Peshawar Zalmi made an impressive comeback as they defeated Karachi Kings in the first match of PSL 8 in Rawalpindi Cricket Stadium.

Zalmi made a solid comeback courtesy of marvelous half-centuries by debutant, Haseebullah, Rovman Powell, and Tom Kohler-Cadmore. Zalmi recovered to post a total of 197/5.
Kings got off to a flyer with Adam Rossington and Matthew Wade taking on the charge against the Zalmi bowling unit. Peshawar bowlers came back to strike on regular intervals as Kings were unable to chase down the target.
