Karachi Kings beat Multan Sultans by 66 runs in the PSL 2023.
Kings batted first and set a reasonable goal of 168 runs before bowling out Sultans for 101 runs in 16.3 overs. Tayyab Tahir’s half-century and great spin bowling from Tabraiz Shamsi, Shoaib Malik, and Imad Wasim helped them do this.

In response to the target, Sultans’ batters couldn’t get going because Kings’ spin bowling was so good and kept their opponents from getting comfortable.

Shan Masood, who was batting first, was out after getting 25 runs in 16 balls with the help of four fours. The batter fell to Akif Javed after an inside edge.

Rilee Rossouw, on the other hand, was taken out by a beautiful ball from spinner Shoaib Malik. The left-handed batter could only get seven runs in six balls.

The next batter to go was David Miller. His countryman Tabraiz Shamsi sent him back after he had scored seven runs.

In his third over, veteran all-arounder Malik struck again, sending Sultans’ captain Mohammad Rizwan (29) back to the pavilion. The wicketkeeper-batsman tried to play a sweep shot to the leg side, but the ball hit the edge and Tayyab Tahir, who was making his debut, took a spectacular catch.

It was the day of the spinners for the Kings, and Shamsi did it again for his team by bowling out Khushdil Shah (4) with a great ball.

After Usama Mir had scored 10 runs, the South African spinner got rid of him. This was his third wicket.

In the next over, captain Imad Wasim joined in and got rid of Carlos Braithwaite with a ball (1).

The spinner with the left arm got rid of Akeel Hosein (2) in the same over. The left-handed batter tried to hit a home run, but Ben Cutting caught him.

Anwar Ali was the ninth batter to go down. He scored 12 runs on 12 balls. Akif got the right-handed batter out.

Malik got Abbas Afridi out LBW to end Sultans’ innings (leg between wicket).

For the Kings team, Malik and Shamsi each took three wickets, and Akif and Imad each took two.

Before that, Karachi Kings finished their 20 overs with 167-3.

At one point in the first inning, it looked like the Kings would score a huge number, but the Sultans’ bowlers played very well in the last few overs to get back into the game.

Anwar Ali sent England’s opener James Vince back to the hut after he scored 27 runs in 12 balls during a short cameo.

But Matthew Wade and Tayyab Tahir put together 109 runs in 83 balls to make an impressive hundred for the second wicket.

Ihsanullah, who had taken the most wickets in the tournament, caught Tahir in front of the wickets, but not before Tahir had scored 65 runs in 46 balls. The confident right-hander hit eight fours and a six with his first ball.

Wade, who had trouble getting going and scored 46 runs in 47 balls, was caught by Ihsanullah when he tried to play a lap shot.

Imad Wasim, the captain, only had to hit six balls, but he used them all to score 14 runs with a four and a six.

Ihsanullah was the best bowler for Sultans. In four overs, he gave up 22 runs for 2 runs.

Karachi Kings: Matthew Wade (w), James Vince, Tayyab Tahir, Shoaib Malik, Imad Wasim (c), Ben Cutting, Irfan Khan, Aamer Yamin, Muhammad Musa, Tabraiz Shamsi, and Akif Javed.

Shan Masood, Mohammad Rizwan (w/c), Rilee Rossouw, David Miller, Khushdil Shah, Carlos Brathwaite, Anwar Ali, Akeal Hosein, Usama Mir, Abbas Afridi, and Ihsanullah are the Multan Sultans.
