Karachi Kings overcome Lahore Qalandars to win maiden PSL title

Karachi Kings overcome Lahore Qalandars to win maiden PSL title”

"This (win) is for Dean Jones and for the fans of Karachi Kings". Jones, who had coached Islamabad United in the past, took on the role at the Kings in March before the COVID-19 pandemic put a halt to cricket all over the world, with the PSL being halted just before the play-offs.

Azam, who was awarded the Man of the Match for his stellar half-century, became the only player to win the award in two consecutive playoff matches in a single edition of the tournament.

Fakhar followed him back after adding 27 runs to the total from 24 balls, four of which were hit for boundary.

"Karachi Kings owner Salman Iqbal awards an apartment to each player in the PSL-winning Karachi Kings team - in his real estate development project with DHA called ARY Laguna", Quraishi said in a tweet on Wednesday. There was also a cardboard cutout of Jones in the Kings' dugout that read "We miss you!"

Rauf then kept Qalandars in the game by having Iftikhar (4) and Rutherford (0) caught at mid-on but Imad's brace of boundaries meant it was Karachi who took the title, with Akram then quick to praise the hard work of late coach Jones for making their success possible.

Six of the seven Qalandars' wickets were shared between three pacers - Umaid (two for 18), Waqas Maqsood (two for 18) and Arshad Iqbal (two for 26) - while Imad returned one for six. The bounce wasn't true, and so we varied our pace and lines, and I think our bowlers executed their plans perfectly. Babar Azam played an undefeated scintillating knock of 63 tomake sure his team lift the coveted trophy.

"I have been having a good time with the bat. I just knew I had to be there at the finish, and in the end we chased it easily". "Obviously, anything can go wrong and in the end, we lost a couple of wickets all of a sudden, and that's why I'd chose to go in lower down the order, so we'd have some security at the end", he added. Babar Azam was once again in great form as he smashed an unbeaten 63 off 49 balls and they clinched the title.
