11.55pm A thriller in Dubai, a proper T20 match, one way, then the other, then the other again. Quetta needed a win to boost their chances and in the end, it's the chasing side dominating the final stages of a T20 game (again). 22 off 12 came down to 9 off 9, then 9 off 6, then Quetta completed a two-wicket win, winning with two balls to spare. Chocolate cake for Sir Viv's birthday, that will taste sweet for an extra reason (unless it's a weirdly savoury cake). Anyway, there were cameos from the start to finish from Quetta that led the Gladiators forward, and in the end it was just about enough. Fine end to a great game of cricket, a result that opens up the PSL again.

Umar Gul is the Man of the Match

Pollard to Hassan Khan, SIX runs, Hasan picks the slower ball and wins the game for Quetta! Scenes here in Dubai. Sir Viv is pumped. A slower ball around off, Hasan clears the front leg and nails the slog over midwicket. Sublime timing. A much-needed win for Quetta.

3 off 2.

Pollard to Hassan Khan, 2 runs, a slower ball around off, heaved away into no-man's land. Plonks for a couple. Wow.

Pollard to Laughlin, 3 runs, and run-out? A slower ball outside off is heaved into the gap at square leg. The fielder dives and stops the ball from hitting the boundary, the throw is to Pollard at the bowler's end, who fails to collect the ball before breaking the stumps. That would have been a run-out had he collected, Laughlin was well short.

Pollard to Laughlin, no run, a slower ball outside off, 110 kph, Laughlin misses the heave. He is too early through the slower ball. Have to be set up for the slower ones

8 off 5.

Pollard to Hassan Khan, 1 run, a shortish slower ball outside off, heaved to deep square leg.

9 off 6. Quetta needed 9 off 9 at one point. Pollard's cutters to come.

END OF OVER:
19 | 13 Runs 2 Wkts | QG: 144/8 (9 runs required from 6 balls, RR: 7.57, RRR: 9.00)

Umar Gul to Anwar Ali, OUT, Umar Gul has six wickets. This match is turning one way, then the other, then the other. In the end, it comes down the last over. A short delivery down leg, a slower delivery, pulled away with bad timing to short fine leg. He was too early through the shot. Gul finishes with 6 for 24, he has passed 200 T20 wickets.
