Peshawar Zalmi skipper Wahab Riaz led from the front with a fearsome spell of pace bowling to rattle the Quetta Gladiators lineup. Playing his first match as the full-time captain of the Zalmi, Wahab was observed to be taking the new ball and soon wreaked havoc on the opposition with his immense skill.
Wahab got the crucial scalp of the dangerous Ben Cutting just when the Aussie was threatening to take the game away from Zalmi. He also snaffled Ahmed Shehzad and captain Sarfaraz Ahmed in his match-winning spell.
Wahab’s efforts left a huge dent on the Gladiators’ chase, helping his team defend the total of 170/6 rather comfortably as they won by 30 runs. The left-arm speedster finished with impressive figures of 3/21 in his three overs, mixing it up with yorkers and bouncers.
