PSL 2023: The new Sultan of T-20 cricket created a record, narrowly saved RCB’s record

New Delhi: It cannot be said when what will happen in cricket. T20 cricket is the hallmark of the fastest record collapse. The fun of this quick cricket format is that here explosive batting and wreaking havoc bowling breaks many records within a few days. Something similar has been seen in the Pakistan Super League (PSL). Just a day after watching Riley Rossouw storm on Friday, the world witnessed another feat on Saturday.

Opening the match between Multan Sultans and Quetta Gladiators, Usman Khawaja stunned with an explosive innings. Usman hit 120 runs in 43 balls hitting 12 fours and 9 sixes. He made the record for the fastest century by hitting a century in just 36 balls. Usman’s batting from one end and captain Mohammad Rizwan’s storm from the other side… It rained a lot of runs in this match. With the help of Rizwan’s 55 in 29 balls, Riley Rossouw’s 15, Tim David’s 43 in 25 balls and Kieron Pollard’s 23 in 14 balls, Multan Sultans scored 262 runs losing 3 wickets in 20 overs. With this, the team not only made the record for the highest score in PSL but also left many teams behind.

Became the ninth highest scoring team in T20 cricket

With this, Multan Sultans became the ninth highest scorer in the world in T20 cricket. In this case, the Sultans surpassed the record of 262 runs scored by the North West team during the Africa T20 Cup, losing 4 wickets. Sultans achieved this position by losing just 3 wickets.

This is how RCB’s record would have been broken

In this case, he beat the record of 261 runs by Birmingham Bears in Vitality Blast and Sri Lanka’s record of 260 runs against Kenya. The special thing is that if Multan Sultans had scored 2 more runs, RCB’s record in IPL would have been broken. In 2013, RCB scored 263 runs losing 5 wickets against Pune Warriors. In this match, Chris Gayle played an unbeaten inning of 175 runs in 66 balls. This record in PSL was in the name of Islamabad United. United had scored 247 runs losing 2 wickets against Peshawar Zalmi on 17 June 2021. The record for the highest runs in T20 cricket is in the name of Afghanistan, who scored 278 runs against Ireland in Dehradun by losing 3 wickets. Till date no team has been able to break this record.

Kais Ahmed looted 77 runs

Afghanistan and Quetta Gladiators bowler Qais Ahmed proved to be very expensive in this match. He looted 77 runs in 4 overs, but also took 2 wickets. Captain Mohammad Nawaz gave 50 runs in 4 overs with one wicket, Naveen ul Haq 41 runs in 4 overs, Amaal Khan 37 runs in 3 overs, Umaid Asif 49 runs in 4 overs and Mohammad Hafeez gave 8 runs in one over.
