That's all from our side for this time. See you soon.

Asif Ali is the Man-of-the-Match. "I try to play as per my strengths," says. "I try to hit straight. We made a comeback during the death overs and the credit goes to our bowlers to restrict them to 168. I don't mind batting at any position, I am happy to bat at any number."

Sohaib Ahmed: "Well one thing is for sure Rizwan is not sleeping tonight, after that drop catch cost Kings the win."

11.42pm Another last-over finish in the PSL. But Islamabad United kept their calm and crossed the line with four balls and five wickets in hand. While Rumman Raees picked up three with the ball to restrict Karachi Kings to 168, it was Asif Ali who made the difference with a six-laden 38-ball 70. The win has also put Islamabad United at the top of the points table with four wins from seven games.
