PSL 2023: Tayyab, bowlers script Karachi’s thumping win over Multan
Debutant Tayyab Tahir starred in Karachi Kings’ thumping 66-run win over Multan Sultans in the 14th game of the Pakistan Super League season eight (PSL 8).
After being asked to bat, Karachi took an aggressive start thanks to James Vince’s baton charge. He seemed to take the game away, but Multan made a good comeback on the back of Anwar Ali’s intelligent bowling. He removed Vince for 11-ball 27 in the powerplay.
Debutant Tayyab Tahir and Matthew Wade added 109 runs for the second wicket before the former departed for his 65. Wade also perished soon after for 47-ball 46. Multan bowlers took the charge from there and gave away only 37 runs in the final five overs, conceding just two boundaries – a four and a six – that too in the final over.
Another PSL8 heartbreak for Karachi Kings in Multan
Multan’s was a reasonable start as they scored 41 runs in the first five overs, losing only one wicket of Shan Masood (25). Things looked in Multan’s control until Tabraiz Shamsi came to bowl. He destroyed Multan’s batting lineup with his magical figures of 3/18 in his 4 overs.
No Multan Sultans’ batter, other than the top two, Shan (25) and Mohammad Rizwan (29), could touch the 20-run mark, as they skittled out to just 101 runs in the 17th over.
Shoaib Malik, 3/16 in 3.3 overs, and Akif Javed 2/8 in 2 overs, were other key performers for Karachi.
With this emphatic win, Karachi now jump to the third spot with 4 points in 6 games.
