Imad Wasim and Haider Ali Shine

The Peshawar Zalmi team batted first, scoring 185 runs for the loss of five wickets. Saim Ayub’s explosive innings of 73 off 44 balls set the tone, but the partnership between Mohammad Haris (40) and Rovman Powell (2) propelled them to a challenging total. Naseem Shah’s fiery bowling (3-30) kept the pressure on Islamabad.

In response, Islamabad United faced early setbacks, losing key wickets, including Alex Hales and Babar Azam. However, the heroics of Imad Wasim and Haider Ali turned the tide. Wasim’s unbeaten 59 off 40 balls and Ali’s blistering 52 not out off 29 balls, including five sixes, gave Islamabad victory. Their match-winning partnership of 98 runs in just eight overs sealed the deal.

Shadab Khan’s All-Round Performance
