After a batting collapse in the early half of the first innings, Lahore Qalandars certainly made their way back into the match no. 15 of PSL 2021 on Wednesday through Faheem Ashraf. The all-rounder played a valiant 27-run knock on a difficult-looking wicket in Abu Dhabi, guiding his side to a total of 143/9 in 20 overs. However, Qalandars were desperate to get an early wicket in the second innings and Ashraf rose to the occasion once again.
Faheem Ashraf hits bulls-eye
After United got off to a decent start, the 27-year-old completely bamboozled Fakhar Zaman with a seam-up full length delivery which stuck on the pitch. The left-handed batsman completely missed the ball in an attempt to score a boundary as the ball crashed onto the top of off stump. The lights lit up as Shadab Khan's side got the all-important breakthrough and got themselves back into the contest.
While Faheem Ashraf certainly deserved to celebrate the wicket, it was his hilarious reaction that caught everyone's attention. The all-rounder looked absolutely surprised, probably with how Zaman completely made a mess of the delivery. He couldn't stop himself from smiling as he clapped in appreciation of his own bowling.

Islamabad United trolls Fakhar Zaman
The social media admin of Islamabad United certainly enjoyed as Ashraf clean bowled Zaman. While they praised Rana jeeee (Ashraf) for his fantastic delivery, they also did not miss the opportunity to troll Fakhar Zaman as they tweeted, "Wo Gaya Fakhar" after this dismissal.
After Zaman started off the innings with two consecutive boundaries, he looked out of sorts after that as difficult stay at the crease ended on 9 runs off 15 deliveries.
