PSL alert: Peshawar Zalmi score 148 in PSL final

Finally, the much-awaited final of Pakistan Super League (PSL) began at Gaddafi Stadium in Lahore as Quetta Gladiators won the toss and opted to bowl first against Peshawar Zalmi.

Gladiators skipper Sarfraz Ahmed says: “We choose to bowl. There is some pressure obviosuly but hopefully we play some good cricket. We have lost four good foreign players but we have others coming in Morne van Wyk, Anamul Haque Bijoy, Sean Ervive, Rayad Emrit are Quetta’s foreign players. Elton Chigumbura misses out.”

Zalmi skipper Darren Sammy says: “It looks like a good wicket. Last game we lost the toss and scored 180. The atmosphere is great and hopefully Peshawar comes out victorious. My good friend Lala said: ‘If we get to the final you should come to Lahore for the final’. Hopefully we can entertain and cricket will be the winner. We have an enforced change with Afridi getting injured. Iftikhar Ahmed replaces Afridi.”

Ahmed Shehzad says: “If Peshawar wins, Quetta wins, it’s a win-win situation for Pakistan.”
