Just a magnificent win and a huge congratulations for Multan Sultans as they have officially qualified for the top order. What a fantastic performance.
Courtesy a wonderful knock by Rilee Rossouw who led the way for them and really set it up at the top.
What a stunning performance. Kieron Pollard, let’s not forget his contribution tonight.
Jubilation all around, Mohammad Rizwan ۔ the happy captain and why not.
Take a look at the scorecard, 242/6 Peshawar Zalmi made, once again where they were unable to defend.
Babar Azam amongst the runs, 73 off 39 balls, Saim Ayub also chipping in with swashbuckling 58.
In response it was Rilee Rossouw show 121 in just 51 balls. He had support from Kieron Pollard.
Anwar Ali, great chameo from him as well, unbeaten 24 off just 8 balls. In the end Multan Sultans winning by 4 wickets.
Rossouw smashed his own record for fastest century in the PSL and gave Multan its fifth win.
After adding a brisk 99 runs with Kieron Pollard (52), Rossouw raised his century off 41 balls and bettered his previous PSL record of a 43-ball century against Quetta in 2020.
Rossouw was eventually caught at long on by stand-in Peshawar captain Tom Kohler-Cadmore after Babar Azam felt sick at the change of innings.
Earlier, Babar and Saim shared a second successive century stand for Peshawar.
Multan fast bowler Abbas Afridi took 4-39 and Pollard made two brilliant catches on the boundary. But Kohler-Cadmore took 24 off the last over to leave fast bowler Anwar Ali with the second most expensive figures in the history of PSL, at 1-66.
Multan joined Lahore Qalandars and Islamabad in the playoffs. Peshawar and Quetta Gladiators still have a chance to qualify.
