Commentator: Deivarayan Muthu

7pm After offering to step down as captain yesterday night, McCullum has steered a rickety chase to help Lahore break their duck. The real star of the night, though, is 17-year-old Shaheen Afridi who ended with stunning figures of 5 for 4 - among the most economical five-fors in T20 history. That's a wrap of this match. Thanks for tuning in. Goodbye and good night for now

Abdul Khan: "Fawad Rana is probably in disbelief right now. Tell him this is real and not a prank!"
