Despite losing Shan Masood early in the chase of a 111-run target, Sultans’ captain Mohammad Rizwan and Rossouw thwarted the Gladiators’ bowlers. Rizwan scored an unbeaten 28 off 34 balls with two fours, while Rossouw, directed by Rizwan, played a dazzling inning, smashing three sixes and nine fours to score an unbeaten 78 off 42 balls in his natural style.
The duo’s partnership led the Sultans to an easy victory in the 14th over, with the team reaching 111-1.
The Gladiators struggled to take wickets, with Nuwan Thushara (1-21) being the only bowler to take a wicket, while the rest, including Naseem Shah (0-6), Mohammad Hasnain (0-29), Mohammad Hafeez (0-15), Mohammad Nawaz (0-28), and Iftikhar Ahmed (0-10), failed to take any wickets.
The Sultans’ decision to bowl first proved to be successful, as the Gladiators’ batters struggled and were dismissed for 110. Although Jason Roy showed promise, scoring 27 off 18 balls with three boundaries and a six, his teammates fell quickly. Tail-ender Mohammad Hasnain contributed 22 off 20 balls with two boundaries and a six, while Mohammad Hafeez scored 18 off 15 balls with one boundary and one six. Mohammad Nawaz and Umar Akmal scored 14 (off 18 balls) and 11 (off 17 balls), respectively, but their efforts were not enough to build a substantial score.
Sameen Gul dismissed Martin Guptill on 7 runs off 6 balls, while Abbas Afridi got Abdul Bangalzai out on just 6 runs off 1 ball. The Gladiators’ skipper, Sarfaraz Ahmed, was bowled by Ihsanullah after scoring 2 runs off 7 balls.
The Sultans’ bowling attack, led by Ihsanullah’s impressive performance of 5-12, did not allow the Gladiators’ batters any room and picked up five wickets. Ihsanullah also had a good economy rate of 3.00. Sameen Gul (2-20), Abbas Afridi (2-27), and Usama Mir (1-19) also supported Ihsanullah well in the bowling attack.
