Peshawar Zalmi fast bowler Wahab Riaz gave a send-off to Quetta Gladiators captain Sarfraz Ahmed. Riaz was able to get the better of Sarfraz when the right-hander went for the drive. However, the wicketkeeper-batsman could not keep the ball down as Zalmi’s skipper Darren Sammy took a good catch at mid-wicket.

Subsequently, Wahab Riaz gave a send-off to Sarfraz Ahmed. In fact, Riaz was the pick of the Peshawar Zalmi’s bowler as he took two wickets. Furthermore, the southpaw pacer gave away only 18 runs in his four overs quota.
