the action

Peshawar Zalmi was 97-3, so the game is far from done.

12 overs. Multan Sultans 92-2

Usman Khan finds his first boundary with a late cut as Saim Ayub offers some width.

Seven are off the over, and 55 needed from 48 balls.

Strategic time out taken.

WICKET! Yasir is out! Multan Sultans 84-2

The wicket Peshawar Zalmi so desperately needed.

Yasir Khan used his feet to Mehran Mumtaz but didn’t reach the pitch of the delivery and slammed a flat-batted shot back to the bowler to fall for 54.

Johnson Charles ends the 11th by pushing his first ball for a single.

Ten overs. Multan Sultans 80-1

Just five off the over, but the chase is very much in favor of the batting side.

The current run rate is eight, and the required is 6.70.

Peshawar was 67-3 at this stage.

Nine overs. Multan Sultans 75-1

The fifty for Yasir Khan is so crucial following the loss of Mohammad Rizwan.

If he fell now, there could be a way back into this for Peshawar Zalmi.

Fifty for Yasir Khan

The right-hander cuts a boundary early in the over before finding his fifty with a single off 30 balls with seven fours and one six.

Eight overs | Multan Sultans 66-1

Yasir Khan continues to power along on 45* from 27 faced, but the loss of Mohammad Rizwan offers Peshawar Zalmi hope.

One brings two, as they say.

Usman Khan is the new batter.

WICKET! Mohammad Rizwan is out! Multan Sultans 61-1

The skipper falls needlessly as he scoops Aamer Jamal to deep square and falls for 15 from 21.

Of all the people who gave it away, Rizwan was the most unlikely.

The door opens for Peshawar Zalmi.

Seven overs | Multan Sultans 54-0

Nine off Mehran Mumtaz’s second over. Yasir punched a four-through point off the third ball.

Six overs | Multan Sultans 45-0

Yasir Khan capitalizes on a short ball from Luke Wood and pulls for four.

Back-to-back boundaries finish the over, and that’s 14 conceded.

Walter delivers a gift to the Sultans

The left-arm seamer puts his first ball into the slot outside off stump, and the right-handed Yasir Khan drives through the covers for four.

Three overs | Multan Sultans 22-0

That over from Saim Ayub was all about the stumping review.

It took forever, and then there was a long delay for the screen to play the decision even though everyone knew it was not out.

Just three singles and a leg bye off the over.

Mohammad Rizwan survives

The back foot grounded by the time the bails removed.

Mohammad Rizwan could be out.

The right-hander goes for a huge slog sweep and misses.

The keeper whips off the bails, and upstairs they go.

Two overs | Multan Sultans 18-0

Luke Wood swings his second ball down the leg side for a wide.

He overcompensates with the following delivery, and Mohammad Rizwan crisply drives for four.

Luke Wood now looks to swing the ball

Having swung the only six of the Sultans’ innings, Luke Wood is now on to offer some swing with the ball from his left arm over.

One over. Multan Sultans 9-0

Mohammad Rizwan took a single to get off the mark on the first ball, but all eyes were on that massive six from Yasir Khan.

Peshawar Zalmi had to wait for the 19th over for the only six of their innings.

Six off the second ball!

Yasir Khan clears midwicket with a huge pickup off the second ball of the innings from a length ball from Mehran Mumtaz.

What a start!

Chris Jordan reflects on the yorker and then dismisses Babar Azam

“The pitch was a little bit slow. When I came back, I tried to slow down a bit, and it was a good ball to get him,” he told Sky Sports.

“It was a solid start to the innings for us, and that ball should be changeable on that wicket.”

Peshawar Zalmi post 146-7

Three runs taken off the final ball by Luke Wood, who finishes with 14 off seven.

Where would that inning have been without the number nine?

Another dot ball off the fifth

Luke Wood steps across to paddle, but the bowler follows him, and the ball thumps off the pad.

Wood defends a yorker from the fourth ball

Chris Jordan fires the ball into the block hole again.

Walter digs out a single off the third ball

Not where the left-hander intended, but a leading edge along the floor brings a single.

Another Yorker Beats Walter

But the second ball also beats off the stump.

Jordan opens the final over with a yorker

Paul Walter can only dig the ball out and not run.

19 overs | Peshawar Zalmi 143-7

Luke Wood followed the six with four crashed through cover as the left-hander backed outside off stump to give himself room.

The first six of the innings!

Luke Wood arrives in the middle, sending his second ball back over Abbas Afridi’s head for six.

What a sweet strike from Multan’s sultan of swing – a brilliant arc of the bat!

Abbas Afridi fires in a full delivery that bowls the right-hander, who was attempting to reverse his bat to run the ball fine but falls for one run.

The right-hander tries to scoop Chris Jordan but only paddles to a short, fine leg, falling for 12 from 11 faced.

A Boundary, at least for Peshawar Zalmi

Chris Jordan makes a fine start to the over, but Rovman Powell carves the third ball out of the blockhole for four over cover.

17 overs | Peshawar Zalmi 123-5

The first boundary for 22 deliveries comes off a waist-high full toss.

Paul Walter hooks the ball for four.

It’s just low enough from David Willey to avoid being called.

The last ball is a bouncer, and Rovman Powell top-edges a hook over the keeper for four more.

Three Singles to start the 17th over

David Willey is proving as difficult to get away as ever.

There are two new batters in the middle, and this is tough for Peshawar Zalmi.

16 overs | Peshawar Zalmi 111-5

Paul Walter is the new batter. The last ball of the over, a ripping leg spinner that beat the left-hander’s inside edge, nearly bowled him.

Usama Mir smiles ruefully as the ball only just passes the off stump.

WICKET! Kohler-Cadmore is out! Peshawar Zalmi 109-5

The right-hander tries to loft a drive into the on side but only top-edges a dolly to long-off.

He falls for 24 from 24 as Usama Mir’s leg spin strikes.

15 overs | Peshawar Zalmi 108-4

Just six runs off the over and not a boundary in sight.

The final ball was a slower ball that nearly fooled Rovman Powell, but the right-hander checked his drive just in time as the ball dipped into the blockhole.

A strategic timeout taken.

David Willey returns for Multan Sultans

There is still some swing for the quicks, and the left-arm concedes just two off the first three deliveries of his return.

14 overs | Peshawar Zalmi 102-4

Babar Azam’s wicket has sent shockwaves throughout this match.

The skipper looked set for a fifty at least.

Brilliant ball. Huge moment!

A thick inside edge thumps into the pads but falls safely into the off-side.

13 overs | Peshawar Zalmi 97-3

Tom Kohler-Cadmore belts the final ball of the over in front of cover for four.

The ball was short, and the right-hander rocked back to punch in the air.

Abbas Afridi enters the attack for Multan Sultans

The right-arm seamer nearly bowls Tom Kohler-Cadmore with his second ball as the delivery tails back in to beat a huge swing of the bat, but it just misses the top of off.

12 overs | Peshawar Zalmi 88-3

Usama Mir recovers the over with only two singles following the boundary off the first ball.

A Boundary to Begin the over for Peshawar Zalmi

Tom Kohler-Cadmore powers Usama Mir over cover to begin the over.

His side needs plenty more of that from the big hitter.

11 overs | Peshawar Zalmi 82-3

I don’t remember seeing this before: The wicketkeeper’s glove was on the ground when a throw came back from the boundary of what appeared to be the final ball of the over.

The ball hit the glove, resulting in a five-run penalty and an extra ball bowled. That only goes for a single.

The earlier boundary slightly alleviated the pressure, and Babar Azam moved to 40 from 36.

The onus is on Tom Kohler-Cadmore to increase his rate now. He has eight from eight and keeps the strike with that single off the final delivery.

A Boundary for Babar Azam

The Peshawar skipper sweeps Khushfil Shah in the air but safely over fine leg for four.

Ten overs | Peshawar Zalmi 67-3

The halfway stage reached, and that batting side is slowing down.

Twenty-five balls taken since the last boundary, and just five singles have been taken off the 10th over.

The Runout Check Cleared

Tom Kohler-Cadmore is the new batter and has to get a move on when a sharp single is attempted off Usama Mir’s first delivery of the 10th over.

A dive saves the right-hander, although the TV umpire consulted just to be sure.

Nine overs | Peshawar Zalmi 62-3

Babar Ali has 31* from 29 deliveries and is holding things together for his side.

Iftikhar Ahmed has conceded just nine off his opening two overs.

WICKET! Haseebullah falls! Peshawar Zalmi 57-3

Mohammad Ali takes the catch as Usama Mir strikes with his sixth ball, having only conceded two singles before that in the over.

Seven overs | Peshawar Zalmi 51-2

Iftikhar Ahmed enters the attack for the first time, and the off-break bowler concedes just four singles as he rushes through a quick over immediately after the powerplay.

Haseebullah Khan is the new batter.

WICKET! Haris is out! Peshawar Zalmi 51-2

The right-hander nicks through to the keeper to fall for 22 as Mohammad Ali ends the powerplay with a wonderful line and length delivery on off stump.

Mohammad Ali tightens up again for Multan Sultans

Having conceded only one boundary off the final ball of his first over, the right-arm seamer concedes just two singles and a leg bye off the first three balls of his second.

Five overs | Peshawar Zalmi 42-1

Babar Azam makes it back-to-back boundaries midway through the over, following up his fine glance with a well-timed flick through midwicket.

Four overs | Peshawar Zalmi 30-1

Mohammad Ali drifts on the pads of Babar Azam with the final ball of the over and glanced for four.

Just two off the over otherwise.

Mohammad Ali comes on for Multan Sultans

The second-highest wicket-taker at the tournament thrown the ball for the second ball.

There’s a swing out there for David Willey, so it’s a surprise that Mohammad Ali didn’t open the bowling at the opposite end to the left arm and used spin instead.

Three overs | Peshawar Zalmi 24-1

After the appeal, David Willey is back onto the pads with the next ball.

Following a leg bye, Mohammad Haris is on strike and clips fine for four.

The final ball offers a little width, and the right-hander opens the face to run it for another boundary.

Multan Sultans review against Babar Azam

David Willey is left arm over to the right-hander and hits the pads with his third ball of the over.

The Sultans go upstairs for a review, but the ball pitched outside the leg stump line.

Two overs | Peshawar Zalmi 14-1

Babar Azam cuts the final ball of the over for four more as the spinner drops short and offers width.

Khushdil Shah with the second over for Multan Sultans

The left-arm spinner clipped for four through midwicket midway through his opening over by Mohammad Haris.

One over | Peshawar Zalmi 4-1

Mohammad Haris nearly yorks himself with his first ball.

The right-hander uses his feet, and the ball passes between the bat and pads and only just misses leg stump.

  • WICKET! Saim is out! Peshawar Zalmi 4-1
  • David Willey strikes with the fifth ball of the match as Saim Ayub top-edges a pull to deep square and falls for one from four balls faced.

Babar Azam nearly gets off the mark for the first ball with a boundary

The right-hander clips through midwicket for three after David Willey was a fraction full and straight.

The first ball: Multan Sultans vs Peshawar Zalmi

David Willey is left arm over the wicket to open the bowling and serves up a full, swinging ball.

Saim Ayub drives watchfully into the covers.

Babar Azam is at the other end.

It was all smiles for Mohammad Rizwan and Babar Azam at the toss

Multan Sultans top the bowling charts

Multan Sultans’ bowlers Fazal Mahmood and Mohammad Ali top the wicket-taking charts with 21 and 17 scalps, respectively.

Babar Azam leads Peshawar Zalmi’s charge

Babar Azam’s runs have led the way impressively for Peshawar. His total of 498 so far makes him the top scorer in the PSL this year and a long way clear of Mohammad Rizwan’s 366 in second place.

The two come head-to-head in this one.
