Zalmi knock out United

Lahore Qalandars firmly sit atop the PSL 8 points table after win over Sultans

Peshawar Zalmi skipper Babar Azam’s 64 off 39 and Salman Irshad’s 2-18 inspired the team to a narrow 12-run win to knock out Islamabad United in their PSL-8 eliminator at Gaddafi Stadium.

The victory has set up a tantalising second eliminator against hosts Lahore Qalandars on Friday, with the victor set to take on Multan Sultans in the final which has been rescheduled for Saturday.
