Scorecard summary
Quetta Gladiators129(18 overs)
Peshawar Zalmi130/2(18.4 overs)

Shahid Afridi has been adjudged Man of the match for his match winning bowling figures.

Well, It was a clinical performance from Zalmi, They have out-batted, out-bowled, out-captained Quetta . Early on Wahab and Afridi ripped the opposition apart and bagged 7 wickets between them. Elliott and Zulfiqar stitched 63 run partnership for the last wicket and it was never going to be enough. Chasing 129, Hafeez and Malan gave them a blistering start and there was no looking back. Gul looked menacing but failed to delivery the goods needed. That's it from here, on behalf of Chandan, this is Thilak signing off, cheers.
