PSL 2021: Islamabad vs Peshawar sets bar high amid new records

Islamabad United thrashed all records in the history of the Pakistan Super League. The 26th match took place between Islamabad United and Peshawar Zalmi yesterday at the Sheikh Zayed Stadium, Abu Dhabi.

Both teams were eager to win the match to secure their positions in the league. Islamabad United has already qualified for the play-offs while Zalmi stands at the third position in the table.

Islamabad United batsman and captain for the match Usman Khawaja took all the attention and praises as he scored a knock of 105* on just 56 balls becoming the record-breaking batsman to do so, earlier in the league, Sharjeel Khan of Karachi Kings has scored a knock of 105*.

The team had also set the highest total in the history of PSL, 247/2 in just 20 overs with also setting the bars high as they set another record of highest second-wicket partnership. His brilliant knock was well-supported by Asif Ali, Colin Munro, and Brandon King, all scoring in the 40s.

In response to the total set this high, Zalmi’s 232/6, also was recorded as the highest second innings total by any team from Pakistan. Zalmi has created the new Pakistan record. In PSL, the previous best second batting total was 204/4, set by Lahore Qalandars. This is also the 6th highest second batting total by a team in any T20 match in the world.

The batting display was extravagant by both the teams, which involved 25 sixes and 45 fours, which took the match total to 479 runs. This 6th highest match aggregate ever in any T20 match in the world is the highest in any Pakistani tournament. United’s bowler Zafar Gohar conceded 65 runs from his four overs to claim the unwanted record of most expensive bowler in one PSL inning.
