Karachi Kings registered their second consecutive victory as they beat Peshawar Zalmi by five wickets in the seventh match of the Pakistan Super League (PSL) in Dubai on Sunday.

After deciding to bat first, after a flying start, Zalmi kept losing wickets at regular intervals and only managed to score 131 for the loss of nine wickets in their allotted 20 overs.

The star of the show was West Indian all-rounder Dwayne Smith, who scored an unbeaten 71 off 51 with the help of four fours and five sixes.

For Kings, left-arm pacer Muhammad Amir and veteran leg-spinner Shahid Afridi claimed two wickets each.

In reply, Kings couldn’t get going as well and kept losing wickets at regular intervals, but eventually get over the line with two balls to spare.

Confidence high after incredible start to PSL, says Nawaz


Opener Joe Denly was the most successful batsman for the Kings, as he finished the innings with the top score of 29 off 39 balls with the help of four fours.

For Zalmi, pacer Chris Jordan and young leg-spinner Ibtisam Sheikh claimed two wickets each.
