View dismissal Babar Azam c Wahab Riaz b Jordan 1 7 0 0 14.28
1.1 Babar Azam holes out to mid-off! Short and outside off, Babar looks to pull over the leg side. Ends up losing his shape and scooping a simple catch to mid-off. The pressure of dots probably got to him 2/1
View dismissal CH Gayle b Wahab Riaz 40 31 2 4 129.03
11.5 Wahab delivers the killer blow. The zing bails light up now and Wahab lets out a big roar. Rapid yorker, Gayle is beaten for pace. Wahab hits the leg stump again. This one does the job for Peshawar. Karachi coach Arthur throws his head back in despair 80/5
View dismissal KC Sangakkara*† c Samuels b Wahab Riaz 15 13 1 1 115.38
4.5 140.5ks short delivery outside off. Sanga is beaten for pace. He is late onto the pull. Ends up skying a catch off the top edge to Samuels at point. Karachi's chase going nowhere 19/2
View dismissal Shoaib Malik c Mohammad Hafeez b Jordan 0 1 0 0 0.00
5.1 Hafeez throws himself to his left from mid-on and completes a sprawling catch. Karachi three down. Malik is waiting near the edge of the boundary as the umpires check for a possible no-ball. Jordan is fine. Malik has to go. Full on off stump, Malik lofts half-heartedly and chips it to mid-on. Soft, soft dismissal 19/3
View dismissal RS Bopara st †Kamran Akmal b Mohammad Hafeez 6 11 0 0 54.54
8.2 Bopara skips down the track. Hafeez duly shortens his length. This one slides away wide outside off with the angle from around the wicket. Bopara reaches out but can't touch the ball. Kamran does the rest behind the stumps 35/4
View dismissal KA Pollard c †Kamran Akmal b Wahab Riaz 47 26 4 3 180.76
17.5 Pollard goes and with it Karachi's hopes? Very full and wide outside off, Wahab forces Pollard to reach out for the ball. He throws his bat at it and thickly edges it behind. Kamran gulps it down. If Pollard had left that alone, it could have been an off-side wide 142/6
View dismissal Imad Wasim c Mohammad Hafeez b Jordan 24 19 1 1 126.31
18.2 really full and wide outside off again. Jordan asks Imad to reach out for the ball. The batsman does so and slices a cut to backward point. Good, diving catch from Hafeez 144/7
