As Quetta Gladiators and Peshawar Zalmi squared up against one another in Match 9 of the Pakistan Super League 2023, it proved to be an exciting contest.

Quetta Gladiators vs Peshawar Zalmi Match 9 Highlights

After winning the toss, Zalmi captain Babar Azam requested that the Gladiators bat first.

The Gladiators didn't have a fantastic start as openers Martin Guptill and Jason Roy added only 28 runs in the Powerplay. James Neesham, an ex-teammate of Guptill's from New Zealand, dismissed him for 12 off of 16. In the very next over, Roy's battle came to an end as well, falling to Usman Qadir after making 14 out of 23. The Gladiators were in serious difficulty after losing Mohammad Nawaz quickly and falling behind by 37/3 at one point.

Sarfaraz Khan, the captain, stepped in to save his team when he noticed that his side was in a mess. He and Iftikhar Ahmed shared a fourth-wicket partnership of 74 runs off 50 balls. After scoring 39 off of 30 and leaving his team on 111/4, Sarfaraz was removed by Arshad Iqbal.

From that point on, Iftikhar (50 off 34) and Odean Smith (25 off 12) gave their team a great finish by scoring 43 runs in just 19 balls collectively. With their allotted 20 overs, the Gladiators managed to achieve a valiant total of 154/4 thanks to their effort. The bowler of choice for Zalmi was Usman Qadir, who finished with 2/26 in four overs.

In response, Zalmi opened fire and appeared ready to launch an attack straight now. Despite losing wickets frequently, they kept scoring at a tremendous rate in their chase. As they were 67/4 in the eighth over and lost the important wicket of Babar Azam, they were still making great runs from the entering hitters. James Neesham and Rovman Powell added 46 runs for the fifth wicket in 30 balls. After making 36 off 23 balls, Powell was removed by Naseem Shah.

Neesham maintained his innings when Powell was dismissed, eventually scoring 38 off 23 balls while slamming four fours and two sixes. But in the fifteenth over, Qais Ahmed ordered him back. After being dismissed, Dasun Shanaka and Wahab Riaz batted shrewdly to get their team home with nine balls remaining (unbeaten 16 off 16 and unbeaten 10 off 12 respectively). The Gladiators' Mohammad Hasnain produced a remarkable spell of 3/13 in four overs.
