Quetta Gladiators hammer Islamabad United as Watson stars

 

Defending champions Islamabad United suffered a seven-wicket defeat at the hands of Quetta Gladiators in their Pakistan Super League (PSL) fixture at the Dubai International Cricket Stadium on Sunday evening.

Islamabad United — being sent in to bat first — had a disastrous side as their top order collapsed to 8-3 inside four overs.

Hussain Talat and Cameron Delport put on 58 runs for the fifth wicket but the side kept losing wickets at regular intervals. Wayne Parnell proved to be the top-scorer with his late 41-run knock, while Asif Ali made 36 runs Hussain Talat scored 30.

The chase of 158 runs proved to be an easy enough task for Quetta Gladiators though, thanks to an unbeaten half-century by Australia’s Shane Watson. The veteran all-rounder made 81 off 55 balls with the help of four boundaries and four sixes.

He was well supported by Umar Akmal who made a 28-ball 44 with five boundaries and two maximums to his name. The two put on a 61-run partnership for the third wicket.

The Australian also put on 66 runs with Sarfaraz Ahmed to take the side over the line with 10 balls to spare.
