During a Pakistan Super League (PSL) game between Islamabad United and Quetta Gladiators, young Pakistan fast-bowler Naseem Shah stunned New Zealand’s Luke Ronchi with a 142 kmph yorker.
Ronchi was looking to make room for himself on the off-side, but the delivery was too fast for him to deal with as the Kiwi batsman could not get his willow down on time as the ball crashed onto the base of his leg stump.
Shah returned with figures of 2/23 in the match.

Meanwhile, after put in to bat first, the Islamabad United posted a healthy 187-7 on the board. South Africa’s Colin Ingram top-scored for them with a 40-ball 63*.
Chasing 188 to win, the Gladiators gunned down the target with two balls to spare. Thanks to England’s Jason Roy (50 off 38), who scored his second fifty in the ongoing PSL followed by a cameo of Ben Cutting, who scored an unbeaten 42 off just 17 balls. Cutting’s innings was laced with four sixes and two boundaries.
Islamabad United 187 for 7 in 20 overs (Colin Ingram 63 not out, Shadab Khan 39; Naseem Shah 2 for 23, Tymal Mills 2 for 34) lost to Quetta Gladiators 190 for 5 in 19.4 overs (Jason Roy 50, Ben Cutting 42 not out, Sarfaraz Ahmed 33; Ahmed Safi Abdullah 2 for 27, Faheem Ashraf 2 for 46) by five wickets.
