Sharjeel, Watson bat Islamabad to big win over Lahore

After struggling in previous matches, Islamabad United finally succeeds to bag a convincing big victory over Lahore Qalandars in the Pakistan Super League (PSL) 9th match played on 10th February 2016 here in Sharjah Cricket Stadium.

The win was the result of brilliant batting performance by Sharjeel Khan and Shane Watson which guided Islamabad United to big eight-wicket victory over Lahore Qalandars. Despite of chasing a huge target of 167 runs the Islamabad United got a firm first wicket opening partnership of 153 runs. Both the players played freely and hit shots in every corner of the ground. Lahore Qalandars bowlers looked helpless in front of both batsmen.

Watson scores 79 runs off 47 balls before he was caught behind on the delivery of Ehsan Adil. But it was little too late as Islamabad United had almost reached close to the target and were only 14 runs away from the victory.

Speaking on the post-match ceremony Islamabad captain Watson said:

“For us, to restrict Lahore to 166 was an awesome effort. Sharjeel hits the ball, very powerful batter. I struggled early on and he took some pressure off me. The local talent is incredible. The young batsmen have some really good skills. It has been an exciting tournament. The last game was close and important.”

Sharjeel khan was declared man of the match due to his brilliant performance with the bat. He remained unbeaten on 79 runs.
