Afridi career-best figures led to Peshawar win

Shahid Afridi picked up career-best T20 figures of 5 for 7, setting up a comprehensive eight-wicket win for Peshawar Zalmi against Quetta Gladiators in Sharjah.

Afridi, who will be retiring from international cricket following the World T20 in India next month, struck off just his second ball, accounting for Akbar-ur-Rehman in the sixth over.

Afridi was left boasting figures of 4-1-7-5, and Quetta were reeling at 66 for 9, starting at the prospect of being bowled out inside 13 overs.

However,Grant Elliott came out as a saving grace who led a late rally, slamming a 29-ball 40 and adding 63 for the final wicket with Zulfiqar Babar. Their efforts lifted the team to 129.
