Playing his first game in the ongoing season of the Pakistan Super League (PSL), West Indian dashing batsman Andrew Fletcher hits the largest six ever hit by any batsman in the tournament.
In the second over of the Peshawar innings, Fletcher faced pacer Mohammed Irfan with his front leg already half cleared. As Irfan pitched it on a length, it was in the slot for the Caribbean, who got what was left of the front leg out of the way, and swung towards cow corner. It was the cleanest contact you could hope for, the ball flew away at pace, and soared into the third tier of the stands. It smashed the record for the biggest six of the tournament, registering at a seemingly insurmountable 114m, making Joe Denly’s 104m hit a few days ago appearing rather pocket-sized. Although Fletcher hit a monster six, he could not play a long innings as he went back to the pavilion after scoring only 11 off 6 balls.
Meanwhile, Fletcher’s side Peshawar Zalmi lost the match by 19 runs to Multan Sultans. Maqsood’s unbeaten 85 off 42 blasted Multan Sultans to their second victory in as many matches over defending champions Peshawar Zalmi.
Score Summary :
Multan Sultans 183 for 3 (Maqsood 85*, Shehzad 37)
Peshawar Zalmi 164 for 8 (Hafeez 56, Dawson 32, Tanvir 3-14, Pollard 3-37)
