Lendl Simmons from West Indies played one of the best innings of Pakistan Super League so far by hitting endless sixes and fours all around the ground.
Lendl Simmons and Shakib Ul Hassan laid a foundation for an easy win for Karachi Kings. With their steady but sound partnership, both brought Kings out of a difficult time, when they were 2 down for just 4 runs.
Shakib was lucky enough to receive a chance when Dwane Bravo missed a stunner. It proved a game changer for Kings and wrote their first ever win in Pakistan Super League.
Lahore Qalandars scored just 125 runs in 20.0 overs which was a little bit easier for Karachi Kings to chase. Chris Gayle could not make mark in his opening match of Pakistan Super League and went for just 6 runs of 4 balls with one 4.
Nothing went right for Qalandars today. Right after Chris Gayle, another hard hitting batsman Chris Delport ran out Iftikhar Ahmad on the bowling of Shoaib Malik. Azhar Ali, as usual, tried hard to bring its sinking boat back on the top but it did not last much and Ali fell a pray to a beauty from Shakib Ul Hassan, a talented Bangladeshi all rounder.
