After being down and out in the first half of the ongoing season of the Pakistan Super League (PSL), Lahore has recorded an elite comeback. Bossing the defending champions Quetta Gladiators twice, the Qalandars wreaked havoc on the arch-rivals Karachi Kings.
Their winning run was expected to get halted against the prowess of Peshawar Zalmi. However, Lahore’s passion combined with a methodological approach silenced Zalmi’s professionalism in front of a jam-packed Gaddafi Stadium.
On a day when batters thrived, the quality of Lahore’s gun pacer Shaheen Afridi was on display. In his quota of 4 overs, the left-arm quick bossed the sturdy batting department of Peshawar. Doing so, he gave away only 28 runs while claiming 3 wickets. His spell was instrumental in restricting the yellow team as they looked on course for a total in excess of 200. It was good to see Shaheen coming back strongly after having an ordinary game against Karachi Kings.
