The final stage is set for the PSL season 8. Multan Sultan facing Lahore Qalandars. Lahore Qalandars for the second time in a row reached in finals and this time they beat Peshawar Zalmi.
In PSL 8, Lahore Qalandars for the first time chased down the target and sent Peshawar Zalmi home. No one thought that Lahore would be able to chase that target, they weren’t able to chase targets in the PSL 8 till now.
Peshawar Zalmi on the other hand batted brilliantly, but their bowlers couldn’t deliver the magical spells to dismantle Lahore’s bowlers just like they did against Islamabad United.
Lahore Qalandars Beat Peshawar Zalmi To Reach PSL 8 Final
People thought that Babar Azam arrived in Peshawar Zalmi and now he will bring back the trophy. But it didn’t happen. Lahore played well, although the skipper was expensive with the ball but managed to hit the winning runs with the bat.
For Lahore Tahir Baig was the star player who scored 54 runs and became a man of the match. In Peshawar’s batting lineup, Babar couldn’t reach a half-century but Mohammad Haris troubled the bowlers with his bat and scored 85 runs.
Shaheen on the other hand keen to contribute with his bat in the future. “I am always trying my best to give to the team in batting, bowling, and fielding. I want to come out to bat when the situation demands. Lahore’s crowd always supported us, and tomorrow is a big day; hopefully, we will play well, and hopefully, we will win,” he added.
He further stated, “In big games, there will be pressure. If the toss doesn’t go our way, it is even harder, and we spoke about we have to do well regardless of batting or bowling first. The balls on a hard length at the end were gripping when we bowled first. We have the team to get these runs, credit to Tahir for how he batted,” said Shaheen Afridi.
