PSL: Tayyab’s brilliant debut earns Karachi win over Multan | Cricket News – Times of India

NEW DELHI: Tayyab Tahir made a memorable Pakistan Super League debut as his half-century helped Karachi Kings register 66-run victory over table-toppers Multan Sultans on Sunday.
Tayyab scored 65 off 46 balls and stitched a 109-run stand with Matthew Wade (46) to propel Karachi to 167-3. Tayyab’s knock was studded with 8 fours and a six.
Chasing 168, no Multan batsmen could put up a fight as they were bowled out for 101 in 16.3 overs in their first away game after winning four out of five at home.
Shoaib Malik (3-16) and left-arm South African spinner Tabraiz Shamsi (3-18) did most of the damage to restrict Multan to a below par score.
James Vince provided Karachi with a whirlwind start by smashing two sixes and three fours in his blistering knock of 27 off 12 balls before he skied a catch to David Miller at mid-on after Multan captain Mohammad Rizwan won the toss and elected to field.
Tayyab and Wade then raised a century stand before both perished in fast bowler Ihsanullah’s return spell in the late overs.
Ihsanullah, the leading wicket-taker in the tournament, raised his tally to 14 in six games when he had Tayyab trapped leg before wicket off a delivery that slanted into the right-hander before uprooting Wade’s offstump with a pacey ball that was clocked at 151.4 kph.
Rizwan (29) and Shan Masood (25) provided Multan with a steady start of 41 off 30 balls before Karachi went for a successful television referral against Masood after he edged fast bowler Akif Javed and the umpire ruled in the batter’s favor.
Malik then had in-form Rilee Rossouw (7) clean bowled before holding onto a catch at mid on as Miller (7) tried a big hit against Shamsi.
Tayyab then grabbed a stunning flying catch at point to dismiss Rizwan, who tried to play Malik on the leg side but got a leading edge in the 11th over. Multan then lost their last seven wickets for 31 runs against some disciplined Karachi bowling.
Karachi’s win lifted the team to third in the points table with two wins from six games. Lahore Qalandars and Peshawar Zalmi, who are both behind Karachi on net run-rate, will meet in Sunday’s later game.
