    12.2 lines himself up and swings this length ball straight to deep midwicket. No timing whatsoever, got it off the bottom but it still needed to be taken. The sun was in his eyes, but Shafiq did wonderfully well. 83/3
    4.3 Has Watson deflected the ball back onto the stumps at the non-striker's end? Watson thinks he has Denly. Yes, Watson has finger-tipped the ball back onto the stumps to catch the England batsman short. This was very full on middle, presses forward and pats it back to the right of the bowler. Watson stretches his right hand and tips it back onto the stumps. Denly, who had strayed out of the crease, is gone. What an unfortunate way to get dismissed 34/1
    9.1 Rahat's extra pace and bounce has Azam nicking off! Back of a length, zipping away outside off, and kicks up. It was too close to off stump to venture a cut. Azam dares to go through with the shot and top-edges it behind to Sarfraz 57/2
    16.5 Given out, only for the batsman to refer this immediately. Straight off the helmet it looked like. He shaped to pull but is beaten for pace completely. Oh, wait. There may have been a small spike. The umpire gave it out and quickly realised he had made a mistake perhaps. By then, Ingram had already referred the decision upstairs. What happens next? The tiny little spike means the decision is upheld. Ingram is clearly unhappy as he walks off. Surely not enough to give it out? Ingram was in sensational touch. 131/4
    17.3 simplest of catches at point. This was short outside off, he backs away and helps it straight to the fielder. Catching practice, really. 132/5
    19.1 knocks over the leg stump with a full and straight delivery. Afridi looked in no control or rhythm. Looks to back away and swing behind square, but sees the stumps take a walk 140/7
    18.4 the short ball has done the trick. Went from around the stumps, angled it. Imad looks to ramp this over the keeper, but ends up feathering an edge through to Sarfraz. 138/6
    19.4 advances down the pitch to pull, Watson shortens his length and bowls this outside off, he swings through and gets a thin edge through to Sarfraz. 144/9
    19.2 wicket No. 200 for Watson in T20s. This is a miscued slog that Umar Amin takes running in from deep midwicket. They've now lost five wickets for nine runs. Looked to swing this over the ropes but got it high on the bat. 140/8

    2.1 drifts in on middle stump, Asad Shafiq skips out and plays an aerial flick. But can't clear deep square leg. Karachi captain Imad lets out a roar and celebrates animatedly. Christiano Ronaldo-esque celebration from Imad 4/2
    1.5 Farcical running between the wickets, and Watson has been dismissed this time. Short of a length and angling away outside off, Watson wants to pull it against the angle. Instead, he bottom-edges the pull onto his thigh. He isn't aware where the ball is. Shafiq runs in, then hesitates. Watson is hurt, having smashed the ball onto his thigh. He then stops running. Rizwan, the keeper, collects the ball, and takes the bails off. Talk about adding injury to insult. Watson hobbles off after being run out. Watson not third-time lucky 4/1
    12.3 Boom Boom has created magic here and Dubai roars. The entire Karachi side runs up to him to give him a big hug. This is definitely in the shortlist for the best catch in recent times. Afridi's anticipation is magnificent here. Coming back to the shot: this is a length ball which he lifts through the line. For most parts, it seems as if the ball will creep over Afridi at long-on, but he arches back, times his jump well and puts his right hand out to take the catch. As this happens, he realises he'll tip over the ropes, so hurls the ball in the air, goes out, comes back in and completes the catch. Then he brings out the arms aloft pose. Wow, this boy still has it in him, doesn't he? What an entertainer. 70/6
    4.1 Mills takes down Pietersen with his first ball. Pitched up and outside off, Pietersen, having shuffled across off, can't get enough elevation. He chips a catch to Bopara at short midwicket 15/3
    8.5 Imad Wasim brings out the Cristiano Ronaldo celebration again! Rossouw steps out again, this is shorter on middle and cramping the batsman for room. He miscues a pull to Bopara at wide long-on 45/4
    11.4 the umpire's call will stay and Quetta sink further. Sarfraz makes the cardinal sin of looking to sweep against the turn from outside off, this drifted in and spun away to hit him on the pad. Height and impact was in question and it comes back as umpire's call. The ball would've gone on to hit the stumps. 66/5
    17.2 snakes back in a long way to tickle through to the keeper off an inside edge. Nawaz looked to make room and go over cover, but was late on the stroke. That could be the final nail in Quetta's coffin as far as this match is concerned. Nawaz started well but just couldn't bring out the big shots towards the end. 113/7

    18.6 as easy as they come as far as catches go. Rizwan backs away wanting to pull but Mills cramps him for room and this ill-advised pull turns into a slice to the keeper. 122/8
    19.6 excellent improvisation but he can't beat the man at long-off. Walks across, takes this low full toss and looks to belt it over long-off, but turns out to be a simple catch. This is the first time Kings have beaten Gladiators in PSL's short history. Imad Wasim begins his PSL captaincy career with a convincing victory. 130/9
