Watch the highlights of all the wickets taken by Rashid Khan.

Batted, the Qalandars had a nightmare start with Wahab Riaz and Mohammad Irfan causing all kinds of trouble for the batsmen. Lahore Qalandars quickly found themselves faltering to 25 for four in 7.3 overs.

Ben Dunk and Tim David came to the rescue with a brilliant 81-race partnership to bring their team back from the dead. Dunk was sacked for a 33-ball fine of 48 while David went undefeated on 64 on just 36 balls.

James Faulkner produced late fireworks with a 7-bullet 22 cameo to help the Qalandars display 170 for eight.

In response, Zalmi immediately found himself on the back foot with Faulkner removing the two openers – Kamran Akmal and Haider Ali – on the second round.

Malik and Miller stabilized the ship with a stand of 51 races for the third wicket. Rashid Khan then took center stage, breaking the back of Zalmi’s pursuit with his five-star performance.


Even as chaos unfolded around him, Malik fought a lone battle to keep his team in the hunt. But Peshawar Zalmi was never able to recover from the damage done by Rashid and Shoaib’s dismissal in the penultimate turned out to be the last nail in the coffin.
