Twitter goes mad as Qalandars thrash Zalmi in must win game as losing team (Peshawar Zalmi) got out of the tournament. They are in their way to airport.
Peshawar Zalmi didn’t start very well as they lost couple of wicket very quickly. Haider Ali, Imam ul Haq and Faf Du Plessis all went without troubling scorecard much.
Shoaib Malik did play fantastic innings in the middle of the innings but wasn’t enough either as he dismissed on 39 off 24 delivers. It was Vijoen a bowler who turned the things up for Peshawar Zalmi after getting 37 off 16 balls.
Lahore Qalandars started aggressively but they also lost two quick wickets, both gave their wickets to Mahmood, whose family belong to Pakistan. He wasn’t born in Pakistan though.
Both Fakhar Zaman and Tamim Iqbal went back to pavilion too early. Mahmood also got the rid of Qalandars’ captain Sohail Akhtar but thanks to Mohammad Hafeez who stuck their and take his team home with a victory over Peshawar Zalmi.
Mohammad Hafeez played gem kind of knock in must win game. He scored wonderful 72* runs for his team as Wiess finished the things for his team with two bang bang sixes over Wahab Riaz’s bowling who was Zalmi’s skipper as well.
Peshawar Zalmi was too lucky that their bowlers did the job with the bat, otherwise they were all set to get only around 150 runs. They went past 170 runs and make this chase interesting.
Peshawar Zalmi couldn’t see any player who could have scored 50+ and have taken this game to over 180 or 190 runs.

Mohammad Hafeez’s heroics clearly have gotten him a lot of appreciations from his fans due to his wonderful knock in chasing. It is always special to have some brilliant knock while chasing. It is considered to be unrealistic in Pakistan.
