The score of 262 and 3 is the best ever recorded by Multan in the history of the competition.
The fact that the toss won by Quetta and bowled first by them against Multan in the 28th match of the Pakistan Super League in 8th season that is currently taking place at Cricket Stadium in Pindi should be brought to your attention.
After Sarfaraz Ahmed was unable to recover from the injured finger he sustained in the previous match, Mohammad Nawaz took over as captain of Quetta. Ahmed had missed the previous match as well.
Multan Sultans Inning:
Usman Khan, the opener for Multan, scored century runs scores which is fastest in the history of the Pakistan Super League in just 36 balls during their match against Quetta, which also resulted in Multan posting the highest total in the history of the tournament.
Rossouw, Usman’s teammate, had previously held the record for the fastest century, which he achieved in 41 balls during a day before yesterday match against Peshawar Zalmi. Usman broke the record by one ball. He was successful in scoring 120 runs in 43 balls by hitting twelve fours and 9 sixes, which contributed to his total.
In just 29 deliveries, Mohammad Rizwan amassed 55 runs, the majority of which came from 6 fours and 2 sixes.
Tim David was still not out after scoring 43 runs in just 25 balls, four of which were huge sixes. He faced no opposition.
While Mohammad Nawaz took one wicket, Qais was responsible for two of the team’s dismissals.
Most Expensive Bowler:
The spinner for Quetta, Qais Ahmed, was responsible for the bowling that is most expensive in the entire history of the Pakistan Super League by allowing 77 runs to be scored in just four overs. Additionally, this bowling is tied for third place as in the history of Twenty20 cricket this is the most expensive bowling figure.
Highest Inning Total:
The team from Multan finished with the best record in the history of the competition, posting a score of 262–3.
When Islamabad United scored 247-2 against Zalmi in year 2021, this was previously the biggest score ever recorded.
Quetta Gladiators Inning:
Quetta were only able to score 253 runs after 20 overs despite having a massive 263 runs target to reach.
In the final match of league stage of Quetta of the tournament, despite the fact that Omair Yousuf scored 67 runs off 36 balls and Iftikhar Ahmed scored 53 runs off 31, the team was unable to reach the target score.
Abbas Afridi, a pace bowler for the team that ended up victorious, finished with figures of 47 runs and taking 5 wickets in 4 overs, including a hat trick.
Highest Aggregate Match Score:
It is important to note that the 515 runs scored in this game set a new record for the greatest match aggregate in the history of Twenty20, which has seen more than 12,000 matches played.
During the eighth season of the (PSL), which took place on Saturday in Rawalpindi, the Multan Sultans won by nine runs, eliminating the Quetta Gladiators from contention for a spot in the postseason.
Before the match, Gladiators were still in position to earn a spot in the postseason of the current season of the Pakistan Super League (PSL 8). They had to win their final match of league stage against Sultans by a significant margin, but that did not occur during that match.
Peshawar was able to secure the spot in the next round of the competition thanks to the success of Multan, who had previously secured their position in the postseason of the tournament.
QG and KK have been eliminated one again from contention for a spot in the playoffs, just as they did the year before.
