Lahore Qalandars have continued to slump in the running season of the Pakistan Super League (PSL) as they have registered a third successive defeat in the tournament. Playing Multan, Islamabad and Peshawar, the green jersey have managed to lose all the contests, swelling their shoddy record in the history of the 20-over competition.
In a rain-curtailed encounter, Peshawar batted first after losing the toss. The yellow team smashed Lahore right, left and center to put a mammoth total of 132 runs on the board in the allotted 12 overs. Haider Ali and Tom Banton shined with bat as they both produced a quick fire knock of 34 runs.
Lahore’s start wasn’t bad and they looked on track having scored 48 runs in their first 4 overs. However, all-rounder Lewis Gregory changed the game in an over to silence the bat of Chris Lynn and Mohammad Hafeez.
While Lahore saw Samit Patel flexing his muscles in Rawalpindi, it all proved too much for them. This way, Peshawar recorded their second victory of the 6-team event to get restored in the top 4 teams of the points table.
