England batter Jason Roy’s career-best T20 score- 145 not out from 63 balls helped Quetta Gladiators chase down 241 against Peshawar Zalmi in Match 25 of the ongoing season of the Pakistan Super League (PSL 2022) at the Rawalpindi Cricket Stadium on Wednesday, March 8. After smashing his second PSL hundred, Roy rated the innings against Peshawar as his best T20 innings, considering his team was chasing a daunting total of 241.

Returning to PSL 2023 after playing three ODIs for England in Bangladesh, Roy smashed the sixth T20 hundred of his career as Quetta recorded the biggest successful run-chase in the Pakistan Super League history. Roy’s unbeaten 145 off 63 balls was also the highest individual score in this year’s PSL. The right-handed batter hammered 20 fours and 5 sixes in his breezy 145*-run knock.

Gladiators opening batter’s swashbuckling innings overshadowed Peshawar skipper Babar Azam’s masterful hundred in the first innings as Peshawar compiled what they assumed would be more than enough to register their fifth win of the tournament.

“This is my best T20 innings, no doubt about it. Obviously a great wicket and fast outfield, so it’s just a case of trying to hit as many four and sixes and get close to the total [target] and see where we are at. 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. Anytime you are chasing over 200 and you chase that totally – doesn’t matter what the pitch is – it’s still an incredible feeling,” Jason Roy said after the match.

Quetta’s win over Peshawar kept their hopes alive in the competition after a historic run chase against Peshawar Zalmi. The eight-wicket win moved them to the fifth spot and gave themselves an outside chance to qualify for the next round, which looks unlikely at the moment.

With these sensational innings, Roy breached the 1,000-run mark in PSL at a staggering average of 41.70. Roy, who earlier represented Lahore Qalandars, has six fifties and two centuries to his name in the PSL. England’s star white-ball player also reached the milestone of 8000 runs in T20s. The 32-year-old now stands with 8,104 T20 runs at an average of 27.04, including six hundred and 53 fifties.
