Ball-Boy Stuns with Spectacular Catch in Pakistan Super League

In a thrilling moment during the Pakistan Super League (PSL) match between Islamabad United and Peshawar Zalmi, a young ball-boy stole the show with an extraordinary catch beyond the boundary rope.

Despite the batter earning six runs for clearing the rope, it was the ball-boy’s diving catch that captivated the crowd and earned praise from Kiwi star Colin Munro. Munro, positioned near the boundary where the catch was taken, was astonished by the child’s effort and embraced him in a warm hug.

The incident occurred during a delivery from Islamabad pacer Faheem Ashraf, which Zalmi’s Amer Jamal hit for a maximum. Earlier in the match, the same ball-boy had dropped a catch, but he redeemed himself with this spectacular effort.

The ball marginally crossed the rope, but the sight of a fielder celebrating a six while sharing a light-hearted moment with the ball-boy created a memorable moment.

Islamabad United emerged victorious in the match, restricting Peshawar Zalmi to 167/9 after scoring 196/4 themselves. Shadab Khan was named the player of the match.

In his post-match comments, Shadab Khan praised the team’s performance and highlighted the importance of momentum on the Rawalpindi pitch. He also expressed confidence in the team’s pace attack and the development of young players like Hunain.

The ball-boy’s catch not only showcased his athleticism but also highlighted the spirit of sportsmanship and the camaraderie between players and support staff. It was a moment that will be remembered long after the match itself.

Sohail Khan's Moment of Madness Costs Quetta Gladiators

Sohail Khan’s Moment of Madness Costs Quetta Gladiators

Quetta Gladiators’ pacer Sohail Khan endured a disastrous outing in his side’s Pakistan Super League (PSL) clash against Karachi Kings on Thursday. Khan’s forgettable performance was marred by a moment of frustration that resulted in an overthrow and extra runs for the opposition.

In his opening over, Khan was punished for two boundaries. His second over proved even more costly, as he conceded a six and a four off consecutive deliveries. However, it was on the final ball of his second over that Khan’s frustration boiled over. Visibly agitated, he hurled the ball back at batter Tim Seifert.

Khan’s reckless act resulted in four extra runs for Karachi Kings, as the ball sailed over Seifert and the wicketkeeper’s head. The incident left Khan visibly distraught, with the pacer covering his face in disbelief.

“This is almost typical Sohail Khan,” remarked former Pakistan cricketer Bazid Khan on-air. “All throughout his career, he has a short fuse. And he’s been pumped down the ground, well… he’s made sure he conceded another boundary.”

Khan’s struggles continued in his second spell, as he finished with figures of 0/36. Karachi Kings went on to post a competitive total of 165/8 in 20 overs.

Despite Khan’s poor performance, Quetta Gladiators managed to chase down the target off the last ball. Jason Roy and Sherfane Rutherford played key roles with half-centuries, while Saud Shakeel and Akeal Hosein made vital contributions.

The victory propelled Quetta Gladiators to second place in the PSL standings, just two points behind leaders Multan Sultans.
