Karachi Kings’ leg-spinner Zahid Mahmood expressed his hope to defeat Peshawar Zalmi in their final group stage match of HBL PSL 9.

Mahmood, during the post-match press conference, after Karachi Kings’ thrilling three-wicket victory over Lahore Qalandars opened up about his plans for the match against Peshawar Zalmi.

“We plan according to every match and opposition. I try to bowl according to the plan and the role given to me by team management,” said Mahmood.

“We will carry the momentum from today’s victory and will defeat Peshawar Zalmi in the next match,” he added.

Karachi Kings’ batters Shoaib Malik and Muhammad Irfan Khan displayed nerves of steel and guided the Kings to an enthralling victory over arch-rivals Lahore Qalandars.

The victory kept Karachi Kings in contention to make it to the playoffs as they moved just one point shy of Quetta Gladiators and Islamabad United, sitting in fourth and third place respectively.

Chasing 178 on a tricky National Bank Stadium surface, the home side knocked the winning runs when Shoaib Malik slashed Zaman Khan for a boundary on the final delivery.

Talking about the match, Zahid Mahmood shared that although his team won, they will learn from their mistakes to perform better in the next game.

“We started well today but made some mistakes in the middle, resulting in the match going to the last over,” said the right-arm bowler. “But we will try not to repeat those mistakes in the next match.”
