Lahore made an excellent comeback after losing 3 wickets for just 12 runs inside the powerplay.

Another half-century from Fakhar and a 48-ball hundred from Brooks helped Lahore to score 197 runs in the first innings.

Faheem Ashraf was brilliant with the ball as he picked up 3 wickets in his spell including two big wickets of Salt and Ghulam in the same over.

If Quetta want to qualify for the playoffs, they have to pray that Islamabad must lose their last game by a huge margin but first Quetta will need to win their last group match against Karachi Kings. 

Lahore Qalandars    20 overs    197-7

Brook 102*(49)             Faheem 3-28                                                                                                                          Fakhar 51 (41)               Dawson 1-31

In reply, Rahmanullah Gurbaz was once again looking good but after smashing Shaheen for a six and four in the 3rdover, he played a bad shot on a full toss delivery and got caught out.

On the very next ball, Shaheen clean bowled Mubasir to pick up 2 in 2 balls.

Quetta started well in the powerplay although they lost 2 wickets but still they managed to score 59 runs from it.

After the Powerplay, the spinners took the charge and they just blocked the runs.

Rashid was brilliant in his last game of the season as he will be leaving for national duties today.

Lahore Qalandars didn’t give any chance to Islamabad to free their hands after the end of powerplay and they picked up wickets at regular intervals. 

Islamabad managed to score only 131 runs with the loss of 9 wickets from their 20 overs and thus, they lost the match by a big margin of 66 runs.

Quetta will be very pleased with this defeat of Islamabad and their hopes of qualifying to the playoffs are still alive.

Four bowlers including Shaheen, Zaman, Rashid, and Rauf picked up 2 wickets each while David Weise grabbed one wicket in the last over of the match. 

Excellent comeback by Lahore

Lahore had a very bad start after electing to bat first.

Faheem Ashraf bowled an extraordinary 2nd over in which he picked up two big wickets of Phil Salt and Kamran Ghulam.

The situation got even worst with the run-out of Muhammed Hafeez as Lahore was struggling at 12-3.

But Fakhar Zaman and Brooks rescued their side with their brilliant partnership.

Fakhar scored yet another half-century this season which proves why he is the top scorer of IPL 2022.

Harry Brook also played brilliantly for his unbelievable batting performance. 

Brook’s outstanding hundred

Harry Brook was outstanding today as he is the one who rescued his side to put a to a big total.
