PSL 2023 day 23: Roy runs rampant to win epic for Quetta Gladiators

  • Roy's masterclass helps Quetta chase down the highest total in PSL history
Published March 8, 2023

Jason Roy's batting masterclass helped Quetta Gladiators edge past Peshawar Zalmi in a must win-game of the Pakistan Super League season eight (PSL 8) on Wednesday.

Roy smashed 63-ball 145* to hunt down the 241-run target - the highest in the PSL - in just 18.2 overs.

Batting first, Peshawar Zalmi posted their highest PSL total on the back of Babar Azam's brilliant century, complemented by young opener Saim Ayub's magical innings. The couple put together a 162-run partnership for the opening wicket, the second-highest in the PSL. While Saim got out for his 74, Babar went on to score a hundred (115) - his first in the PSL. Some onslaught by Rovman Powell (35) later on powered Peshawar to 240/2 in their 20 overs.

From their performances so far, no one would have believed that Quetta would chase down the total - that too with 10 balls and eight wickets to spare. But, they did - thanks to Jason Roy's special innings. Roy's unbeaten 145, followed by Mohammad Hafeez's 18-ball 41, and Martin Guptill's 26 off 8 balls, made it possible. They will face Multan Sultans in a must-win game on March 11.
