Karachi Kings’ pace bowler Hasan Ali became the second bowler to claim 100 wickets in the history of the Pakistan Super League (PSL).

The right-handed pacer achieved the historic feat when he dismissed Alex Hales during his side’s clash against Islamabad United in the ongoing PSL season 9.

Prior to him, Peshawar Zalmi’s Wahab Riaz was the first player to breach the 100-wicket mark in the PSL history. He is currently the highest wicket-taker in the league’s history with 113 wickets.

Hasan Ali is closing on the record for the most wickets in PSL history, followed by Lahore Qalandars’ captain Shaheen Afridi, who has taken 98 wickets so far.

For the unversed, Hasan Ali joined Karachi Kings ahead of the PSL 9 Draft courtesy of the trade deal with Islamabad United, involving Imad Wasim.

Karachi Kings will face Quetta Gladiators tonight in their fifth match in the ongoing PSL 9 after losing to Islamabad United yesterday.

Islamabad United’s Colin Munro scored a quickfire 82 after a combined bowling effort to lead their team to a seven-wicket victory over Karachi Kings at National Bank Stadium.

Chasing 166, openers Munro and Alex Hales gave United a flying start to the pursuit with a century-plus partnership.

The left-handed batter dominated the match-defining stand while Hales played an anchoring knock which lasted in the 12th over, bowled by Hasan Ali.

Hales struck seven boundaries on his way to a 35-ball 47.

Meanwhile, Colin Munro stood his ground firm and carried his bat till the 15th over before falling victim to Mohammad Nawaz.

He remained the top-scorer for the United with a 47-ball 82 with the help of eight boundaries and four sixes.

The United then lost another wicket in the pursuit when Tabraiz Shamsi struck in the next over to send Imad Wasim (0) back.

The back-to-back dismissals halted the flow of runs for the United but skipper Shadab Khan and Salman Ali Agha batted sensibly amid their unbeaten 30-run partnership and steered the two-time champions to an important victory.

Shadab scored a cautious 10 off 11 deliveries while Agha made a 17-ball 25 with the help of two sixes.
