Lahore Qalandars created history by becoming the first team to fight and win their PSL title when the competition went down with one delivery and Zaman Khan retained his composure. Yet even before the first ball was bowled, history was bound to be made as Multan captain Muhammad Rizwan and Lahore captain Shaheen Shah Afridi competed to become the first captain to win the PSL trophy twice.

It is a credit to Shaheen Shah Afridi’s leadership and personal talent as well as the Lahore thought tank that surrounds the world’s best left-arm bowler with a formidable supporting cast that he has not yet faced elimination as captain.
By the time the game was over, it seemed like ages had passed since the toss, but Afridi’s choice to bat first appeared to have been the right one after Lahore made a strong start.
Rashid’s low-pitched delivery caused the South African to chop, and the leg-celebration spinner’s of him wasn’t exactly to his taste. In the following over, Rashid pulled off the same trick once more, dismissing Rizwan for just 34 off 22 balls as David Wiese took a wise catch at long off.
After taking four wickets in two overs after being destroyed in his first two, Afridi brilliantly turned the tables on Multan’s dangerous middle order. Shaheen became the most successful skipper in the league because to Zaman’s calm handling of Abbas Afridi’s amazing 17-run cameo, which set the stage for a grand climax.
