Rashid Khan created a ruckus in PSL 2021, craved the batsmen for runs, won the lost match with the bat in the last over

The second half of the Pakistan Super League has started in a bang in the UAE. Afghanistan's Rashid Khan created a ruckus with the ball and bat, giving Lahore Qalandars a thrilling win over Islamabad United. Playing for Qalandars in the PSL that resumed three months later, Rashid Khan spent just nine runs in the first four overs and took one wicket. Then, doing wonders in batting, made the team win in the last over by blowing 15 runs in five balls. Apart from Rashid Khan for Qalandars, Australia's James Faulkner was also the hero of victory, who took three wickets.

Batting first, Islamabad United scored 143 runs for nine wickets. None of his batsmen could score more than 27 runs. All the bowlers of Qalandars got wickets but Rashid Khan was the most stingy. After this, the Qalandars were also faltering while chasing the target. In the last over, they needed 16 runs to win. Then Rashid Khan scored 15 runs and gave victory to the team on the last ball. Lahore dominated in this match. Due to the three wickets of James Faulkner, Islamabad's batting continued to yearn for runs. Then Rashid Khan's four-over spell did the work of wetting the flour in the pauper. He took the wicket of Hussain Talat in a span of four overs and conceded only nine runs. For the fifth time in T20 cricket, Rashid has given less than 10 runs in his four-over spell. In this case, there are two West Indies bowlers ahead of him. Samuel Badree has done this feat seven times and Sunil Narine 12 times.

Faheem Ashraf becomes Islamabad's helper

For Islamabad, it should be good for number eight Faheem Ashraf, who scored 27 runs in 24 balls with two fours and a six to take the team to a fighting score. Apart from them, Hasan Ali (14) and Mohammad Wasim (10) also played useful innings in the lower order. The score was not that easy on the slow pitch of Abu Dhabi. However, Fakhar Zaman and Sohail Akhtar gave a quick start to Lahore. But Islamabad's bowlers also made it difficult for Lahore's batsmen to score runs with disciplined bowling. Captain Sohail Akhtar scored 40 runs in 30 balls with five fours and a six in the top order. Then Mohammad Hafeez also scored 29 runs in 25 balls. But the pace of scoring slowed down in the middle overs. Due to this, Islamabad got the upper hand in the last overs.

Rashid Khan's three fours and Lahore champion

In the last two overs, Lahore Qalandars needed 23 runs to win. Hasan Ali did this over and gave only one run in the first five balls and took the wicket of Ben Dunk. But on the last ball, Singapore's Tim David hit a six in the last over to reduce the number of runs needed to win to 16. Hussain Talat came to bowl the last over. The funny thing was that before this over, Talat had not bowled in the entire match. The batsman in front was Rashid Khan. He hit fours in the first three balls. Now four runs were needed in three balls. These runs came easily in the last three balls and Lahore Qalandars won. With this victory, Lahore's team reached the top of the points table with four wins in five matches. On the other hand, Islamabad's team slipped to fourth place.

Milkha Singh's words blew life in the career of this Indian footballer, even today we remember inspiration

Milkha Singh's words blew life in the career of this Indian footballer, even today we remember inspiration

The country lost its legendary sprinter Milkha Singh on Friday. Milkha Singh's life is an inspiration for anyone. He has set many records in his life and has set benchmarks for the people. Whatever he got from him, he used to learn something or the other. His inspirational words have the power to add to the broken courage of anyone. Something similar happened to Gurpreet Singh Sandhu, the goalkeeper of the Indian football team. Sandhu has told that the words of Milkha Singh, popularly known as Flying Sikh, inspire him even today.

Gurpreet recalled the words of Milkha Singh and told that this great sprinter told him that "You don't have to stop." Sandhu said that his advice helped him to fight the challenges during his European tenure. Veteran Milkha Singh passed away on Friday in Chandigarh due to complications related to Kovid-19. Thousands of countrymen, including players, paid tribute to him.

no substitute for hard work

Recalling the day he received the award from Milkha Singh at a function in Chandigarh in 2015, Gurpreet said, “He (Milkha) told me, “There is no substitute for hard work. I used to vomit blood several times during practice but you don't have to stop. At that time, I was playing club football in Norway with FC Stabeck, where every day was a struggle to prove myself and make it to the starting team. It was a big challenge while abroad, there were days when it was difficult to maintain my enthusiasm.

He said, "However, I myself used to remember the advice of 'Flying Sikh'. He was a great motivator and inspired me to give my all every day. The words he spoke to me are with me even today and will continue to be a great source of inspiration. His words and blessings will be with me whenever I fight for my country on the football field.

keeps the legacy alive

Gurpreet became the first Indian footballer to play in Europe's top division in 2014, representing Norway's FC Stabeck. He remained with the team until 2017 and during this time became the first Indian player to play in the Europa League (European football's second level club competition) in 2016.

Remembering Milkha Singh, who missed out on a bronze medal by a hundredth of a second at the Rome Olympics (1960), Gurpreet said, "The saga of great people and their legacy lives on forever. Milkha Singh ji and his life story have influenced billions of people in India and across the world. He may not be with us but he will continue to inspire generations to come. We all have grown up reading about him and will never forget to share the stage with him. That moment will always be close to my heart.
