Quetta Gladiators continued their late charge towards the Pakistan Super League (PSL) season 8 playoffs with a win over Peshawar Zalmi to move to 5th on the points table.
Their dreams of breaking their PSL playoffs drought seemed to be over when Zalmi posted a mammoth 240/2 on the board while batting first at Pindi Cricket Stadium before Jason Roy’s 145* guided them home with 10 balls to spare.
The Gladiators must now beat Multan in their last game to keep their slim chance of making the final four alive.
