PSL 2019 Match 2 Highlights – MS v KK
The second match was prospective of being an action replay of the first match, had it not been for Amir’s crucial 19th over with Shinwari-Umer duo controlling the middle overs: at least the first half of the match was. With a slow start, Multan charged in to a winning position when Malik hit Bopara for 24 runs but the Karachi Kings’ bowlers finally followed the old-book death bowling rule to clinch a victorious start to their journey.
The batting performance of Karachi Kings was a replica of what the Qalandars did the previous night. They were provided a glimmering start. Babar Azam started from where he had left in the South African tour and smoked first ball he faced for four past point. The starting two overs did not go for plenty but after that, the openers started to pick up the pace and cruised to 53 runs in the power play at a run rate of 8.3. They smartly paced the innings after that by placing the ball in gaps and taking singles and doubles, similar to what that Qalandar’s opening duo did the other night. They were 93, halfway through the innings. Even Boom Boom could not provide the breakthrough.
The 100 stand came in the 11th over which was the first time for Karachi Kings. Ilyas missed a half chance of Livingstone who by now had taken the role of the aggressor. This cost them a bit because he went on to score 82 runs off just 43 balls which included six sixes.
The pair was also intelligent enough to hit Afridi downtown which is not an easy thing to do. The pair exhibited a partnership of 155 which is the highest of PSL history. After he went out, the same Qalandari story repeated. Wickets began to tumble at regular intervals and not one batsman could hold the innings.
Babar Azam, after a slight knee twist, got out for 77. Four wickets fell for only 15 runs as the Multan’s bowlers adjusted their lengths. With only 5 runs of the 19th over, Karachi Kings could only manage 35 runs in the last 5 overs and lost 6 wickets. Sohail Khan struck a four on the last ball of the innings to give the Kings some momentum.
The chase started quite slowly, thanks to some great bowling by the ever-accurate Imad Wasim and Muhammad Amir. Their combined four overs in the power play only conceded 15 runs. Had it not been for Sohail Khan’s expensive fifth over, the power play score would have been quite lower than 38 runs.
Shinwari and Muhammad Umer took the charge from there and bowled their hearts out. Such was the control of bowling that Multan Sultans could only afford 59 runs in the first ten overs. It was the captain, Shoaib Malik that changed the course of the game by hitting a six and four off Sohail Khan’s second over followed by a Bopara massacre in the 14th.
It started off with four fours, each one in different directions; such were the skills of Malik. The fifth ball was a slower one but was picked up and hoisted above the long-off boundary. The over cost Karachi 24 runs. Shinwari finally took the crucial wicket of Malik in the 17th over.
Malik who was 14 off 14 balls, had raced to 52 off just 28 balls so this was a timely wicket. The things once again shifted to Multan’s favour when Sohail Khan was thrashed for 20 runs in the 18th over with Afridi and Hammad Azam sharing the onslaught equally. Multan required only 20 runs in the next two overs but Amir had other plans.
Not only did he uprooted the bails of Afridi but made Hammad loft a miscued shot to the man at wider long-off. The over was a sensational display of death bowling with fiery Yorkers. Amir finished the bowling figures with 25/4 which proved to be match winning. Despite having conceded 49 runs in his three, Imad gave the ball to Sohail Khan for the last over. Sohail kept his captain’s belief and bowled CJ Green after which Sultans could not manage to cross the line and Karachi finally won by 7 runs.
