    10.5 the wrong'un does the trick! Full just outside off, but spins sharply inwards. Ronchi's down on one knee, trying to slog sweep, but the ball goes between bat and pad, and breaks off stump. Tahir's running away 91/2
    4.6 direct hit at the non-striker's! Yorker on middle stump, and dug away to cover. Quick pick up from Malik there and the direct hit means Duminy's well short. His bat got stuck in the turf while trying to run across, and that's probably why he couldn't slide his bat in 46/1
    14.4 cut, but straight to cover! Sohaib the man there. Good length outside off, and he tries to muscle this towards the on side. As easy as ABC for the fielder. A great first outing for Hales in PSL 2018 126/3
    18.2 back of a length on middle stump, flat batted down the ground, but straight to long on. Pollard the man there, and it's a regulation catch for the big man. Muscled this over the bowler, but didn't have the elevation on this occasion 164/4

    0.4 he's hit this right down the throat of deep midwicket. Oh, dear. Samit and Alex, the Nottingamshire boys, have combined to remove the in-form legend. Sanga made room and moved to the leg side, Samit followed him, he lofted it nicely but couldn't clear the bigger boundary. Big strike first up. 2/1
    4.2 slices this straight to third man. This is as easy as catches come. Shehzad plays a very poor stroke under the circumstances. Wanted to back away and go over cover but couldn't get any timing behind that. The bat face turned and he ended up spooning the simplest of catches. Not the kind of strokes or shot selection you expect from a player of Shehzad's ability. Time and again, he's been a disappointment this season. Multan slide further. 20/3
    0.5 two in two, and Samit does a Tahir as he takes off on a celebratory run. Saif Badar is out plumb in front. He had a chat with Shehzad regarding a review, but they do the right thing in the end. Absolutely plumb! This drifted in from around the stumps and skidded through, Badar looks to work this towards midwicket, misses it altogether. Aleem Dar had no doubts whatsoever. 2/2
    5.1 this is a sensational catch at mid-on. Maqsood shapes to pull but ends up fetching it from way outside off, because of which there's no timing. This still had to be taken. Hales timed his jump to perfection and used his height to good effect to pull off that stunner. 20/4

    17.4 flicked straight to Hales at deep square leg. Sami went full and straight on leg stump, Pollard didn't get enough power or elevation. Is that the end now for Multan? Islamabad can breathe 142/8
    13.6 deceived in flight as he looks to hit this over the sightscreen, ends up skying this to JP, who calls for it, settles underneath it and takes it with his fingers pointing upwards. Brave from Shadab to toss it up, rewarded for it too. 90/6
    15.5 this time into the blockhole, he's drilled this straight back as the ball deflects off Sami's fingers onto the stumps. Tanvir caught outside the crease, very unlucky. 118/7
    18.5 mistimed slog that is easily taken at deep midwicket. It's falling apart now. Gul got this low on the bat as he swung through 148/9

    19.1 right into the blockhole and the middle pole takes a walk as he swings and misses. Islamabad United are through to the playoffs 152/10
