Peshawar Zalmi qualified for the final of the Pakistan Super League (PSL) 2019 by clinching a 48-run win over Islamabad United in the final eliminator at the National Stadium of Karachi on Friday. 

Here are six takeaways from the match:

Kamran-Imam century opening stand

Peshawar Zalmi’s fiery opening pair of Kamran Akmal and Imam-ul-Haq set the stage for a big total after scoring a mammoth 135-run stand for the opening wicket in just 12.2 overs. Kamran’s contribution in the partnership was 74, whereas Imam scored 58.

Pollard-Sammy late assault

On the solid foundation set by Kamran and Imam, KA Pollard and Zalmi captain Darren Sammy took on the United bowlers in death overs to post a big total. A common sight during Pollard and Sammy’s stay on the crease was mighty sixes hit all around the ground.

Delport calming the Yellow Storm

Cameron Delport was perhaps the only bowler among the United’s line-up who troubled Zalmi batsmen. He dismissed both Kamran and Imam in a single over and continued to contain free flow of runs throughout his spell. His figures of 2-24 in three overs are a testament to this.

Walton’s counter-punch

Windies international Chadwick Walton refused to get intimidated by the Zalmi pace factory. His stay at the crease was nothing short of a counter-punch as he hit three sixes and three fours for his 48 to ensure United never lost hope on chasing the target. But in the end, it didn’t matter as Walton never got any support from any other batsmen.

Hasan Ali continues to shine

Zalmi’s Hasan Ali dismantled the United batting by taking three crucial wickets of their hard-hitters Luke Ronchi, Cameron Delport and Hussain Talat. After putting up a mammoth 214 on the scoreboard, Hasan turned out to be the key difference between both the sides as he continued to provide his team with regular breakthroughs.

Zalmi’s batsmen showing class and grit

Four of Peshawar Zalmi’s batsmen scored in double figures. Kamran Akmal and Imam-ul-Haq led their team from the front by scoring half-centuries, and later captain Darren Sammy and KA Pollard took charge of the game in death overs. The best thing about their innings was that all of them played at strike rate of over 170 and between them hit 11 sixes and 20 fours.
