Batting first, Quetta saw skipper Sarfaraz Khan get off to a solid start but his innings was cut short by a brilliant catch at the boundary by Mubasir Khan.
The slog sweep from Sarfaraz looked like a sure shot six but Mubasir timed his jump to perfection and made sure he didn’t touch the boundary line on his landing. The effort stunned fans as his teammates celebrated.
Celebrations after the catch went on for a long time and in a video going viral on social media, Pakistan pacer Hasan Ali can be seen cheering after Mubasir’s effort.
Earlier, Lahore Qalandars registered a 21-run win over Multan Sultans in their previous Pakistan Super League (PSL) match. Qalandars opted to bat after Sam Billings and Abdullah Shafiq scored 54 and 48 respectively and posted a total of 180/9 in 20 overs.
Later, Sultans were restricted to 159/7 after Rashid Khan took three wickets. Apart from a high-scoring match, the fans also witnessed heart-warming moments on the field which boosted the sporting spirit.
During the fifth over of Sultan’s chase, a sharp delivery from fast bowler Haris Rauf hit rival captain Mohammad Rizwan on the elbow. Moaning in pain, Rizwan had to drop his bat and completed the single with great difficulty.
After the delivery, fast bowler and Qalandars captain Shaheen Afridi came forward and tried to console Rizwan, who was visibly in pain. While Rizwan tried to convince the pacer that he was fine, Shaheen pointed to the dugout to seek medical help.
