quetta-vs-Islamabad-660x330

Report By Syed Mudassar ( Cheif Editor Dubai Post )

Nawaz finished with stunning figures of 4-13 off four overs to help restrict Islamabad to just 7-128 – a score that would have been worse if not for some big hitting late in the innings from captain Misbah-ul-Haq (41 off 28) and Sydney Thunder’s West Indian sensation Andre Russell (35 off 20).

However the runs were nowhere near enough to stop the Gladiators from storming to victory with eight wickets to spare.

Englishman Luke Wright, who plays for Melbourne Stars in the Big Bash League, was the standout batsman with 86 runs from just 53 balls, an innings that featured 11 fours and four sixes.

Pietersen was trapped lbw by Pakistani journeyman Imran Khalid before Nawaz returned to cap a memorable game by scoring 22 not out as Quetta cruised to victory with four overs remaining.
