Sohail Tanvir and Rilee Rossouw played magnificently for Multan Sultans due to which they were able to beat Peshawar Zalmi by six wickets in their first home round of the period on 26th of February on Wednesday.
They decided to field first, the Sultans gave the main ball respite to Tom Banton yet Mohammad Irfan proceeded to reject him in the equivalent over with a very much idea out widish full ball, to which Banton couldn’t lay a decent lump of the bat and he got out.
Kamran Akmal appeared to play with the middle of the bat, however, he discovered James Vince at mid-wicket when he attempted to charge Tanvir. Mohammad Ilyas then amazed the guests by dismissing Shoaib Malik and Liam Livingstone in about three balls – both got behind with the ball jagging ceaselessly off the pitch.
Haider Ali offered a solid expression when he smashed a six in the same over. He kept the scoreboard moving, yet the accomplished Tanvir bowled an exceptional delivery and had him caught at mid-wicket.
Zalmi would never grapple with the languid surface as the hosts took pace off the ball and packaged them out for a below-par score of 123 with upwards of nine balls to save. It was a poor batting show from them. Tanvir was the pick of the bowlers, representing four wickets.
The Sultans were looking poor so far with the bat as well, with the best three – James Vince, Moeen Ali and Shan Masood – succumbing to single-digit scores. Rossouw, in the long run, got his eye in and Zeeshan Ashraf crushed a capping stunt of fours on appearance to give some kind of relaxation to the dressing room in order to put up a fighting total on the board in order to give an outside chance to their bowlers.
Wahab Riaz however figured out how to send him back on account of a superb catch by Banton at the retrogressive moment that the ball was savagely cut by Ashraf.
Khushdil Shah joined Rossouw at the crease and the pair easily drained the bowlers, treating the bowlers on merit. Subsequent to bringing the objective down to 33 runs required off seven overs, the couple propelled a genuine attack on Mohammad Amir Khan, smashing 22 runs to slaughter the game.
Sultans won the game with 5.1 overs to spare. They have won two matches out of their three games. With this win, Multan Sultans are at the top of the table as they have a very good net run rate.
