Side registered 10-run win
Outstanding performances from Rashid Khan and Tim David was enough for Lahore Qalandars to secure a comfortable 10-run win in the match 17 of the Pakistan Super League (PSL) 2021 in Abu Dhabi on Thursday.
After being put into bat first, Qalandars were in deep trouble after losing four wickets for 25 runs inside the first eight overs.
However, a brilliant 64 not out off 36 balls with the help of three fours and five sixes from David helped the team in posting a competitive total of 170 for the loss of eight wickets.
For the bowling team, left-arm spinner Fabian Allen was the pick of the bowlers he claimed two wickets.
In reply, Rashid was just too hot to handle for Zalmi who only managed to post 160 runs for the loss of eight wickets in their allotted 20 overs.
Veteran all-rounder Shoaib Malik was the star batsman for the losing team as he finished the innings with the top score of 73 off 48 balls with the help of seven fours and four sixes.
Rashid was the star performer as he finished with figures of five for 20 in his quota of four overs.
He was named the Player-of-the-Match second day in a row.
