Tamim misfires in PSL opener

Bangladesh opener Tamim Iqbal failed to fire in the Pakistan Super League (PSL) opener for holders Peshawar Zalmi against Multan Sultans at the Dubai International Cricket Stadium yesterday.

The left-hander scored a run-a-ball 11 before being spectacularly caught at deep fine-leg while attempting a third successive boundary against left-arm quick Mohammad Irfan in the fourth over. Sent into bat, Zalmi posted 151-6 in their share of 20 overs with Mohammad Hafeez notching a 52-ball 59. The right-hander struck six fours and a six. West Indian Daren Sammy hammered an 11-ball 29 that contained three sixes and a couple of boundaries.  

Both Tamim and all-rounder Shakib Al Hasan played for Zalmi last season. But Shakib is not playing the PSL this time due to a finger injury he sustained during the tri-series ODI final against Sri Lanka. Although Sabbir Rahman joined Zalmi as Shakib's cover, the right-hander was not included in the playing eleven for the opening game. Two more Bangladesh players Mahmudullah Riyad and Mustafiur Rahman will feature for Quetta Gladiators and Lahore Qalanders respectively.
