    4.1 and he strikes right away! Arm-ball skids off the surface and arrows in to hit the back pad. IPL's new millionaire was neither forward nor back. Watson is trapped in front. He pays the penalty for playing for the turn 31/1
    11.2 and Amir comes back and breaks it! This wasn't a threatening ball, however. Short and wide outside off, Sharjeel swings his hands through a pull. Wasim sprints in and hangs on to a low catch at deep midwicket 76/2
    15.1 Make that three wickets in eight balls. The middle stump is tilted back. Seam-up yorker, Latif is late to jab his bat down. He hears the death rattle 91/5
    14 another of these floaty slower ones outside off, Latif wants to force it away. But the ball goes only as fat as the bowler. Good awareness from Bopara. He collects the ball, turns back, and produces an over-arm throw to catch Zaidi short; he had strayed from the crease at the non-strikers end 89/2
    15 Mir sets off on a celebratory run! He hangs this one in the air, it stops and dips on Russell. He shapes to drive but chips a return catch. Two in two overs for Karachi 91/4
    18 Shakib runs in from long-on, keeps his eyes on the ball, and snaffles the catch! Bopara sucks pace off this ball as well. Misbah goes down on one knee. Misbah goes down. Swung into the hands of Shakib 111/7
    15.3 Islamabad crumble further. Four wickets in 10 balls. Billings dances out and is on the move again. He pushes it to point and sets off for a speedy single, Misbah isn't interested; Billings is sent back. Vince lets rip a direct hit and runs his England mate out 95/6
    19.3 Khalid backs away outside leg, Amir follows him with a yorker. Khalid misses it, but scampers across for a bye. The keeper, though, was pretty alert, he picked the ball up quickly and ferries it to Amir who hits the stumps with an over-arm throw 123/8

    1.4 flays that through to cover point where Zaidi stops that brilliantly by diving full length to his right, recovers quickly and fires a throw to the wicketkeeper's end, Simmons wasn't even in the frame. Total confusion there, but the wicket was brought about because of an outstanding effort on the field 2/1
    3.1 he's struck gold first ball. Gets some drift, pitches on off, breaks back in sharply, gets a bit of fizz as well, Vince looks to whip it past midwicket, is a touch late on the stroke and is trapped plumb in front. Would've crashed into middle and leg. Ajmal is delighted, his team mates are unstoppable. What a start this by Islamabad United 3/2
    6.1 excellent delivery, excellent catch. Bowls a cutter on off again, Wasim looks to run it down but manages to get a thick edge that is nicely pouched by Sam Billings diving low to his left. That should rejuvenate Islamabad. 35/3
    7.3 played on! Looks to ease it wide of point again, but has no room to work with and ends up chopping it back onto the off stump. Sami lets out a roar, he knows the value of this wicket. Karachi Kings in trouble 40/4
    14.4 he's swept that straight to deep square leg. Looked to play the slog over the ropes there, but turned out to be a flat hit. The fielder in the deep came running in, held his balance, got down on one knee and managed to take the catch even as the momentum of the ball threatened to take him back. Shakib was looking mighty dangerous, that is a big wicket. Is that the clincher? 86/6
    12.5 so the drop catch doesn't cost them much. Slower bouncer again, looks to pull but was targeting the longer boundary, didn't get that anywhere near the middle, and the deep midwicket fielder takes a dolly. A scratchy innings has come to an end 71/5

    15 looks to work it wide of midwicket but gets a leading edge that is superbly taken by the cover fielder running backwards. Another one bites the dust. The wicketkeeper walks back without disturbing the scorers. 87/7
    16.1 slower delivery on middle, tucked wide of the bowler, who runs quickly to get to the ball and then turns around to hurl a direct hit at the bowler's end. Tanvir was halfway down the pitch and had no chance of getting back. Superb work by the bowler, tremendous athleticism 90/8
    19 looks to play a pull, but the ball gets big on him, having missed the ball, he tries to steal a single to get Bopara back on strike and wanders outside the crease, Billings underarms a throw at the striker's end to catch him well short. Wide signalled 118/9
