Lahore Qalandars hold nerves to clinch second consecutive PSL trophy

In a nerve-wracking Pakistan Super League final, Lahore Qalandars became the first team to successfully defend their title and take the trophy home Saturday after beating Multan Sultans by one run at Lahore’s Gaddafi Stadium.

Chasing a daunting target of 201 runs, the Sultans came very close to achieving the target but lost by one run.

The Qalandars have become the first team to successfully defend the PSL title.

During the run-chase, David Wiese provided the breakthrough in the fourth over of the innings after dismissing opener Usman Khan. The right-hander scored 18 runs in 12 balls.

Despite the early loss, the Multans ensured that they kept up with the required run-rate as Rilee Rossouw and Mohammad Rizwan stitched an impressive partnership of 64 runs in 42 balls.

However, Rossouw was cleaned up by Rashid Khan just when the batter threatened to take the game away from the Qalandars. The South African scored 52 runs in 32 balls.
