When a huge crowd makes its way to the aisles, they always wish for a dramatic finish to a cricket game. Pakistan Super League edition 3 was full of nail-biting thrillers and never-ending drama. The same scenario prevailed in the match of Quetta Gladiators and Peshawar Zalmi.
25 was required off the last over, Darren Sammy made a bold decision and handed over the ball to Liam Dawson. Liam tried to trap Anwar Ali with his cunning left-arm off-spin. But on the day, Anwar Ali was too good for him to handle.
He started the over with a lucky boundary and then went rampant, Anwar Ali smashed 3 gigantic sixes in that over and the Zalmi crowd stunned into silence. 3 was required off the last ball. No one would have thought of this amazing finish.
The drama did not end there, Anwar took on Dawson on the last ball and was dropped at long-on. Peshawar Zalmi breathes almost stopped but courtesy poor running from Gladiators batsmen Zalmi clinched the victory just by 1 run.
