  Karachi Kings innings (20 overs maximum) R B 4s 6s SR
View dismissal Babar Azam c Hasan Ali b Shakib Al Hasan 46 38 6 1 121.05
8.6 advances down the ground and tries to loft this one over mid-on but he does not get the desired distance. Sends it in the direction of long-on where Hasan ali gets down forward and snaffles a sharp catch. That was really travelling and the fielder did well 72/1
View dismissal KC Sangakkara*† c Hasan Ali b Iftikhar Ahmed 28 22 3 0 127.27
10.2 Sangakkara's lovely innings come to an end. He's livid with himself as he walks away. Came down the track but could not get on top of that as it was not as full as he would have liked. Around the length area and he miscues the attempted lofted drive and sends it straight into the hands of long-off 75/2
View dismissal CH Gayle c Morgan b Iftikhar Ahmed 11 9 0 1 122.22
12.2 oh, that's a super catch by Eoin Morgan at long-on. Made it look so simple but he had to do some work there. Gayle comes down the track and tries to clear long-on. Morgan takes it revese-cupped, had to push back slightly to get behind that and he plants the foot just in front of the boundary cushion. The momentum takes him further back, so he throws the ball up, crosses the rope, gets back in front of it and completes the catch. They go upstairs to check if the foot has touched the rope when he first takes the catch. But I think the issue is when he catches the ball a second time. But it all seems fine and Gayle is already almost out of the ground. The big screen flashes the big three red letters and Gayle's poor PSL continues 90/3
Shoaib Malik not out 51 27 4 3 188.88
View dismissal RS Bopara c Sohaib Maqsood b Imran Khan 30 20 2 2 150.00
16.6 goes for an almighty heave again and this time Bopara gets a leading edge that is skied towards the fielder at backward point. Maqsood settles under it comfortably. This one wasn't as full and is slower in pace which does it as Bopara tries to carve it over the off side 134/4

  Peshawar Zalmi innings (target: 175 runs from 20 overs) R B 4s 6s SR
View dismissal Tamim Iqbal c †Sangakkara b Sohail Khan 16 11 3 0 145.45
3.6 that's a peach. Fires a tempter outside off and Tamim falls for the bait. Strides dangerously out and the angle takes the ball away from the left-hander. Gets a discernible outside edge that carries comfortably to the wicketkeeper. Tamim walked into that shot and Peshawar falter after a big over 33/2
View dismissal Kamran Akmal c Bopara b Sohail Khan 14 12 1 1 116.66
3.4 short of good length ball, Akmal swipes hard and it seems like he has played that pull shot to perfection. Gets it off the middle of the bat but just not enough distance. That's the longer boundary there. Ravi Bopara guarding the deep backward square leg fence and he snaffles it without having to move an inch. Straight down his throat 32/1
View dismissal Iftikhar Ahmed c †Sangakkara b Imad Wasim 1 3 0 0 33.33
4.2 stays in the crease and tries to punch this short of good length ball through the off side. He gets beaten as the ball goes to the wicketkeeper. Or has he? Appeal for caught behind and umpire Aleem Dar takes forever before raising the finger. Went off the inside edge that one. Lack of room does him in 33/3
View dismissal EJG Morgan c Bopara b Shoaib Malik 3 13 0 0 23.07
7.4 Morgan's last outing with Peshawar will not be one he savours. Pitched right up on the stumps and Morgan tries to clear the front leg and go big over the leg side. Picks out Ravi Bopara at wide long-on who pouches it reverse-cupped. Peshawar in all sorts of trouble here. Morgan trudges off having faced 13 balls for his 3 43/4
View dismissal Shakib Al Hasan c Bopara b Usman Khan 18 16 3 0 112.50
11.2 straight down the throat of long-on. Like Karachi earlier, Peshawar are struggling to clear the boundary. Shakib pulls this short of a length ball and there is a lot of muscle on the shot. Does not get the elevation or the distance as Bopara takes it comfortably 69/6
View dismissal Sohaib Maqsood c Pollard b Usman Khan 5 5 1 0 100.00
9.3 Kieron Pollard does it like only Kieron Pollard can. Man is this guy a genius or what! Full and angling in on the stumps, Maqsood lofts it straight down the ground and that never seemed like it was going to carry the distance. He did not have enough room to free his arms. Pollard takes it reverse-cupped inches in front of the ropes. The momentum takes him back as he was getting in position to take it and he does well to keep the foot inside the line. And makes it look like he took it in his sleep 58/5
View dismissal DJG Sammy* c Gayle b Sohail Khan 34 26 1 3 130.76
17.5 oh, what drama! Sammy cannot believe it. Stands in the crease and has his hands on his head. It was a short of a length ball and Sammy was swivelling around and looking to dispatch it fine. But he needed to get it a lot finer with short fine leg in place, does not do so and Gayle takes the catch. Seemed like it crashed into his chest as he rubs it. Still is as the new man comes in. Oh, yes, it hits him on the chest, bounces up and he takes the rebound 139/7
View dismissal Shahid Afridi c Gayle b Usama Mir 54 28 3 5 192.85
19.4 Afridi's highly entertaining, equally valuable innings comes to an end after a slog gone awry. Chris Gayle makes amends for his earlier lapse by running to his left and taking a good catch. Afridi skews it off the splice to the backward square leg region and Gayle moves like he has never moved to take that 165/9
View dismissal Wahab Riaz b Usman Khan 2 3 0 0 66.66
18.4 leg stump taken out. Wahab was backing away and ends up exposing all three stumps. Bulls-eye by the bowler as he fires a yorker. Wahab swings wildly and Usman hits 146/8
View dismissal Hasan Ali c Bopara b Usama Mir 10 4 1 1 250.00
19.5 and this is how it ends. Fittingly, Bopara, who has arguably been the best fielder of the night takes the catch at long-off. Hasan was looking to loft it and ends up skying it but does not get the distance desired. Bopara runs forward and slides to pluck another superb catch. Sammy and the rest of Peshawar look dejected, jubilation within the Karachi camp 165/10
