Lahore Qalandars hammer Quetta Gladiators by eight wickets

Lahore Qalandars picked up a comfortable eight-wicket victory over Quetta Gladiators in their Pakistan Super League (PSL) fixture at the Dubai International Cricket Stadium on Wednesday. 

Lahore Qalandars’ decision to bowl first paid off as the Quetta Gladiators’ top-order failed to provide any resistance to the opposition. The bowling attack was led by Sandeep Lamicchane who finished with impressive figures of 4-10 in four overs.

 

Only three Quetta batsmen managed to score in double figures as the side was bowled out for just 106 in 19.1 overs.

Gladiators bowlers managed to pick up wickets in the early stages of the run chase. Haris Sohail and AB de Villiers put on a 74-run partnership to guide the side to victory.

AB de Villiers top scored with 47 off 38 deliveries while Haris Sohail made 33 from 42 balls.
