KARACHI: A loose ball by Muhammad Hasnain cost Quetta Gladiators the match as Peshawar Zalmi went on to win by three wickets, in the eighth match of the Pakistan Super League's six edition, held at Karachi's National Stadium on Friday.

The two sides, known for delivering nail-biters, once again lived up to expectations as the eighth match of the Pakistan Super League (PSL) 2021 went down to the wire.

It could have been even closer and likely gone to the final ball, had the ball not slipped out of Mohammad Hanain's hands in the final over and went for 5 byes, with just six needed.

Having set a a mammoth 199-run target, the Gladiators had things in control when they had Zami wobbled at 27-2. Then came contributions from everywhere as Imam-ul-Haq made 41, Haider Ali had 50, Shoaib Malik 34 but the two most important men were Sherfane Rutherford, who finished unbeaten at 36 and Wahab Riaz, whose consecutive sixes off Dale Steyn in the penultimate over kept Zalmi in the game.

Earlier, Sarfaraz had played a blinder, scoring 81 off just 47 balls to lead his side from the front.

Peshawar Zalmi and Quetta Gladiators have faced each other 17 times in PSL with both sides winning equal matches. One game ended as no-result.

SQUADS:

Peshawar Zalmi: Haider Ali, Kamran Akmal, Tom Kohler-Cadmore, Shoaib Malik, Wahab Riaz, Mujeeb Ur Rahman, Ravi Bopara, Sherfane Rutherford, Amad Butt, Umaid Asif, Saqib Mahmood, Imam-ul-Haq, Muhammad Imran, Mohammad Irfan, Ibrar Ahmed, and Mohammad Amir Khan.
