Lahore Qalandars registered a one-run victory over Multan Sultans in a thrilling opener of the Pakistan Super League (PSL) on Monday. Asked to bat first, the Shaheen Afridi-led side posted a total of 175/6 in 20 overs after Fakhar Zaman smashed 66 off 42 balls. Later, the Sultans put up a great fight with their skipper Mohammad Rizwan playing a powerful knock of 75 off 50 balls. However, they fell short by one run after the Qalandars successfully defended 15 runs off the last over and began their campaign on a winning note.
One thing which left a major impact on the Sultans’ chase was the dismissal of Rizwan off Shaheen Afridi’s delivery. In the 16th over of Sultans’ innings, Shaheen bowled a perfect yorker to his rival skipper. The ball went past the bat and rattled the leg-stump. The dangerous Rizwan had to depart on 75 and it proved to be a game-changing moment for Qalandars.
