    2.2 Devcich looking for an encore but this time he hasn't connected as perfectly as in the previous attempt, the ball meets the blade pretty high, the bat turns in his hands as well, the ball loops high and doesn't get very far, simple catch at mid-off 15/1
    5.4 a strange innings from Williamson comes to an end, he was looking for plenty of slogs, he doesn't need to do that, he looks to club the ball past midwicket once more, top edge and the ball loops for a keeper catch 36/2
    7.5 caught and bowled! Harris was trying to clip the ball to the leg side, ends up spooning a simple catch back to the bowler, just as Knights were seeming to have got some momentum going, another wicket goes down 60/3
    17.2 at last something goes right for the keeper, Flynn is foxed by Rasool, he is a long way down, Umar has loads of time to take the bails off, no mistake this time, it was a quicker one from Flynn, slides between the batsman and leg stump 150/4
    19.3 full toss, Watling can't get a proper hold of that, the ball soars high up in the air, Shehzad pouches it at long-on, Watling seemed to be tiring towards the end of his innings, superb effort from him after his team were in early trouble 167/5
    19.4 and another catch for Shehzad, a full ball that Styris wanted to clobber out of the park, again he doesn't connect as well as he wants, the ball goes high, Shehzad races in off the rope and completes a superb catch 167/6

    1.3 beauty! that was spectacular from Southee, the very best response from a quick, a pinpoint yorker that crashes into the base of the stumps, offstump is rattling, Jamshed may have survived a jaffa from Boult in the previous over, doesn't survive this time 5/1
    2.3 gone! superb stuff this from the Knights, this one from Boult doesn't come back in, goes on with the angle, Shehzad fishes at it, a regulation catch for the keeper, who doesn't put it down, what a start this is from Knights, Shehzad signals that he didn't pick up the direction the ball was going 12/2
    3.3 Lahore Lions collapsing here, the Southee short ball does the job, Hafeez wanted to hammer that away towards midwicket, edges it through to the keeper, he had escaped a similar fate in the previous Southee over when the edge was healthy enough to fly over the keeper, not this time, Lahore three down 16/3
    5.4 doesn't matter if the bouncer doesn't work, the full one does the job, full swinging ball was definitely going to hit the stumps, umpire takes a moment to decide whether there was any bat involved, he decides there isn't, five down, there was an inside edge there, but the umpire failed to spot that 19/5
    4.1 this game is done and dusted, Umar Akmal is bowled now, it was a short of length ball jagging in, Umar Akmal looking to drive that, inside-edges it and the stumps are disturbed, all the talk about the Lahore Lions batting in the lead-up to the campaign was about how top heavy it is, the top order has failed spectacularly today, does they have a lower-profile player who can bail them out? 17/4
    17.6 thee perfect finish to an appalling performance from Lahore Lions, the ball looped up after the batsman attempted to keep out a short ball, it drops near his feet, Boult charges towards it, the batsman is several yards out of the crease, relieved that it wasn't a catch, but Boult makes sure there is a wicket as he underarms a back-hand flick to have Nasim run-out 98/10
    9.1 a relay catch? sensational effort from Southee, a slog from the batsman sends the ball flying towards the midwicket boundary, Southee back-pedals towards the rope, with his foot inches from the rope, his arms are over the rope as he takes an overhead catch, he was going to go over the line so he lobs the ball to Mitchell , who collects it easily, unfortunately the replays show Southee's boot had brushed the boundary skirting as he took that, TV commentators bizarrely saying that it should be given out even though Southee's boot touched the rope, at least I thought it was clear Southee touched the rope, the third umpire didn't, instead of a six for Lions, it is a sixth wicket for Lions, for all that, Tim Southee's name won't even be on the scorecard 34/6
    10.1 this is a party for Northern Knights, Ish Sodhi gets the ball and he strikes first ball, Wahab Riaz struck in front as he looks to sweep, umpire starts giving him out, takes a while to complete raising his hand 37/7
    14.2 looks to slog that one to midwicket, slices it and that is a simple catch at cover, why are Lions not looking to bat out the 20 overs and improve the net run rate? should have been the aim since Umar Akmal's wicket at least 67/8
    16.1 length ball is defended towards backward point, is there a run-out? yes, and due to more awfulness from Lahore Lions, Rasool makes a lazy attempt at getting back after taking several strides out of the crease, the throw from point is perfect and Rasool is caught short, where are the sort of dives that Flynn put in to make his ground? 80/9
