Bowlers, Babar give Karachi second consecutive win

Karachi Kings pulled off a five-wicket win over Peshawar Zalmi in the seventh match of the PSL.

After winning the toss, Peshawar opted to bat first. Peshawar's top order struggled against the late swing of Mohammad Aamer. Kamran Akmal was beaten on the inside edge whereas Tamim closed the face of the bat early, nicking off to the keeper.

Peshawar batsmen struggled to score and that meant they were opting for the big shots and getting out. Dwayne Smith showed resistance and kept playing big shots at regular intervals. Peshawar scored 48 runs off the last four overs to keep some hopes alive in the game.

Karachi’s run chase started with the wicket of Khurram Manzoor who ramped a short-ish ball to deep third man where the young Ibtisam Sheikh took an excellent catch, diving fully forward. Babar Azam smashed a quick 28 off 20 balls before returning a simple catch to Darren Sammy.

Peshawar had a couple of missed chances in the field. Bopara was given a life in the 17th over when he gloved a pull through to the keeper which was given as a wide by the umpire.

Requiring seven off last two overs, Umaid Asif bowled a stunning second last over and conceded only two runs. Rizwan went for the glory in the last over but ended up giving a straightforward catch to long-off. Imad, however, struck the winning shot and gave Kings a win by five wickets.
