It has been the same old story for Lahore Qalandars as they are the only team to lose their first two games of the Pakistan Super League (PSL). The game against Islamabad United was pushed into the grasp of Lahore Qalandars by some efficient performers. However, others decided to throw it all away.
Nevertheless, it was a special night as far as Shaheen Afridi is concerned. The teenage pace sensation fired on all cylinders to dent Islamabad time and again. Be it the new ball or the old ball, Shaheen’s magic was in full swing in the Gaddafi Stadium Lahore. He gave away only 18 runs, and claimed 4 wickets to install his side in an advantageous position.
However, it all went to dogs as Usman Shinwari and Haris Rauf bowled poorly to leak runs at crucial stage of the game. Samit Patel too was taken to cleaners by striker Colin Ingram. As a result of their dismal show, Lahore continued to stay winless against Islamabad United.
