Dhani, Maqsood propel Multan to their fourth consecutive win

The right-arm seamer took four wickets as Multan slammed Lahore Qalandars by 80 runs

Shahnawaz Dhani (4/5) and Sohaib Maqsood (40-ball 60) propelled Multan Sultans to their fourth consecutive win in the Pakistan Super League 2021 on Friday (June 18). They smashed Lahore Qalandars by 80 runs and are now placed second on the points table

Qalandars, in their chase of 170, were bundled out for 89 in the 16th over. Dhani, who recorded his career-best figures, accounted for Fakhar Zaman (13), James Faulkner (22), Rashid Khan (2) and Shaheen Shah Afridi (2) in his 3.1 overs.

The right-arm pacer also became the leading wicket-taker in the  PSL 6 with 18 wickets at 14 runs per dismissal in eight matches. Imran Khan too picked up 3 for 24, while Blessing Muzarabani grabbed 2 for 26.

Earlier, after being put in to bat by Qalandars captain Sohail Akhtar, Sultans got off to a poor start as Afridi dismissed in-form Shan Masood lbw on the first ball of the match. This was the third instance of the left-armer striking on the first ball of a PSL match.

After Shan’s departure, Sohaib joined Mohammad Rizwan and the pair added 45 off 30 balls before Rizwan fell to Haris for 15 off 20. Johnson Charles (10) was the next to go with the scorecard reading 60 for 3 in the eighth over.

The pair of Sohaib and Rilee Rossouw got together and helped Sultans stage a comeback. The pair added 63 runs for the fourth-wicket and at one stage 200 looked on the cards for Sultans but the departure of Rossouw (29 off 24) in the 15th over and Sohaib in the 17th over dried up the runs for Sultans.

That the Sultans were able to cross the 150-mark and post 169 for 8 was because of belligerent batting from Sohail Tanvir, who scored an unbeaten 26 off nine balls, smashing three fours and two sixes. The left-handed batsman struck two towering sixes and three fours in the last over of the innings bowled by Haris which went for 24 runs.

For Qalandars, Afridi picked three wickets, while Faulkner took two wickets. Qalandars, who suffered their fourth loss in a row, have now slipped to the fourth spot.
