The ongoing Pakistan Super League (PSL) exhibition match between Quetta Gladiators and Peshawar Zalmi attracted a lot of eyeballs due to a non-cricketing reason. The match was briefly halted due to a bomb blast in Quetta at Musa Chowk. Reports also claimed that some people ignited a fire and pelted stones outside the stadium which was the reason behind the halt in the game. However, fans finally got to witness some entertaining action in the match when Gladiators' Iftikhar Ahmed smashed Wahab Rihab for six sixes in the final over of the innings. 


In the 20th over of the innings, Ahmed hit 36 runs as Sarfaraz Ahmed-led side posted 184 on board. Ahmed remained unbeaten on 94.
