PESHAWAR: Quetta Gladiators defeated Multan Sultans by two wickets in a sensational match of the Pakistan Super League (PSL) at Dubai International Stadium on Wednesday.

Multan Sultans after being invited to bat first scored 152 runs for the loss of five wickets. Captain Shoaib Malik was top scorer with 65 runs off 43 balls, while Sohaib Maqsood scored 27.
