PESHAWAR ZALMI won the 1st Eleminator by 5 wickets in final over. Defending the quite handsome total of 175, KING’s
Muhammad Ilyas was brilliant in his last over of the innings, while defending 7 runs, two drop catches and pathetic fielding in the match cost them the big loss.
Zalmi’s Hazratullah Zazai steal the show by smashing 77 on just 38 deliveries with the strike rate of 200 plus. With 10 fours and 5 towering sixes, he played the match winning knock and got his well deserved Man of the Match award.
Now, Karachi Kings knocked out of the tournament by Peshawar Zalmi, who will face the loser of 1st Qualifier, Islamabad United today. The winner of 2nd Eleminator will face the Multan Sultans in the final held on 24 June in Abu Dhabi Cricket Stadium.
