Sultans, Qalandars eliminated as top four advance to PSL playoffs

Sultans, Qalandars eliminated as top four advance to PSL playoffs”

Peshawar Zalmi in a must-win game are facing Karachi Kings at Sharjah Cricket Stadium on Thursday afternoon as a loss will simply cause Darren Sammy's men exit from Pakistan Super League (PSL) 2018 prior to Play-Offs.

Former champions Islamabad United will now take on Karachi Kings in the qualifier in Dubai on Sunday and the victor will book a direct flight to the March 25 final in Karachi. Multan Sultans, who were on top of the league standings at the halfway mark, along with Lahore Qalandar are out. They played nine matches and won seven games.

Their destiny was not in their hands and so it proved to be as Karachi Kings triumphed on the night.

Karachi Kings lost their penultimate match against Peshawar by 44 runs to give their opponents a lifeline.

Winning the toss and electing to field first, Karachi Kings bowlers did not allow Islamabad United batmen to settle as wickets fell at regular intervals. Irfan too took two wickets.

Intelligent batting from Joe Denly (36), Khurram Manzoor (15), Babar Azam (29*) and Colin Ingram (31*) helped Karachi Kings to finish second on the points table.

Asif Ali remained the sole bright spot in Islamabad's innings, tonking a 14-ball 34, an innings which included one boundary and four sixes, smashing two hits over the fence each to Mohammad Irfan and Tymal Mills in the 12th and 14th over respectively.

Islamabad United have already qualified for the play-offs stage.

Walton came in for their prolific scorer Luke Ronchi, while Mohammad Sami made way for Steve Finn.

Then, the Karachi Kings knocked off the runs with three overs to spare.
