Quetta’s Naseem Shah fined after Multan clash

Quetta Gladiators’ Naseem Shah has been fined for wearing the wrong helmet during his side’s clash with Multan Sultans in the third match of the Pakistan Super League (PSL) at the Multan Cricket Stadium on Wednesday.

The Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) has fined Naseem ten percent of the match fee for wearing the wrong helmet in his side’s nine-wicket loss to the home side.

The right-arm pacer has been penalised under PCB’s Code of Conduct.

Naseem, who was bowled by the star of the match Ihsanullah, wore Bangladesh Premier League (BPL) franchise Comilla Victorians’ helmet.

It must be noted that the 20-year-old pacer had represented the side in the BPL 2023 before the PSL 8.

Put to bat first, the Gladiators were bowled out for a paltry 110 runs before the home side chased down the target in 13.3 overs, thanks to Ihsanullah’s five-wicket haul and a brilliant knock of 78 runs from Rilee Rossouw.

Impressive Rossouw brought up his eighth PSL fifty off 33 balls to help Sultans finish off the job with the bat. He scored 78 not-out off just 42 balls laced with nine boundaries and three maximums. However, the day belonged to Ihsanullah as the 20-year-old bowler took five wickets to help Sultans bowl out Gladiators for 110. Ihsanullah shined brightly with his speedy deliveries and bagged back-to-back wickets to dominate in just his second match of his debut PSL season. He claimed five wickets and conceded just 12 runs in his four overs.
