After David Wiese’s all-round performance last night in the Eliminator 2 of the Pakistan Super League (PSL) 2022, Twitter is flooded with praises for the South African-born Namibian cricketer.

Wiese produced a sensational performance in the final overs of each of the two innings of the PSL 7 Eliminator 2 against Islamabad United in front of a packed to capacity Lahore crowd at the Gaddafi Stadium on Friday night to guide his side to a six-run win and a place in the PSL 7 final.

Weise turned the game on its head with the bat as he scored 26 runs off the final over of the Qalandars innings bowled by Waqas Maqsood. Waqas also conceded a wide, leaking 27 runs in the over as Qalandars went from a seemingly below-par 141 for seven to 168 for seven total in a matter of six balls.



Weise remained undefeated with his explosive 28 off eight.

The Qalandars all-rounder then conceded just one run off the four balls of the final over he bowled as Mohammad Wasim Jnr was run out and Waqas brilliantly caught in the deep by Abdullah Shafique as United were bowled out for 162 with two balls to spare.

The whole crowd at the Gaddafi Stadium, Lahore was chanting David Wiese’s name after his prolific all-round performance. Twitter too demanded an underpass in his name.

One of the Twitter users named Liberty roundabout of Lahore after David Wiese.

Wiese bagged Player of the Match award for his outstanding performance.

In post-match ceremony, he said: “That was an unbelievable game and unbelievable team effort. Fortunately it came off for me and I landed a couple of yorkers. It was meant to be. This game had everything. So many emotions out there. Thanks to the fans for coming out and supporting us.”

He also took to Twitter to thank his fans for the support.

Shaheen Shah Afridi took to Twitter to laud the team and efforts of players including Wiese, saying: “Absolutely fantastic display of team work, grit & determination. Special shout out to @David_Wiese, @HarisRauf14, @imabd28 & @ZamanKhanPak.”

He added: “Come on guys, just one more game to go & I want you to enjoy every bit of it. #MeHoonQalandar #DilSe.”

Lahore is set to play the final game against defending champions Multan Sultans on Sunday, February 27.
