All-rounder Faheem Ashraf and Paul Stirling starred in Islamabad United’s emphatic six-wicket victory over winless Quetta Gladiators in the Pakistan Super League on Tuesday. Fast bowler Ashraf’s 3 for 11 limited Quetta to 156 for 7 and then Stirling smashed 56 off 33 balls as Islamabad eased to 157 for 4 with three balls to spare.

The match was rescheduled for Tuesday after Islamabad’s leg-spinner Fawad Ahmed tested positive for COVID-19 on Monday.
