Islamabad United Won the 1st match of HBL PSL 2017
Islamabad United captain Misbah after winning the toss expressed hope that there would be additional competition between the sides this season, adding that Smith, Watson, Hadden and Billings were his four foreign players.
Peshawar Zalmi captain Darren Sammy said that the toss can not have an effect on the end result of the 1st match of Pakistan Super league. “We have a lot of expertise in our squad, around five or six captains. Hopefully we will place it out there on the sphere.” AND HE’S GONE!!! First ball, first wicket. Mohammad Irfan bowls a sensible length ball to Zalmi gap hitter Mohammad Hafeez, nicks to second slip.
What a start for Mohammad Irfan of Islamabad United defending champions of Pakistan Super League!! Islamabad United team embody Sharjeel Khan, Shane Watson, Dwayne Smith, Misbahul Haq, Brad Haddin, Sam Billings, Imran Khalid, Amad Butt, Saeed Ajmal, Mohammad Lappish and Mohammad Irfan. Peshawar Zalmi embody Mohammad Hafeez, Sohaib Maqsood, Kamran Akmal, Eoin Morgan, Haris Sohail, Iftikhar Ahmed, Shahid Afridi, Darren Sammy, Chris Jordan, Hasan Ali and Junaid Khan.
Islamabad United have hold a scattering of charming young players for which this event declares a wonderful chance to understand their potential. Sharjeel Khan is arguably the expert property in Pakistan’s T20 side as of his prolific Pakistan Super League last year, a 62-ball 117 in the trilogy-qualifying last showcasing the danger he poses. Rumman Raees, whose rise has been rather less meteoric, will additionally be wanting to create on a stellar tournament in 2016, where he took eight wickets with a tidy economy rate of six.79. Key overseas player Sam Billings had a unsatisfactory PSL last year, but he has become a fixture in England’s limited-overs squad (if not the enjoying XI) since. He represented the state capital Sixers in the massive Bash this season, playing simply 5 games due to international duty, but of his four innings, he was the Sixers’ top-scorer in three. An international T20 strike rate of 154.65 owes a lot of to a 25-ball fifty three in port in a Man-of- the-Match winning performance against Asian nation. This tournament will be contend within the same conditions, on the same grounds. Pair him with Sharjeel at the high of the order, and we would possibly resolve what Powerplay very suggests that.
