Karachi Kings lost their fourth consecutive match in Pakistan Super League (PSL) 7 as Peshawar Zalmi registered their second victory in the tournament. As a result, Peshawar Zalmi have moved to the fourth spot in the PSL 2022 points table while Kings stay at the bottom of the table.
Peshawar got off to a formidable start with opener Hazratullah Zazai scoring a quickfire 41. They struggled in the middle phase of the innings before veteran middle-order batter Shoaib Malik smashed a brilliant half-century to take them to a total of 173/4.
Karachi got off to the worst possible start as Sharjeel Khan and Sahibzada Farhan went back to the pavilion without scoring. Captain Babar Azam managed to score a fifty but some brilliant bowling by Zalmi pacers restricted the run-flow. In the end, it was an uphill task for the Karachi batter to keep up with the required run rate as they could only manage to score 164/6. Zalmi won the match by 9 runs.
