Pakistan‘s left-arm spinning all-rounder Hassan Khan made a bright start to his T10 League campaign by chipping in with a match-winning effort for Punjabi Legends against Kerala Knights in Sharjah on Monday.
The Legends posted a total of 107-5 in their 10 overs with Umar Akmal hitting 30 from 17 balls. That total was by no means safe as Mohammad Shahzad had chased down 95 in four overs at the start of the tournament for the Rajputs.
Knights opener Chris Gayle looked to be in form, hitting 35 from 19 but Hassan chipped away at the other end.
The left-arm spinner accounted for the scalps of captain Eoin Morgan and Upul Tharanga during a fine spell of 4-21 in his two overs as the Legends prevailed by 36 runs. The Knights were dismissed for 71 inside nine overs.
Hassan, 20, captained the Pakistan team that lost the U19 World Cup semi-final to India earlier in the year. His is part of the Pakistan Super League and switched from Quetta Gladiators to Lahore Qalandars for the fourth edition of PSL.
