This is probably the best ball any spinner has bowled in the PSL so far. Nawaz has shown great potential with his all-round abilities and which is why he is now a part of the Pakistan T20 squad for the Asia Cup and World T20.
Nawaz was the man of the match against Peshawar Zalmi in the first playoff. Defending a total of just 133, the Quetta Gladiators were required to get early wickets and Nawaz provided them two on two balls. First Hafeez and then Hodge.
Hafeez lost his off stump playing a cut towards the point and on the very next ball; Hodge was cleaned up on an absolute Jaffa. This ball pitched on the middle stump at a length that made Hodge play at it by going to his front foot.
The ball turned a lot and Hodge who thought had it covered was absolutely stranded in the middle. The ball passes the outside edge of the bat and went on to hit the middle of off stump and Hodge was cleaned up on the first ball.
The moment the light lit up, there were roars and celebrations within the players and the audiences. There was a huge part of the crowd supporting Quetta Gladiators and they had their moment in the game thanks to Nawaz.
Quetta Gladiators and Nawaz went on to get the win against Peshawar Zalmi in a thriller at the end of the day. This was a truly big moment for the Quetta Gladiators. They entered the PSL as underdogs and now they were the toughest side in PSL.
