Islamabad United played against Multan Sultans on March 7 in the Pakistan Super League game at the Pindi Club Ground in Rawalpindi. However, in the match, Islamabad United captain Shadab Khan lost his calm after getting clean bowled by pacer Ihsanullah and said some cuss words which were recorded by the stump mic in PSL 2023 as well.
Meanwhile, the match was a nail-biting one and Shadab Khan couldn’t hold on to his emotion after getting bowled at a crucial time after scoring 44 runs. This happened during the 15th over of Islamabad United’s innings when pace bowler Ihsanullah bowled a quick delivery to Shadab Khan which clicked the 150 kmph mark on the speedometer. Shadab got beaten by the excess pace as he tried to drive through the cover region but could only manage an inside edge as the ball hit the stumps.

Shadab Khan, Islamabad captain said: “The way Faheem played and we know the calibre of him and he is showing it out there. Wasim and Farooqi brought the momentum back in our death overs, at one stage it looked like it will go to 230-240. Our batting is strong but our bowling is better than this to not consistently leak 200 every game. We shuffled the batting order today so that at the end of the tournament players like Faheem, Asif, Mubasir are coming in with form. If you get in on these pitches, it’s very difficult to contain.”

Mohammad Rizwan, Multan captain said: “If you look from the start, we are looking at 220 but they bowled well,we did not finish well and credit to Faheem Ashraf for his innings. The pitch is a belter and luck was with them, we did not finish well with our bowling. The difference was the 20 runs we did not get at the end while batting. The last two matches we lost, all those weaknesses were fixed today but we lost due to the finishing.”
