    PSL week 1 roundup: Umar Akmal, Rahat Ali top the charts

    After four action-packed days of cricket and nothing but cricket, the Pakistan Super League is on a two-day break and has already given us some unforgettable performances and hilarious moments to cherish.

    Here are the highest run scorers from week 1 of PSL action:

    1. Umar Akmal

    The ongoing edition of PSL has seen Quetta Gladiators’ Umar Akmal rise from the ashes to make a case for his selection in the national team once again.

    The 28-year-old leads the batting charts with 119 runs from two matches at a brilliant strike rate of 152.56.

    His highest score of 75 not out came against Peshawar Zalmi on February 15, where he took just 50 balls to power his team to a six-wicket win and bag the Player of the Match award.

    2. Babar Azam

    Babar 'Bobby Prince' Azam, the number one ranked T20I batsman in the world, is the second-highest scorer with 105 runs at a strike rate of 108.24.

    He had a blistering start to his PSL 2019 campaign with 77 runs from 59 balls against Multan Sultans on February 15.

    Together with Liam Livingstone, he contributed to an opening partnership of 105 -- the highest ever for Karachi Kings.

    3. Shane Watson

    Shane Watson is number three on the batting charts with 100 runs at a formidable strike rate of 142.85

    His blitzkrieg 81 runs from 55 balls propelled Quetta Gladiators to a seven-wicket win over Islamabad United on February 17.

    And these are the leading wicket-takers from week 1:

    1. Rahat Ali
    [​IMG]

    Lahore Qalandars' pick Rahat Ali is a quiet and unassuming fellow, but he is also the top wicket-taker with eight wickets from three matches to his name so far, at an economy of 5.79.

    His 4 for 29 against Islamabad United in the PSL opener went in vain, but his remarkable consistency turned heads when he bagged 3 for 19 against Karachi Kings and took 1 for 9 against Peshawar Zalmi.

    2. Wahab Riaz
    [​IMG]

    PSL's most successful bowler is back, without a moustache but with an imaginary sword. He is the second highest wicket-taker with five wickets from two matches at an economy of 4.88.

    Wahab Riaz took 3 for 17 for Peshawar Zalmi against Lahore Qalandars in the February 17 fixture.

    3. Hasan Ali

    Hasan Ali dismantled Lahore Qalandars' batting with 4 for 15 to become the next best bowler with a total of five wickets at an economy of 5.62.

    Quetta definitely looks like the team to beat. Teams with 2 losses in the first 3 really have to turn things around quickly.

    Half the PSL is over.

    Now over to Dubai for 7 matches, 4 matches in Abu Dhabi, then 4 matches in Pakistan before the 4 playoff matches in Pakistan.

    Multan will have to go on a hot streak now to have any chance. It's a good thing Karachi won because it keeps it more interesting.

    Sarfraz Ahmed shines as Kamran Akmal struggles: PSL 2019 halfway report

    The HBL Pakistan Super League has reached the halfway stage, with Quetta Gladiators in pole position in the pursuit of the playoff places.

    The top four sides will advance to the knockout stage of the competition, which will be played in Lahore and Karachi. Which players need to up their game if they are going to help their sides make it?

    1. Quetta Gladiators
    Top of the class: Sarfraz Ahmed

    The batting average of the captain of the league leaders has soared to 104. He provided one of the competition’s lasting memories, too, when he hit the last ball of the match against Lahore in Sharjah for six – albeit with a big slice of fortune when he somehow survived being given out twice off the first ball he faced.

    Must do better: Ghulam Mudassar

    The 19-year-old left-arm quick has been an ever-present in the side as the mandatory emerging player pick in the XI. But his returns have been mixed at best, with an unenviable economy rate of 9.1 runs per over so far.

    2. Peshawar Zalmi
    Top of the class: Hasan Ali

    The most wickets yet managed by a bowler in a single PSL season were the matching hauls of 18 by Faheem Ashraf and Wahab Riaz last time out. Hasan will obliterate that record if he carries on at his current rate. He has 15 in five matches, including three four-wicket hauls, and has been the standout player in the tournament to date.

    Must do better: Kamran Akmal

    He started the season as the leading run-getter in the PSL’s three-year history, with a haul of 929. It is a marker of his struggles this time around that, five matches in to the new campaign, he has still yet to breach the 1,000-run barrier. “He is a very, very good player, and he will come good,” teammate Liam Dawson said.

    3. Islamabad United
    Top of the class: Faheem Ashraf

    Even during the brief lean run the holders suffered, no-one carried the fight to the opposition more than paceman Ashraf. He has seven wickets, and the best economy rate among Islamabad’s bowlers, too.

    Must do better: Mohammed Sami

    Dean Jones, the coach, was quick to defend the new captain against brickbats. The fact he has been pressed to do so suggests the quick bowler could do more himself to keep the critics at bay. Taking a hat-trick, as he did in the win against Peshawar, was a good way to start.

    4. Lahore Qalandars
    Top of the class: Haris Rauf

    Arrived with a reputation based on little more than hot air – but has proven the hype to be perfectly justified with a string of eye-catching displays. None more so than when he won the game against Karachi with four wickets and some high-quality pace bowling at the death.

    Must do better: The medical department

    More a case of hoping they get a little luck, rather than a criticism of their injury-prevention team, per se. Last year they lost Chris Lynn on the eve of the competition. This time around, new captain Mohammed Hafeez was showing signs of shaping the side together when he succumbed to a thumb injury. Now they are sweating on a back injury to AB de Villiers.

    5. Karachi Kings
    Top of the class: Colin Ingram

    Even-mannered off the field and consistent on it, the South African is often viewed as a safe pair of hands by recruiters on the global T20 circuit. He has shown here that he can do a good line in spectacular, too, by notching the highest ever PSL score, 127 not out in 59 balls, to shock Quetta in Sharjah.

    Must do better: Aaron Summers

    Based only on his absence sheet, which is hardly his fault. The Australian rookie has yet to play. Which means we have been awaiting with eager anticipation a first glimpse of a fast bowler who could rank among the fastest anywhere.

    6. Multan Sultans
    Top of the class: Shoaib Malik

    The PSL has not always brought out the best in Shoaib Malik’s captaincy. He was enlisted for the role at Karachi Kings in the first season, but did not even last till the end of the league phase as he resigned. Multan might be struggling now, but their leader could hardly have done much more. He has the most runs and the best average of any of their batsmen.

    Must do better: Hammad Azam

    The 27-year-old batsman, who has a handful of international caps for Pakistan, might be struggling to force his way back into the XI, so meagre has his form been with the bat. Just 28 runs, an average of 9.33, and a duck last time out, could me a spell on the sidelines.

    A lot of things to find fault with that in the article, but how is Sarfraz & not Umar Akmal on top of the class for QG ?

    PSL 2019: Hasan Ali, Haris Rauf among the top five Pakistan performers from UAE leg

    The UAE leg of the 2019 Pakistan Super League (PSL) has drawn to a close after three weeks of high octane T20 action in the Gulf nation.


    Plenty of batsmen including AB de Villiers have entertained with some sparkling cameos while the bowling has once again been of the highest quality.

    As the PSL action gets ready to move to Karachi, we take a look at the top five Pakistan performers from recent weeks.

    HARIS RAUF (LAHORE QALANDARS)

    Matches – 8

    Wickets – 11

    The pacer was earmarked as one to watch before the start of the tournament but even he in his wildest dreams would not have imagined the kind of impact he has been able to create for the Lahore Qalandars.

    Having come through the franchise’s development programme after being scouted through a talent hunt, Rauf has turned heads with his searing pace and wicket-taking abilities in his maiden campaign.

    The right-armed pacer has picked up 11 wickets in eight matches at an average of 18 and an economy-rate below seven. His standout display came against Karachi Kings where his 4-23 helped Lahore defend a score of 138.

    With speeds consistently above 145kmph, Rauf is certainly carving a name for himself and should be bound for greater things in the future.

    SOHAIL TANVIR (QUETTA GLADIATORS)

    Matches – 9

    Wickets – 14

    It is Quetta Gladiators who have emerged as the team to beat in the 2019 PSL with Sarfraz Ahmed and his men becoming the first side to book their place in the play-offs.

    It has been Sohail Tanvir who has been leading Quetta’s charge with the veteran pacer turning back the clock with a highly consistent campaign.

    The 34-year-old’s 14 wickets have come at an average of just 15.64 and an economy-rate of only 6.25. Tanvir was way below his best in 2018 when he picked up just seven wickets in 10 matches but has been near unstoppable this campaign where he is second only to Hasan Ali with the ball.

    The former Pakistan international’s best display so far came against Islamabad United where his 4-21 paved the way for a seven-wicket Quetta win.

    FAHEEM ASHRAF (ISLAMABAD UNITED)

    Matches – 9

    Wickets – 13

    It has been a mixed campaign so far for defending champions Islamabad United but Faheem Ashraf has been a bright spark. The Pakistan all-rounder has in fact been the best bowler for the side and has outperformed his international team-mate Shadab Khan.

    Faheem’s 13 wickets so far have come at an average of 18 and a strike-rate just under 15. He has been the match winner for his side on two separate occasions with excellent displays against Lahore Qalandars and Karachi Kings.

    With the bat, the all-rounder has mustered just 81 runs so far but that has largely to do with him coming much lower down the order than expected. His improved bowling contributions will delight the Pakistan management ahead of the World Cup and he remains key to Islamabad’s hopes in the remaining matches.

    SHOAIB MALIK (MULTAN SULTANS)

    Matches – 9

    Runs – 266

    Multan Sultans have suffered the ignominy of being the first team to be eliminated from play-off contention but take nothing away from skipper Shoaib Malik. The veteran batsman is the leading run-scorer in the tournament when it comes to Pakistan players with 266 runs to his name.

    Malik is averaging over 44 with a strike-rate of 116 and has struck as many as nine sixes overall.

    The experienced campaigner has been a cut above his fellow countrymen with the bat and continues to show why he is so highly regarded in the limited-overs formats.

    The 37-year-old has led from the front for his franchise. Sadly, the rest of Multan’s batsmen have failed to take his cue.

    HASAN ALI (PESHAWAR ZALMI)

    Matches – 9

    Wickets – 18

    In a tournament where bowlers have dominated so far, none have been able to come close to the consistency shown by Hasan Ali. The Peshawar Zalmi pacer is leading the wicket-taking column by some distance and is averaging exactly two wickets per match.

    The Pakistan international’s 18 wickets have come at an astonishing strike-rate of less than 12 and an economy-rate of just over six. Ali’s prolific campaign has been the cornerstone of Peshawar’s march up the table with the franchise banking on their bowling strength.

    The 24-year-old has already picked up four-wicket hauls twice in the campaign so far and looks set to finish the season as the highest wicket-taker.

    It was the PSL where the pacer announced himself as a future Pakistan international and he is taking his displays to another level in the 2019 edition.
