    Jason Roy discusses his record-breaking PSL performance.


    Quetta Gladiators won Match 25 of the Pakistan Super League on March 8 at the Rawalpindi Cricket Stadium after chasing down a tough 241-run mark set by Peshawar Zalmi thanks to a brilliant unbroken 145-run effort by Jason Roy (PSL).

    Records fell during the match as Roy, an Englishman, stormed the opposition team while assisting in the pursuit of 241 runs. Roy declared his innings to be his personal “best” after the game-winning hit. Roy scored an undefeated 145 from 63 balls by hitting 20 fours and five sixes. With this, he surpassed Colin Ingram’s unmatched 127 for Karachi Kings in 2019 as the highest score in PSL history.

    “This is my best T20 innings, no doubt about it. I am sure this will go down for me as one of the greatest, and it will definitely live for a long time in my memory. For me, in T20 cricket, this is my favorite-ever inning because I was there till the end. Incredible, that’s the only kind of word that can sum it up. It’s a great advert for PSL and T20 cricket,” told Roy during the post-match presentation. 

    Two outstanding centuries were recorded in the fight, which is noteworthy. While one game finished with a victory, the other’s conclusion was at the opposite end of the spectrum as Zalmi captain Babar Azam scored his first century (115 off 65 balls) in a losing effort. In the post-game speech, Roy continued to gush over Babar’s performance. Babar led his team to a massive 240 points by hitting 15 boundaries and three maximums.

    “That was incredible to watch; unfortunately, it was against us. To watch Babar first-hand was very special but he could have done with getting a little less to make it a little easier for us,” added Roy.
