SHARJAH: Peshawar Zalmi took on Quetta Gladiators in Sharjah today.
The match was limited to 16 overs only due to interminent rain in Sharjah.
Peshawar Zalmi opener Tamim Iqbal scored a quickfire fifty to power his team to 117 off 16 overs in a rain-shortened match, after Gladiators tore through the Zalmi top order at the Sharjah Cricket Stadium on Friday.
Table topping Peshawar Zalmi won the toss earlier and chose to bowl against Quetta Gladiators, trailing right behind on the points table.
In a match shortened to 16 overs per side due to rain, the Gladiators got Hafeez, Kamran Akmal and Eoin Morgan out in quick succession, leaving the Zalmi three down for 61 at end of 10 overs.
Tamim and Sohaib Maqsood, however, fired the Zalmi to 117 and dominated the Gladiators' bowling attack.
