DUBAI: Quetta Gladiators recorded the biggest win by runs in the Pakistan Super League history by defeating Karachi Kings by 67 runs in tonight’s second game in Dubai.
Courtesy a fiery knock of 90 runs by Opener Shane Watson assisted with Kevin Pieterson’s half-century, Quetta Gladiators posted a score of 180 runs against Karachi Kings.
Kings only scored 113 on the loss of eight wickets as the Sarfraz-led Gladiators’ bowling attack did not allow Kings to dominate the game in the second innings of the game either.
Watson and Pietersen effectively neutralised the Kings’ bowling attack, by smashing boundaries all over the ground.
The Australian opener had given one easy catch during the game when he was on 54, but Usman Khan Shinwari dropped it – the mistake severely costed Imad Wasim-led team.
Gladiators cemented their domination in the game by picking two early key wickets in the start of their innings.
Muhammad Nawaz stumped opener Joe Denly on the very first over the match, while in the next over Kings’ decision to send Shahid Afridi did not prove beneficial as the senior batsman in his typical fashion was dismissed by fast bowler Rahat Ali by giving an easy catch over mid-off area.
