Ian Bell Fifty, Sami hat-trick clinches win for Islamabad
What a finish to this double header. Ian Bell’s fifty got Islamabad United a score, but Pollard’s own half century made it seem as if they hadn’t got nearly enough. But the quicks who started so well also finished things off superbly, with young Musa picking up three wickets – including one with his final ball – before Sami ended the show with a hat-trick. He has one in ODIs, and one in Tests, and now he’s got one in the PSL too. And on that breathless note, I’ll call time on tonight’s coverage.
