Dilbar Hussain missed the match following his hamstring injury. It could have been a serious blow for Qalandars but they entrusted Salman Mirza as Hussain’s replacement.
Twitter speaks in his tribute as he grabbed two wickets playing his first-ever cricket match. Directly stepping into the biggest match, the PSL match, makes his two wickets even special that rendered later for the team’s victory over Zalmi.
The bowler conceded 35 runs in 3.00 overs inspiring the masses to play his first game. It was not expected earlier that he will be playing but Dilbar’s injury acknowledged him into it.
A dedication for Salman Mirza on Qalandar’s victory
Salman targetted Zalmi’s top two performers those if stayed, could have given serious blows to Qalandars. Picking Kamran Akmal and Haider Ali, the bowler is getting tributes from everywhere.
However, it is not speculated on Dilbar’s injury scans and the health management will be notifying the media soon.
It has happened for the first time in PSL history that Qalandars have won their opening match. The side is known to look mediocre throughout the season but, however, managed to reach finals for the first time last season where they were beaten by Kings.
