In a pulsating encounter in PSL 9, Rassie van der Dussen’s explosive century proved insufficient as Peshawar Zalmi clinched a narrow eight-run victory over Lahore Qalandars, propelled by a collective bowling effort.

Despite van der Dussen’s valiant unbeaten century, Lahore Qalandars fell agonizingly short in their pursuit of a daunting 212-run target, denying them their first win in PSL 9.

Facing an early setback with the loss of their openers, Qalandars found hope in a resilient partnership between Shai Hope and van der Dussen, who added crucial runs to the scoreboard.

Van der Dussen’s solo effort continued as he partnered with Ahsan Bhatti, steering Qalandars towards a formidable total, but ultimately falling short despite his heroic century.

With an impressive display of power-hitting, van der Dussen amassed a remarkable 104 runs off just 52 deliveries, showcasing his prowess with seven boundaries and six sixes.

Peshawar Zalmi’s dominant batting display, spearheaded by Babar Azam and Ayub’s explosive partnership, laid the foundation for their imposing total, setting the stage for a thrilling encounter.

Despite Azam’s departure, Ayub and Powell sustained Zalmi’s momentum with aggressive strokeplay, further bolstering their total with valuable contributions from Mohammad Haris.

Lahore Qalandars’ bowling attack, led by Shaheen Shah Afridi, posed significant challenges, yet Powell’s onslaught and Zalmi’s batting depth ensured a formidable target.
