Islamabad United continue their winning streak in the Pakistan Super League (PSL) 2021. Led by Imad Wasim, Islamabad beat the Karachi Kings to record their second straight win. Chasing a record 197 target, they relied on contributions from almost every batsman before hitting the target in the final over.
Alex Hales, who scored 46 out of 21, gave the team a solid start. Despite losing two quick goals, Islamabad is still on the hunt. Faheem Ashraf (25), Iftikar Ahmed (49 *), Hussain Talat (42 *) and Asif Ali (21 * off 9) played their part in the pursuit.
Needing just one run in the final, Islamabad finished the chase with a single stroke. However, their celebration was delayed by a few minutes because Karachi Kings decided to review LBW.
Replay clearly shows that the bat has hit the ball first, which means there is no mistake on the part of the ref. Aleem Dar, who was at the bowler’s end at the final ending, could not hide his excitement after the 3rd referee’s decision and held a small celebration in his place. Watch the video –
A respected referee, Aleem is a veteran in his field and the Kings’ decision to challenge his call-up after the game ended was a big surprise. The veteran referee has now left PSL for international matches and will return for the second round of the league.
Tons of Sharjeel wasted –
The combined efforts of Islamabad United batsmen proved to be too much for Sharjeel Khan 105 off 59. For his tonnes kindness, Karachi Kings have asked Islamabad United to pursue a record 196 target. Neither of Islamabad’s batters cross the 50-run mark but the concerted effort is enough to escalate the chase.
Karachi now has 1 win and one loss from 2 matches. They will next face Multan Sultan while Islamabad United will face Peshawar Zalmi.
