In the post-match interview of Azam Khan after the Islamabad United and Quetta Gladiators match Hassan Ali came in between. Islamabad United pulled off a dominating 63-run win owing to a fiery knock of Azam Khan, who scored 97 runs. In the 13th game of PSL 8 Azam Khan starred as he smashed the Quetta bowlers all over the park in his flamboyant 97 runs innings.
After winning the toss Islamabad United chose to bat first on a high-scoring pitch in Karachi. They lost the first 3 wickets in quick succession. After the powerplay, they were reeling at 39/3 with the loss of Gurbaz, Van der Dussen, and captain Shadab Khan. Azam Khan came to the rescue and took his team to a huge total of 220/6 after the end of 20 overs.
Azam Khan amassed 97 off 42 including 8 sixes and 9 boundaries. Asif Ali joined him and added 79 runs for the 4th wicket with home scoring 42 runs off 24 deliveries. Then the United bowlers did the light work of defending a humongous total of 220 runs on a very decent wicket for bowling. Quetta Gladiators never looked in the chase as they kept losing wickets frequently.

Farooqi and Hasan Ali bagged 3 wickets each. The combined bowling effort of Islamabad bowlers bundled out Quetta batters on 157 runs. After the incredible innings of Azam Khan, he was asked for a post-match chat session with Zainab Abbas. She was asking some questions about his brutal innings but then Hasan Ali did a funny thing that scared the anchor and Azam Khan both.

Hasan Ali came out of nowhere and ran past the interviewer and Azam Khan. Zainab Abbas stepped back as she was frightened by Ali’s act and later laughed. Hasan Ali is one of the wittiest characters on the field and off the field and he is often caught doing such freaky things.

So far the season hasn’t gone the way Quetta would want. They have played 5 games till now in which they have already tasted defeat 4 games. Their come-back chances are looking very vague as the team looks less confident. Now to get confidence back in the team they need some heroic individual performance from anyone.
