A scintillating 29-ball 52 from Hussain Talat and a grand finish by stand-by captain Shoaib Malik (48* off 32) helped Peshawar Zalmi gun down 191 with two deliveries to spare and beat Quetta Gladiators by five wickets to get their season off to a winning start. Malik, standing in for Wahab Riaz who tested positive for Covid, smashed two sixes and a four off James Faulkner in the 19th over, opening up the game to such an extent that even Sherfane Rutherford's wicket in the final over hardly made a difference.
