Islamabad United at the moment is controlling things their way. Quetta Gladiators have lost their two top order batsmen Bismillah Khan and Kevin Pieterson inside the first 6 overs and they are just 36 runs on the board.
Irfan struck in his first over when he got Bismillah caught by Haddin behind the stumps. This was an excellent take but at the same time, the ball did not hit the bat but the arm of Bismillah. The appeal was so spontaneous and loud that the umpire got impressed with it.
After that, Pieterson came in and started blasting the ball. He was in the mood to hit every ball and as he was looking more and more dangerous on every ball he was facing, Russell got him on the first ball of his spell.
Pieterson was the main man for Quetta Gladiators and he is now gone. Sanga is here and with Ahmad Shahzad and both are trying to stabilise the early damages. Misbah is constantly making a lot of changes in the bowling line up for Islamabad Untied.
Islamabad United are keeping it tight at the moment. They are not allowing the two batters to hit much to the boundaries. They also are in no mood to give away easily singles and doubles so things are looking good for Islamabad United.
At the moment, Aleem Dar must be thinking heavens and his reflexes that have saved him from getting to the hospital. Sangakkara hit a perfect straight drive and Aleem was in the way of the ball. He is lucky to have been saved as he fell on the ground immediately the ball reached near him.
slamabad United have won the toss in this final game of PSL and they have decided to bowl first and go with their strength which is bowling first and chasing totals in the second innings. Now this might have surprised a lot of people.
