  • Fizz impresses on PSL debut

The third edition of the much-awaited Pakistan Super League (PSL) promising a month full of entertainment and quality cricket, is set to explode into action at the Dubai International Cricket Stadium on Thursday.

Early form has to favour the Sultans who are playing some excellent cricket right now and can make it three wins from three.

Kumar Sangakkara scored his second consecutive half-century while Shoaib Malik scored a fluent 48 as Multan Sultans went on to post 179 and later defended the target comfortably by 43 runs against Lahore Qalandars in the third game of the Pakistan Super League in Dubai.




The league that was launched by a consortium of five entrepreneurs - with apprehensions looming over the tournament's feasibility on foreign soil - has not only grown in number and stature but also gone on to become the second biggest franchise tournament in the world after the Indian Premier League (IPL). Wahab Riaz, Chris Jordan and Hasan Ali are leading the pace attack of Peshawar Zalmi. This is a chance for all foodies and cricket lovers to unite and share the season's enthusiasm on one platform. In 39 balls they played 14 dot balls. "The coaches are motivating him and we will all be looking to work on our mistakes for the next game". Explaining his point of view, Raja in a chat with Business Recorder, said, "I believe that Islamabad United's pick Duminy is pretty good, as he plays outstandingly well against the spin and is tremendous while running between the wicket". He was bowled by Faheem Ashraf. Malik will be ably assisted by the supreme skills of Kumar Sangakkara but Shan Masood who is now the talk of the town due to his performances in the recently concluded Regional One-Day Cup and the hard-hitting power of Kieron Pollard will form the backbone of the Multan line-up.

All in all, a feast of runs, and if the last PSL is any guide, a plethora of wickets awaits the fans of Pakistan's top T20 tournament.
