PSL 2022 Finale

The Lahore Qalandars defeated the most in-form Multan Sultans in the Pakistan Super League, PSL 2022 Finale by 42 runs to lift their maiden title. The Sultans who were the team of the tournament having lost just one of their nine league matches ran out of fire and brimstone in the decider as they failed to retain their title.

 

Qalandars restricted Sultans to 138 while defending a target of 181 and claimed the first-ever HBL PSL title. As Qalandars have won the coveted HBL PSL title, each franchise has won a PSL edition now.

 

 

Match Summary

 

Opting to bat first, Lahore Qalandars piled up a massive 180/5 in their stipulated 20 overs on the back of Mohammad Hafeez’s 46-ball 69. Harry Brook (41* of 22 balls) and David Wiese (28* off 8 balls) also made significant contributions with the bat. Asif Afridi was the stand-out bowler for Multan, claiming three wickets by conceding 19 runs in his four overs.

 

In reply, Multan’s innings folded for a paltry 138 in 19.3 overs. It was a listless batting performance as no batter managed to touch the 40-run mark. Khushdil Shah was the top scorer with 23-ball 32. For Qalandars, skipper Shaheen Afridi (3-30), Hafeez (2-23), and Zaman Khan (2-26) were the wrecker-in-chief with the ball.

 

Pakistan cricket fraternity lauded Lahore Qalandars for winning their stunning display in the final to clinch the PSL 2022 trophy.
