Umar’s quickfire batting snatches victory from Gladiators

Gladiators had til now been unbeaten in their previous three matches, while Qalandars had no match to their name in previous two matches.

Akmal (93) and Cameron Delport’s (73) batting were supported by spinner Zafar Gohar’s four wickets to help Qalandars pick up the glory.
