Watson, Rossouw seal comfortable win for Quetta Gladiators against Multan Sultans

February 20 , 2019

Quetta Gladiators seal a comfortable eight-wicket victory over Multan Sultans in their Pakistan Super League (PSL) 2019 fixture in Sharjah.

Being sent in to bat first, James Vince laid the platform for the Sultans to post a solid total. After his departure on 28, the innings started to unravel as the middle and lower order failed to provide any spark to the batting side.

Skipper Shoaib Malik’s score of 53 runs was enough to take the side to over 150 and the side finished at 160-9 in their 20 overs.

The chase of 161 proved to be an easy task for the Gladiators thanks to half-centuries by Shane Watson and Rilee Rossouw.

Man of the match Watson took the game away from Sultans with his onslaught as he hammered 61 off 40 deliveries with the help of 11 boundaries. He was well supported by Rossouw who top-scored with 67 from 45 balls with 10 fours and a maximum to their name.

Their 56-run partnership played a key role in the side’s victory.
