PSL 8: Sarfaraz calls Nawaz ‘history maker captain’

Sarfaraz Ahmed, the regular captain of the Quetta Gladiators, lauded Mohammad Nawaz for leading the team against Peshawar Zalmi on Wednesday in the 25th game of the ongoing Pakistan Super League (PSL) season 8. Sarfaraz thanked his teammates on Twitter after Quetta successfully chased down a record 241 runs, especially Nawaz who led the team for the first time in eight years.

Pakistan’s Mohammad Nawaz wants to be ‘a proper all-rounder

“Enjoy a thrilling T20 match. Babar Azam, master class. Elegant Saim Ayub. Beautiful Hafeez Bhai. Jason Roy played some incredibly controlling and powerful baseball. Captain Nawaz, a history maker. Bravo, team Quetta “He composed. It was the first PSL game Sarfaraz has missed in eight years. While doing his duties behind the stumps, the wicketkeeper-batsman suffered a finger injury. His finger managed to avoid breaking when Naseem Shah’s quick ball struck it, but it disqualified him from playing.

No fracture was present in Sarfaraz’s finger, but he needed to rest because of swelling, according to his franchise. Nawaz was granted the captaincy while he was away, and Quetta was fortunate enough to defeat Peshawar in a chase. Quetta lost Martin Guptill before starting the massive 241-run chase, but Roy carried his team to victory on his alone. After playing for his country in ODIs against Bangladesh, Roy returned to the Gladiators and slammed a century off just 44 balls, the second-fastest in PSL history.

Once his side was set to chase a massive 241 runs in 20 overs, the right-handed batter smacked Peshawar bowlers all over the park to put up a superb spectacle. Roy almost missed being the first PSL century-scorer. Rilee Rossouw of the Multan Sultans held the record after scoring a century off 43 balls against the Quetta Gladiators in 2020. He did, however, succeed in breaking the previous record for the greatest personal score in the PSL. He went 145 runs without being defeated.
