Peshawar Zalmi brushed aside Islamabad United in a heavily one-sided contest in the second eliminator, to book a spot in the final of the Pakistan Super League (PSL). A clinical batting performance from Darren Sammy’s men was followed by a highly charged spell of fast bowling from the intimidating Zalmi pace attack.
The leader of the pack, this time around, was Chris Jordan playing his first game of PSL 4. Despite warming the bench for long, Jordan did not look one bit rusty, and rattled through Islamabad’s batting to dismantle any hopes of a challenge during the chase.
First bursting in to see the back off English compatriot Alex Hales, the 30-year-old later snapped up the crucial wicket of Faheem Ashraf ending his short-lived resistance. The right-armer ended his feisty spell of bowling with 3/26 in 4 overs, signaling a warning to Quetta Gladiators for the PSL final.
