Nawaz bamboozled Hodge first ball

Mohammad Nawaz has been rated as the best new talent that has surfaced from the Pakistan domestic cricket showing his passion and commitment to the game. Nawaz has been a fine choice by the Quetta Gladiators.

At the moment, he is the best all-rounder from all the teams taking part in the PSL. The left arm spin bowler has shown a lot of spirit in all the games he has played for his side Quetta Gladiators. Nawaz was the man of the match in the first playoff between Quetta Gladiators and Peshawar Zalmi.

His three wickets and especially the two he caught back to the back of Hafeez and Hodge turned a low-scoring game in the favor of the Quetta Gladiators. Nawaz bowled brilliantly in the game and showed that he can bowl economically under pressure.

Hafeez was his first scalp whom he bowled outs Hafeez tried to steer him between point and third man area.Hodge was the next man in and the first ball he faced was the one he would remember for a very long time.

The ball was pitched on middle and off stump line and Nawaz then made it turn a long way. Hodge went on his front foot to cover every possible movement on the ball but his amount of spin was so much that it still was able to take the ball away from the wooden part of the bat.


The ball passes the outside edge of the bat and then hit the timber. The red lights flashed and there were roars and cheers inside and outside the field. Quetta Gladiators have a huge fan following and this was their best moment of the night till the game ended.

This is probably the best ball any spinner has bowled in the PSL so far. Nawaz has shown great potential with his all-round abilities and which is why he is now a part of the Pakistan T20 squad for the Asia Cup and World T20.

Nawaz was the man of the match against Peshawar Zalmi in the first playoff. Defending a total of just 133, the Quetta Gladiators were required to get early wickets and Nawaz provided them two on two balls. First Hafeez and then Hodge.

Hafeez lost his off stump playing a cut towards the point and on the very next ball; Hodge was cleaned up on an absolute Jaffa. This ball pitched on the middle stump at a length that made Hodge play at it by going to his front foot.
