Earlier in the evening, Lahore Qalandars opted to bowl which is always the norm in case of a rain affected match and allowed Peshawar Zalmi to score 132 runs in their allotted 12 overs. It was some serious hitting by the likes of Tom Banton and Haider Ali at the top with Lewis Gregory chipping in at the death with a couple of sixes.
Lahore Qalandars struggled to chase a steep target in spite of brisk start by openers Fakhar Zaman and Chris Lynn. Lewis Gregory halted the momentum by picking up two wickets in the same over and Lahore Qalandars never recovered from that blow as they ended up 16 runs short of Peshawar’s total at the end of 12 overs.
