View dismissal DR Smith c Mohammad Nawaz b Zulfiqar Babar 0 3 0 0 0.00
0.3 good length at middle, his eyes light up, he isn't to the pitch, gets it high on the bat and it goes straight to long-off 0/1
View dismissal Rafatullah Mohmand c Zulfiqar Babar b Perera 17 16 1 1 106.25
8.2 short at middle stump, premeditates and runs down the track. Could've played a pull shot if he stayed back, but has to try and hit this rising ball over cover. Gets it high on the bat and it flies straight to third man 60/2
View dismissal Hussain Talat c Perera b Zulfiqar Babar 56 39 6 2 143.58
10.4 gets under this too much and holes out to long-off. Tossed up outside off, tempts the young man who takes the bait. It's pushed slightly wide, so he can't get power behind this. Experience v youth 76/3
View dismissal Misbah-ul-Haq* c Mohammad Nawaz b Anwar Ali 25 25 0 1 100.00
17.6 low full toss at middle stump, goes deep in the crease, tries to lift it over midwicket with trademark Misbah setup, but he hasn't got enough bat and it's taken 10 yards inside the boundary at deep midwicket 135/5
View dismissal BJ Haddin c Anwar Ali b Hasan Khan 22 16 3 0 137.50
15.3 tossed full outside off, steps out and gets too far away from it as he goes inside-out, bottom of the bat, straight to long-off 117/4
View dismissal SR Watson lbw b Anwar Ali 29 16 2 2 181.25
19.6 low full toss at middle, right in the slot but he's completely missed that. Is the visibility bad? Don't know, but that has whacked him in the soft area right above his back knee. Plumb in front. He's hobbling off and there will surely be a swelling 165/6

  Quetta Gladiators innings (target: 166 runs from 20 overs) R B 4s 6s SR
View dismissal Asad Shafiq b Mohammad Irfan 8 9 1 0 88.88
2.4 got him! Shafiq has played out a reverse-evolution of the pull shot. In control the first time, wild slog the next, and this time he's playing it away from the body and drags it on from outside off 16/1
View dismissal Ahmed Shehzad c Shadab Khan b Mohammad Sami 59 51 5 1 115.68
17.1 but this partnership will not even put on a run. Full at leg stump, clears the front leg and tries to launch this over long-on, but he puts in a nice jump and takes it Aussie style, comfortably 149/3
View dismissal KP Pietersen lbw b Shadab Khan 69 43 6 3 160.46
16.6 he's running in celebration even before the umpire has lifted the finger. He's also the only one appealing, but isn't going to be embarrassed. Back of a length googly at leg stump, Pietersen walks across and is trapped in front of middle. Why didn't anyone else appeal? Was there bat? KP isn't happy, so there might have been. We'll wait for the replays...replays show that would've gone above leg stump. 149/2
RR Rossouw not out 9 8 1 0 112.50
View dismissal Sarfraz Ahmed*† c Hussain Talat b Rumman Raees 3 4 0 0 75.00
18.2 back of a length at off stump, goes for the pull but hits it high. Poor shot. Flies towards Talat who fumbles but holds on this time on the second attempt after running in from deep square 159/4
View dismissal Anwar Ali run out (Smith) 2 5 0 0 40.00
19.5 Mohammad Sami to Rossouw, low full toss outside off, tries to club this, bottom of the bat to long-off, Ali comes back and puts in a dive...but it's a direct hit! It looks out! It is! Third umpire confirms the absolute foolery of Quetta Gladiators who now have to get 3 off the last ball. Smith with the throw 163/5
