Peshawar Zalmi vs Karachi Kings PSL Highlights Today – 3 March 2017
Watch Peshawar vs Karachi highlights. PZ vs KK highlights. Highlights of the 3rd Qualifying Final played between Karachi Kings and Peshawar Zalmi today on 3-3-2017. Peshawar badly marred a hard-earned opportunity to reach finals of Pakistan Super League 2nd Edition in previous match against Quetta Gladiators and now they have to play against Karachi Kings, a recently reawakened team that seems almost invincible. This has become a key feature of Peshawar Zalmi to crumble in high pressure situations. They lost that game with only 1 runs, which became elusive for their batsmen in the last over. They lost three consecutive wickets in a stupid effort to get two runs which weren’t so difficult to achieve.
Toss: Karachi Kings won the toss and elected to field.
On the Contrary, Karachi Kings have shown an amazing ability to rise from their ashes. A team that, during the first a few matches, lost track and faced a series of horrible defeats, suddenly fine tuned themselves and like a road-roller, crushed all opposition to reach at this stage. Karachi’s performance against the defending champions, Islamabad United was a treat to watch. While defending a very small total of 126 runs, their spirited performance restricted the opposition to just 82. In the end, Islamabad lost all their wickets in 15.2 overs.
This is what the skippers of both the teams said after their last matches.
“We did everything we could. But when you get so close that you’d have won, it’s difficult. (It) was a great game of cricket. We will look to get one step further in the next game,” Sammy had said after the one-run defeat in the first qualifying final.
“The tone was set in the first few overs and then Imad [Wasim] and Usama [Mir] were brilliant. We had to bowl straight with slight variations. Imad bowled marvellously and so did Usama,” Kumar Sangakkara, the Kings’ skipper, noted after securing a place in the third qualifier.
