11.46pm Too good for the second night running have been the Karachi Kings. They first recovered from a faltering start to post 159, a score that was well above par. But then they came out and bowled far too well for the Lahore Qalandars, whose keep-going T20 approach hasn't worked in the slower pitches of Dubai. Karachi continue to hold their spot at the top of the standings, with three wins in three games. Lahore are on the other end of that spectrum, with plenty of work to do after losing three in three.

Shahid Afridi is the Man of the Match

Mills to Mustafizur Rahman, OUT, that's the game! Karachi Kings win by 27 runs. Another slower ball, back of the hand, Mustafizur has no idea of what's coming. He is through his shot too early, the ball lobs back towards Mills off the splice of the bat. And another defeat for Lahore.
