Ronchi powers Islamabad United to Pakistan Super League trophy

Big-time cricket returns to Karachi for first time in nine years

Pakistan Super League 2018 waved the Pakistan with full swing through wonderful matches held between different teams.

Islamabad United will take on Peshawar Zalmi in the final of the 3rd season of Pakistan Super League at National Stadium in Karachi on Sunday.

The size of the stadium was extended for 1987's World Cup when three global matches were played.

"And this stadium has also hosted many world cup matches".

But little-known Asif Ali (26) smacked three successive sixes off Hasan Ali, and then Faheem Ashraf (6) raised the victory with a six off Wahab Riaz.

In bilateral battles, Islamabad United also have a slight edge over Peshawar Zalmi as out of 7 encounters between them, the former won 4 matches and suffered defeat in 3. Wahab Riaz's fantastic performance in death overs was a treat to watch for Zalmi fans as he scored 28 runs off 14 deliveries. Spinners Shadab Khan took three and Samit Patel chipped in with two wickets.

National Stadium Karachi hosted many worldwide matches.

Earlier in a statement, Prime Minister Shahid Khaqan Abbasi said the revival of sports activities, growth of economy and restoration of peace were an evidence of the government's performance.

The first one-day global was held between Pakistan and West Indies on November 21, 1980.

Waqar Younis said that Karachi is cricket loving city and it is a very important moment for Pakistan especially Karachi that worldwide players arrived in the country.

To a query as to which team she is supporting, she said that all of them are here to support return of cricket in Karachi. "It's great that West Indies are coming here and that was important and I look forward to more teams coming and more grounds hosting matches in Pakistan".

Fans weathered suffocating security arrangements, with 8,000 policemen and paramilitary staff guarding the venue and the various check posts in and around the stadium.

The success of the Lahore events have long spurred calls for similar efforts in Karachi. "In fact, this is hurting Pakistan as it is sending a negative signal and affects our country's image as well".
