PSL: Peshawar emerge tall after horror Lahore collapse

Lahore Qalandars v Peshawar Zalmi, PSL 2016-17, Sharjah
Peshawar Zalmi 166 for 6 (Kamran 58, Shakib 30, Yasir 2-19) beat Lahore Qalandars 149 for 9 (Tanvir 36*, Delport 32, Shakib 2-14) by 17 runs

There must be something about Peshawar that sends nerves directly through Lahore Qalandars. It wasn’t exactly as tremendous as 59 hard and fast, yet Lahore lost five wickets for one keep running as they crumpled around the turn of Shakib Al Hasan and Mohammad Hafeez in the Powerplay.

They never entirely recuperated from 43 for 6, and however dirty organizations between Aamer Yamin and Sunil Narine, and after that Yasir Shah and Sohail Tanvir, guaranteed they wouldn’t overlay for two figures, Lahore’s race was run well before the last lap.

It didn’t generally look along these lines. McCullum and Cameron Delport got off to a blasting begin, Delport being the destroyer-in-boss as he pounded 22 off the youthful Mohammad Asghar’s first over to take Lahore to 33 for no misfortune in two overs. Be that as it may, the innings disentangled from there on, with five wickets falling in eight balls, including a cataclysmic misunderstanding amongst McCullum and Umar Akmal that wouldn’t have charmed the Pakistan batsman to the Lahore chief. The power failed out from that point, and the running pace at which Peshawar played whatever is left of the challenge was sufficient to secure them a 17-run win.

Peshawar weren’t totally persuading when they batted, the first run through the champs of a hurl this competition had chosen to do as such. While they had wickets close by through the early parts of the innings, they never fully went ahead, thanks to some extent to a heavenly spell of legspin knocking down some pins from Yasir Shah that drained the force out of their innings. However, after a 16-run last over, Peshawar had 166 on the board.
