11.30pm Quetta will be glad they've got the win under their belt, even though it came with a bit more huffing and puffing than they would have originally thought. Shehzad's spot in the XI will be under scrutiny, but thanks to the fantastic show by the bowlers, the Gladiators didn't ever face a situation where the required run-rate ran away from them. So Quetta are back at the top of the table, while Multan remain bottom and are all but out of the running. That's it from us folks, goodnight!

Mohammad Ilyas to Ahmed Shehzad, FOUR runs, shot too short and he goes on the back foot and swivels to pull it past short fine leg for a game-winning boundary. A bit of a flourish at the finish there from Shehzad to ensure Quetta Gladiators get to their target in the end.

Mohammad Ilyas to Bravo, 1 wide, tried to follow the batsman again, but this time he bowls it too far down leg for a wide. Bravo was coming down the wicket

Mohammad Ilyas to Bravo, no run, ooh that kept a bit low and went through Bravo. He was giving himself room but the bowler follows him and it goes through to the keeper

Mohammad Ilyas to Ahmed Shehzad, 1 run, stays still in his crease that time and glides this back of length ball outside off down to third man.

Mohammad Ilyas to Ahmed Shehzad, FOUR runs, finally some intent from Shehzad down the track and drills this back over the bowler's head for a much-needed boundary - for himself and for Gladiators

Mohammad Abbas to Ahmed Shehzad, no run, length ball on the stumps, pushed to cover for a tip and run, but he can't get it this time. This has been a fairly torrid innings from Shehzad so far

Mohammad Abbas to Bravo, 1 leg bye, tries to flick it off his pads, but the ball doesn't travel too far. They steal a quick single. Off cutter from a length and hit him on the pad flap

Graeme Smith really laying into Shehzad. "He hasn't even tried, there's been very little intent. He's certainly kept Multan in the game."

Mohammad Abbas to Ahmed Shehzad, 1 run, on the pads and flicked, but without timing and the ball only goes near short square leg. They take a single

Mohammad Abbas to Ahmed Shehzad, no run, down the track and the ball is through him. Not sure what shot he wanted to play because he just went for a poke - can do that from the crease, no need to rush down the track

16 needed off 18, which is much higher than Shehzad's strike-rate. And he's the 'set' batsman

Mohammad Ilyas to Umar Akmal, OUT, holes out to deep midwicket this is what happens when the runs dry down to a trickle. Umar Akmal knew he had to get a move on because Shehzad wasn't, comes down the track and plays a pick-up pull but only finds the man at the boundary

Mohammad Ilyas to Ahmed Shehzad, 1 run, length ball on the stumps and Shehzad tickles it around the corner. He wanted to hustled for the second, but slipped and fell a quarter of the way down the pitch and scrambled to get back. Might have hurt his hand a bit too

Mohammad Ilyas to Ahmed Shehzad, no run, another play and miss. Ilyas brings his line closer to off and Shehzad is just looking to poke at the ball, misses it
