Both teams tried their best to lose: Shadab Khan

Islamabad United captain, Shadab Khan, after winning the match against Quetta Gladiators, commented that both teams tried their best to lose the game.

While speaking during the post-match conference, Khan said, “I think both teams wanted to lose the match today.”

Islamabad United, after winning the toss, decided to bowl first. Everything was going according to their plan at the start, but the Quetta’s middle-order pair turned the table around.

Mohammad Nawaz and Najibullah Zadran scored half-centuries to register a total of 179 runs after losing six wickets.

In reply, Islamabad United batted brilliantly but were losing wickets quickly at the same time. The United Army once again sealed the game thanks to another brilliance by the pair of Azam Khan and Faheem Ashraf. 

With this victory, Islamabad United becomes the second player after Lahore Qalandars to qualify for the Pakistan Super League playoff round.
