The Pakistan Super League (PSL) 2023 witnessed a riveting game on March 16th as Peshawar Zalmi defeated Islamabad United by 12 runs in the first eliminator. However, amidst the thrilling match, an interesting incident occurred that caught the attention of Islamabad United fans.

During the 13th over of the game, when Peshawar Zalmi was at a score of 125-2, Islamabad United’s skipper, Shadab Khan, came in to bowl. Just before starting his over, Shadab Khan was heard declaring Babar Azam’s wicket on the stump mic saying, “Babar out hai is over mei,” and the stump mic caught it perfectly.

On the final delivery of the over, Shadab bowled a flat delivery around the middle stump, and Babar Azam got beaten by the pace, resulting in the ball crashing onto his front pad. The on-field umpire adjudged him out as it looked plumb, and Babar had to walk back to the pavilion.

Img 20230305 194216

The ongoing eighth edition of the Pakistan Super League has seen some outstanding performances from players, but one of the most impressive came from veteran Multan Sultans all-rounder Kieron Pollard. In the 20th match of the tournament, Pollard’s bowling prowess was on full display, as he took two wickets in just two overs to help bring his team back into the contest against Lahore Qalandars at the Gaddafi Stadium.

Pollard, who was introduced as the seventh bowler into the attack by captain Mohammad Rizwan, wasted no time in making his presence felt. In just four balls, he was able to put an end to a 46-ball 69-run third-wicket partnership between Abdullah Shafique (48) and wicket-keeper batter Sam Billings (54). Pollard’s bowling figures of 2/16 in his two overs were impressive, but more importantly, they came at a crucial moment in the match, when his team needed him the most.

What was even more impressive about Pollard’s performance was the fact that he was bowling only for the second time in the season. This speaks volumes about his ability to deliver under pressure, and his role as a key player for the Multan Sultans cannot be overstated.

However, the highlight of the match came on the fourth delivery of the 13th over, when Shafique attempted to hit a full and wide Pollard delivery over his head, only to see the bowler grab a stunning catch using both hands. The ball was hit hard at him, but Pollard’s swift reflexes came to his rescue, and he was able to dismiss Shafique in style.

In addition to his remarkable catch and two wickets, Pollard made it a point to provide an angry send-off to Shafique as he walked back to the dressing room. It was a clear indication of Pollard’s passion and intensity, and his willingness to do whatever it takes to help his team win.

Despite Pollard’s efforts, defending champions Lahore Qalandars were able to put up a solid defense of their title, posting a score of 180/9 in their allotted 20 overs. Captain Shaheen Shah Afridi won the toss and chose to bat at their home ground, and his decision paid off.

United chased down the mammoth total with four balls remaining and won by six wickets, a remarkable feat.
