Tamim Makes Second Successive Fifty in PSL

Tamim Iqbal, who had seemed to be struggling in the last match, played a lot smoother innings on Saturday compared to his last match. The Bangladeshi batsman played with more confidence this time around and ended up for 55 on 47 balls.

Earlier in the evening, Qalandars made a forgettable start when their star batsman Chris Gayle’s stump was cleaned up by Junaid Khan in the very first ball of the day. They lost two more wickets in quick succession and despite some little try of rebuilding the innings by their middle order followed, after 20 overs they were able to post only 117 runs on the board.

Scaling down an easy target, Zalmi opener Tamim and Mohammad Hafeez quickly made their intention clear that they were in a hurry to go home. Though Hafeez looked a bit edgy earlier in his innings and was reprieved once on 10, Tamim was in the business right from the onset.

Tamim displayed a mature show, and smashed the ball more confidently. Unlike his partner, he didn’t count on big shots only but took quick singles and translated those one and a half runs to twos, which made his innings a more pleasant one to watch altogether.

Tbe left arm opener completed his second fifty on the trot in the 15th over from just 42 balls maintaining a healthy strike rate. And the milestone became even more meaningful because it came of the bowling off Chris Gayle, who produced a juicy full toss for Tamim to help him take the single smoothly.

Tamim carried through the run chase, stayed till the end with a solid 55 to lead his team to an emphatic 9-wicket victory. Tamim’s 47-ball knock was studded with seven shots to hit the fence. He so far scored 106 runs in the competition, which makes him the second highest scorer of the PSL. He is second only to Luke Wright, who has 133 runs to his name.

Tamim scores fifty in First PSL Match

After the brilliant performance by Shakib Al Hasan in the last match, Bangladesh’s marvelous opening batsman Tamim Iqbal has scored a brilliant fifty in his debut for Peshawar Zalmi in their first match of PSL against Islamabad United, as he played a steady fifty-plus knock to lift his team to a competitive 140+ total at the Dubai International Cricket Stadium on Friday in the day’s second match.

Tamim scores fifty in First PSL Match

Though Tamim is mostly known all over the world for his hard hitting ability, the knock he played today wasn’t one of that kind His start was a bit scratchy, he edged a couple of times down the legside — fortunately not with the bat but with his feet. Overall he was struggling to match with the pace of the ball initially. He was trying hard to hit the ball hard but was failing again and again.

Despite having made a not-so-impressive start, Tamim, was at least, able to stick around, which most other Zalmi batsmen couldn’t do. And it was clear that he needed just one big shot to settle himself and get into the act. And from the moment he connected one, all of a sudden he was looking more confident than ever.

Tamim reached his fifty in the 18th over, facing 50 balls. With his team losing five wickets already, including that precious one of Shahid Afridi, more responsibility fell on the set batsman Tamim to power his team towards the end the innings. But the southpaw batsman couldn’t fulfil the spectator’s expectation. Still he was the top scorer of the innings, playing a run-a-ball 51 that included three fours and a sixer.
