County All-Rounder Whiteley Makes Pakistan Super League Debut

Ross Whiteley has made his first appearance for Multan Sultans in the Pakistan Super League in Dubai.

The Worcestershire all-rounder has had to wait until the Sultans seventh match of the tournament to make his bow.

Whiteley batted at number six in the group match against Quetta Gladiators and made 16 off 15 balls.

He struck one six – over long-on against Australian seamer Ben McLaughlin – before holing out at mid off against Rahat Ali.

It was Whiteley’s first knock since December 17 when he appeared in the inaugural T10 tournament in Sharjah.

He added 38 for the fifth with skipper Shoaib Malik who ended unbeaten on 65 as the Sultans totalled 152-5 in their 20 overs.

But the Gladiators earned a two wicket win with one ball to spare despite Umar Gul returning 6-24.

Whiteley and the Sultans still top the table with nine points from seven games – comprising four wins, two losses and one no result.
