Commentator: Shashank Kishore

Not often do you see a player from the losing side being awarded the Player of the Match in small chases, but that's exactly how it is tonight. Dwayne Smith wins the award for his unbeaten 71.

Turned out to be much closer than it looked like at one stage. By no means a flawless chase from Karachi Kings. There was some struggle after some pristine batting early on by Joe Denly and Babar Azam. It helped that the target was 132 as it helped the batsmen enough time to play themselves in.

A late surge had given Peshawar hope of eking out a scrappy win, but Karachi were clinical when they came out. They prioritised keeping wickets in hand, knowing the run rate wasn't going to be an issue. Denly and Babar Azam kept the Kings on course, before Colin Ingram injected some impetus with a late onslaught, smashing 23 off 14 balls. A pair of late wickets and good bowling at the death meant Zalmi made it tight, but Imad Wasim's men were never in real danger of blowing this, with the captain himself smashing the last ball for six to secure victory.

Mohammad Asghar to Imad Wasim, SIX runs, sees the flight, gets to the pitch of the ball and drags this hit from outside off towards wide long-on, it clears the ropes and Karachi Kings make it two wins in two games.

Long-on, deep midwicket and deep backward square on the leg side.

Mohammad Asghar to Mohammad Rizwan, OUT, there's the wicket and the game is alive or what? Drama. Nicely tossed up, the ball dips on him, Rizwan looks for the glory hit but fails to get to the pitch of the ball and ends up hitting it straight down Jordan's throat at long-off.

Faizan: "Everything is going against PZ first half chance catch then missed run outs and now when they are catching umpire is not giving out, what worse they don't have any review left."

Umaid Asif to Bopara, no run, beaten by the slower delivery, through with the pull way too early. What an outstanding over from Umaid, Karachi need five off the final over

Umaid Asif to Bopara, no run, full and wide outside off, yorker length. Bopara looks to squeeze this down to third man but misses
