Pakistan’s all-rounder Shahid Afridi has lauded Multan Sultans, the franchise of Pakistan Super League (PSL) 2021, over their eight-wicket win against Peshawar Zalmi last night.
Shahid Afridi, who was ruled out of the ongoing PSL 2021 tournament due to a back injury, in his tweet wrote, “Brilliant all-round performance by my Multan Sultans last night! Rizwan’s been an absolute superstar for MS and Pakistan both, long may it continue. Outstanding performances by Dahani and Sohaib Maqsood. Keep the fight going, boys.”

Zalmi had a moment of fresh air when Mohammad Irfan removed Shan Masood (14) but it didn’t last for too long.
Rizwan was joined by Maqsood who started cautiously but after getting set, he didn’t stop. The duo added 116 runs for the second wicket.
Captain fantastic @iMRizwanPak played another fabulous knock 🙌🏽👏🏻
