Hat-Trick of Akeal Hossein

Even the hat trick of Akeal Hossein was wasted by Quetta gladiator’s batters, Quetta came back brilliantly in the second half of their bowing. And Akeal Hossain takes the wicket of dangerous Amir Jamal, then he bowled and Riley Rossouw takes a catch at slip to complete his hat-trick. It was the first hat trick of this year HBL PSL 9. And was done by a foreign Left-arm spinner player.

Despite Hossain’s master class in his bowling and hat trick, Zalmi was somehow able to reach a total of 196-8. In reply to the 2nd innings of Quetta, the gladiators started fumbling no batter was able to stand out from the rest to fight except for a little cameo of Jason Roy a stylish English player from England who has 150+ scores to his name in the last season of HBL PSL 8. Scored only 16 of 16 balls. 

Quetta Fumbled Batting

Quetta Gladiators captain and all the batters combined crossed the 100-run mark and was null and dusted on just 120 runs in 20 overs. Now Quetta Gladiators has officially knocked out from the HBL PSL 9 playoffs because of the continuous poor performance from season to season. They were the best team in the first 6 seasons of HBL PSL.

Peshawar Zalmi can easily reach the top 2 in the table standings if they beat Islamabad United on Sunday.  Gladiators need to win at least 1 out of 2 of their matches to reach the playoffs based on net run rate.
