Shadab Khan Leads Elite PSL All-Rounders Club

Islamabad United’s standout performer, Shadab Khan, has entered the exclusive realm of all-rounders who have notched 50+ runs and taken over 2 wickets in a single Pakistan Super League (PSL) match. Following his remarkable display against Peshawar Zalmi at Rawalpindi Cricket Stadium last night, the 25-year-old has achieved this milestone three times in a single PSL game, a record unparalleled in the competition’s history. In the latest match, Shadab scored an impressive 80 runs and claimed 3 wickets, earning him the well-deserved title of the man of the match.

Ravi Bopara, the English all-rounder, stands as the only other player besides Shadab Khan to have achieved this feat more than once, accomplishing it twice. However, Shadab’s three instances set him apart as the top performer in this category.

With Islamabad United having won three matches and lost three in their opening seven games, the team is currently positioned well for a playoff berth, having only three matches left in the regular season. Following the resounding victory against Zalmi, Islamabad United holds the 3rd spot in the table with 7 points. Moreover, they boast a superior run-rate compared to Quetta Gladiators, who are in 2nd place with an additional game to play.

This impressive feat by Shadab Khan not only solidifies his individual prowess but also contributes significantly to Islamabad United’s overall standing in the PSL, enhancing their chances for a successful playoff campaign.
