PSL Highest Individual Score: The Lahore striker Qalandars scored one of the PSL’s highest individual scores last night.
During the sixth match of the ongoing seventh season of Pakistan Super League between Karachi Kings and Lahore Qalandars in Karachi, Lahore Qalandars’ first fly-half batsman, Fakhar Zaman’s PSL first century played a role holder in a 6-wicket win.
Chasing a 171-point target, Zaman scored a game-winning 106 (60) with the help of 12 fours and four sixes at a strike rate of 176.66 as the visitors sealed the chase with four deliveries remaining in the game .
Opening the bat with Abdullah Shafique (8), Zaman hit up three bounds from Aamer Yamin at second over. Soon Mohammad Ilyas was met with a six and four as Zaman continues to find limits despite falling wickets on the other side.
It was on the fourth delivery of the 12th that Zaman ran a single against Karachi all-rounder Imad Wasim to complete his half-century. In the following Wasim, Zaman hit two straight sixes to reduce the required run rate to 10.
What followed was a boundary flurry culminating with the 31-year-old hitting a six and three fours against Ilyas in the 18th, when the team needed just nine runs from two overs. It was not until the 18th century that Zaman completed its second century T20.
Zaman, who became only the second Qalandars striker and eighth overall to score a PSL century, ended up recording the sixth-highest tally in tournament history.
