Peshawar Zalmi clinched a memorable four-wicket win over defending champions Islamabad United in their Pakistan Super League (PSL) 2019 fixture at the Dubai International Cricket Stadium.

United — being sent in to bat — lost Luke Ronchi early in the innings but Cameron Delport guided the innings with his half-century and went on to score 71 of 55 deliveries with the help of eight boundaries and a maximum.

The South African batsman put on a 46-run partnership with Phil Salt on the second wicket and scored a 73-run partnership with Chadwick Walton.

After Delport’s innings came to an end, the defending champions kept losing wickets at regular interval and the side finished at 176 in their 20 overs.

Zalmi had a rocky start to the chase of 177-run target as the side were reeling at 84-5 at one stage.

Birthday boy Liam Dawson and Darren Sammy started to play some delightful strokes and scored 89 runs on the sixth wicket.

Drama unfolded in the last over as Zalmi needed 14 runs to win. Sammy was run out for 40 on the penultimate delivery after hitting skipper Mohammad Sami for a maximum. Needing four runs to win on the last ball, Dawson hit a straight boundary to seal a thrilling win.
