Qualify for PSL 2020 semi-finals
Lahore Qalandars broke out of the Pakistani Premier League round-robin stage for the first time in history as he defeated leader Murtan Sultan at Gaddafi Stadium on Sunday.
Qalandars made the final record in the first four PSL seasons and also started the campaign with a three-game losing streak. He used a 100-run opening score from opener Fakhar Zaman (57) and Chris Lynn to track 187 runs The goal of the points is set by Sudan.
Lynn’s hammering didn’t end there, as he continued to score his first PSL century (only 52 goals played) and made sure his team crossed the finish line. He ended with an undefeated 113 result, the highest personal score to date for PSL 2020.
Earlier, in the next game, Khushdil Shah’s excellent knocking helped Sudan get rid of the terrible start and achieved a considerable score of 186-6.
The league leader lost only four in the second game and lost two, respectively to Moeen Ali and Zeeshan Ashraf. Shan Masood (42) and Ravi Bopara (33) stabilized the ship a bit, but they were pretty good.
Khushdil’s late volley made this difficult, hitting 29 goals and 70 shots, hitting 6 6 and 5 4. It was his first half-century championship and needed it urgently, because of the left-handed willow, although one of the most promising geniuses in the area, did not win the game.
Lahore’s qualifications mean that the faint hope for the defending champions Quetta Gladiators to reach the semifinals becomes slim. The party led by Sarfaraz Ahmed must be the Karachi Kings of his hometown later tonight, but Lahore’s qualification means the fixture has been eliminated.
In order for Quetta to surpass Peshawar, they will need to eliminate the huge NRR difference, which, if not mathematically considered, will effectively take it out of the competition.
