Mohammad Irfan has struck for the Islamabad United in the very first over. The decision looks dubious but Bismillah Khan now has to walk back to the dugout. This was a quick ball and looked as if his the forearm of Bismillah.
The ball moved and hit the arm and Haddin took a neat and good catch but this definitely did not come from the bat. Irfan and his teammates were pretty sure that it was out. There was an immediate appeal from the keeper and the slip fielders.
Quetta Gladiators have lost their first man and now there will be a bit of pressure on them. Thought they will come up ith Kp and Sanga but still. At the moment, Irfan is on fire. He is bowling quick and his pace is again on the higher side.
The ball is moving a bit and this will test. Islamabad United have started with Irfan and Imran the left arm spinner. This is a good move. Sami will also make a difference in him next few moves along with Russell. They will now have to get KP.if they get him early hen Quetta Gladiators will definitely feel he heat. At the moment, Islamabad United are doing things the hard way against Quetta Gladiators.
Before the toss, in the pitch report, Pat Symcox said that there is a cloud cover and hence there will not be any dew factor involved in tonight;s final of PSL. this is a great news because we have seen the teams suffering while bowling with the wet ball in the second half.
At the toss Islamabad United captain, Misbah won it and went out to bowl first.Misbah said the same things. He said that he wanted to go with the strength and it is in their batting and chasing totals. Which is the reason they are going to bat first.
Misbah also said that there will not be much dew so both the teams now have equal chances. Sarfraz was happy that his team is batting first and this was their plan had they won the toss.
