Shane Watson and Ahmed Shehzad thumped half-hundreds of years to help Quetta Gladiators fit the bill for the playoffs with an agreeable eight-wicket prevail upon most despised opponents Peshawar Zalmi in Abu Dhabi.
Watson crushed six sixes and the same number of limits in his undefeated 55-ball 91 while Shehzad scored a 45-ball 50 as Quetta updated a 166-run focus in 17.4 overs.
Kamran Akmal broke 50-ball 72 with seven limits and four sixes to push Peshawar to 165-4 after they were put into bat.
With the triumph – their 6th in 12 recreations against Peshawar in PSL history – Quetta turned into the primary group to make it to the year’s playoffs. They have six successes in eight diversions and 12.
Peshawar are second with ten out of eight matches, having won five and losing three.
Watson and Shehzad included match-winning 129 keeps running for the second wicket as an impressive Peshawar pace assault discovered wickets difficult to find after Sameen Gul caught Ahsan Ali for only one.
At the point when Shehzad was expelled, bowled by Umaid Asif, Quetta required 29 for triumph. Rilee Rossouw gave Watson a decent organization amid his four-ball 12 with one six and a limit.
Peshawar’s Hasan Ali neglected to get a wicket after his 18 wickets made him the most astounding wicket-taker in the group.
At the point when Peshawar batted they were given a lively beginning of 38 by Kamran and Andre Fletcher who made 28-ball 26 with two fours and a six. Yet, once Kamran was expelled just Kieron Pollard found the scoring quick, crushing 21-ball 44 not out with seven fours and a six.
