The Pakistan Super League (PSL) season that is now playing is the talk of the town. The T20 league has been getting a lot of attention from spectators, thanks to some outstanding knocks and some contentious situations. A humorous event that occurred during a recent game between Quetta Gladiators and Islamabad United was recorded and had the crowd in stitches. In their prior encounter, Islamabad defeated the Gladiators by a score of 63 runs. Islamabad chose to bat first and amassed a massive total of 220/6 in 20 overs. Afterwards, Hasan Ali claimed a three-wicket haul as the Gladiators were bowled out for 157.
Mohammad Hasnain, a bowler for Islamabad, bowled a yorker to Shadab Khan in the third over of his team’s innings before sprinting to the end of the striker to stop the batter from getting a single. The Gladiators captain and wicketkeeper Sarfaraz Ahmed got in and pretended to hit Shabad when the Islamabad captain faked to tackle Hasnain.
Social media users shared this occurrence widely after seeing their fans’ amusing behaviours.
During the game, Islamabad’s wicketkeeper Azam Khan led the team in scoring with a ferocious 97 runs off 42 balls. Together with him, Asif Ali scored 42 runs off of 24 balls to help his team reach a sizable total. Mohammad Hasnain and Odean Smith both claimed two wickets for the Gladiators. Later, despite solid performances from Mohammad Hafeez (48 off 26) and Sarfaraz Ahmed, the Gladiators fell short by 63 runs (41 off 36).
Islamabad had won three of their previous four games, while the Gladiators had suffered their fourth loss. The Gladiators are now in last place on the points table, while the team led by Shadab Khan is in second.
