Kings thrash Qalandars by 86 runs

Sultans sit atop the PSL 8 table after win over Zalmi

Right-handed opener Muhammad Akhlaq struck a magnificent half-century on debut bowlers bolstered Karachi Kings to a dominating 86-run victory over Lahore Qalandars in the last group fixture of the Pakistan Super League (PSL) season eight.

Opting to bat first, the Kings’ batters dominated the depleted Qalandars’ bowling attack as the visitors piled up a massive total on the scoreboard after some collective effort. Earlier, the Kings got off to an unwanted start as opening batter Haider Ali fell in the first over after managing to score eight off five deliveries.
