The third season of the Pakistan Super League (PSL) is all set to commence in some days. For the first time in the history of the PSL, an additional team has been added to the original fixtures comprising of five teams.

The new franchise in the league is Multan Sultans. In what must have been a strategy for the players to gel-up with their new teammates and the staff, the franchise played a 10-overs a side friendly match. Wasim Akram, who is mentoring the team, also participated in the match.

The friendly match was between Wasim Akram Sultan XI and Shoaib Malik Tufan XI. In the match, the Wasim Akram-led side registered a 7-wicket victory. Malik’s side batted first in the match and posted a decent total of 73/6 in their stipulated 10 overs.

The highlight of the match was Wasim Akram bowling on the cricket field. Akram returned to his knack of picking up wickets as he dismissed the opposition captain in Malik. The way he bagged the wicket was a strange one.

Akram bowled a short and wide delivery which Malik tried to cut but didn’t succeed in. Initially, the umpire signalled the delivery as a wide ball, but, just when he saw Akram appealing, he changed his mind and ruled the batsman out.
