The T20 cricket is known for providing riveting action that includes the best moments on the field. Apart from battles, there are other defining moments that make a big impact in the game. The 16th game of the Pakistan Super League (PSL) 2022 between Peshawar Zalmi and Multan Sultans was played at Gaddafi Stadium, Lahore and Shahnawaz Dahani took a brilliant catch during the game.
In fact, it had every bit of spice and promising moments that kept the fans at the edge of their seats. Batting first, Multan Sultans posted a staggering total of 182 for the loss of 7 wickets in 20 overs. Shan Masood was the highest run-getter scored with 68 off 49 balls with the help of 8 boundaries and a six. Mohammad Rizwan and Tim David scored 34 runs each as the collective batting efforts paid rich rewards.
On the contrary, Peshawar Zalmi bowlers Saqib Mahmood, skipper Wahab Riaz, and Salman Irshad managed to scalp a couple of wickets each. The bowlers couldn’t do anything as Multan Sultans powered their way to a massive total. While it was expected that Zalmi would dictate terms, they ran through a top-order batting collapse. They lost the services of Kamran Akmal and Haider Ali in the second over itself.
After losing two quick wickets early on, Zalmi didn’t recover from the collapse as wickets kept tumbling like a pack of cards at regular intervals. Blessing Muzarabani was the pick of the bowlers for Multan Sultans. He accounted for 3 dismissals in his quota of 4 overs where he conceded 18 runs at an impressive economy rate of 4.50. On the other hand, Khushdil Shah was another bowler who did justice with the ball.
He took 3 wickets to his name in 3.3 overs. Shahnawaz Dahani took 2 wickets to his name whereas Abbas Afridi and Imran Tahir took a wicket each. Peshawar Zalmi was bowled out for 140 in 19.3 overs. The table-toppers, Multan Sultans registered their sixth straight win of this season. They won the game by 42 runs. Meanwhile, the best part of the match was witnessed during the second ball of the second over bowled by Blessing Muzarabani.

Kamran Akmal tried to smack the ball for a boundary or a six. As it turned out, he ended up miscuing the shot as he lofted the ball high up in the air. Meanwhile, there was a miscommunication between Mohammad Rizwan and Shahnawaz Dahani.
Both players had their eyes on the ball to take the catch. Shahnawaz Dahani took the catch in his safe pair of hands despite a massive collision with wicketkeeper Mohammad Rizwan.
