Sultans missed the length against Zalmi, says Misbah

By our correspondent
LAHORE: Former Pakistan’s captain Misbah-ul-Haq has said that Multan Sultans missed the length in bowling which costed them in the end against Peshawar Zalmi.
“The way Multan won matches I think they are famous for clinical performances. The way they played first three games it was wonderful to see their bowling discipline but today they missed the length,” Misbah said
“Mohammad Ali bowled short of length in his first over. Abbas also was seen struggling, “ Misbah pointed out.
Multan Sultans on Friday night tasted their first defeat from four games when they were beaten by Babar Azam’s Peshawar Zalmi by just five runs at the jam-packed Multan Cricket Stadium.
Set to score 180 Multan required 22 off the last over from Afghan pacer Naveen-ul-Haq.
Iftikhar Ahmed, who had finished well against Lahore Qalandars at the same venue the other day, hit Naveen for two fours and a six and now Multan needed six off the last two deliveries. Naveen removed both Iftikhar and Shahnawaz Dahani off his last two balls to seal a hard-earned and much-needed win for Zalmi.
