Peshawar beat Quetta as PSL returns to Pakistan

Peshawar beat Quetta as PSL returns to Pakistan

Batting first Peshawar Zalmi were all out for 157 runs in their 20 overs. Liam Dawson's timely half-century, thereafter, kept Peshawar in the game as wickets tumbled at the other end as Rahat Ali returned a four-wicket haul, conceding just 16 runs in four overs. Liam Dawson scored a 35 ball 62 that included 6 fours and four sixes.

Quetta, chasing 158 for victory, needed 25 in the last over with Anwar Ali smashing three sixes and a boundary to keep the target down to three, but his partner Mir Hamza was run out as the batsmen tried a second run. After winning their last three matches to get to this stage, Zalmi have form on their side and will be looking to make a second consecutive final. Iqbal's return to the Zalmi line-up had instant impact, with the Bangladeshi southpaw smacking two fours on the first four balls bowled by left-arm spinner Mohammad Nawaz. The Gladiators were missing key trio of Shane Watson, Kevin Pietersen and Jason Roy - all of whom opted against visiting Pakistan on the security reasons.

Hasan Ali, Sameen Gul, Wahab Riaz and Mohd.

Peshawar Zalmi held their nerves to pull off a thrilling one-run win against Quetta Gladiators in the Qualifier match of the Pakistan Super League on Tuesday in front of a packed Gadaffi Stadium in Lahore.

Zalmi had ousted Karachi Kings from the second eliminator on their way to the final past year and have also beaten them in the reverse match after losing the first game.

The victor of today's match will qualify to play final against Karachi Kings on March 25 in National Stadium, Karachi - after over nine years since the city last hosted foreign cricketers.

Almost 18,000 security personnel will perform their duties.

That was followed by a three-match Twenty20 series against a World XI - comprising of players from seven countries - in September plus a single Twenty20 match against Sri Lanka a month later.
