The charm of the ongoing edition of the Pakistan Super League (PSL) has been swelled with a thrilling encounter between Lahore Qalandars and Peshawar Zalmi. Despite registering a sturdy total of 187 runs, Peshawar failed to defend the target.
Coming into the last 2 overs, Lahore needed 24 runs with two new batters on the crease. However, Rahat Ali’s over changed the scenario as he leaked 16 runs against David Wiese and Samit Patel. The match was finally closed by the South African all-rounder while reproducing his magical six to take Lahore to 8 points.
Against all the backlash, all-rounder Carlos Brathwaite came out to back Rahat Ali. The 31-year old cricketer is of the opinion that it was a collective failure of Peshawar’s bowling department, so pointing fingers at anyone isn’t right. Moreover, he believes that Lahore played really well to match the yellow team. It remains to be seen how these two teams fare in their forthcoming fixtures of the 20-over tournament.
