Mohammad Hafeez: The boys were really keen to win this game. We have some issues with injuries, like our captain not being there, so this was quite an important win for us. We have watched Lahore's matches and we knew that we needed to keep the pressure up. They are quite one-dimensional and we knew it was a matter of only one wicket.

Brendon McCullum: A tough day in the office again. We've definitely taken a stride back, but we have a few days off and some tough calls need to be taken. We've lost 35 wickets for 105 runs and with stats like these we are never going to win. We have to eradicate our thought process of 'there it goes again'. But we are still in this competition and are optimistic about our chances.

Liam Dawson, the England left-arm spinner, is Player of the Match for his three-for on debut. "It is obviously nice to come into a new tournament and do well. You are always under pressure as an overseas player and you have to perform well, but I am glad it came out well."

This is the largest victory in terms of balls to spare for Peshawar Zalmi. The seventh consecutive loss for Lahore Qalandars is now the joint-worst losing streak in the tournament's history. Karachi Kings have had a similar run in the past. Just got the feeling Lahore were drained emotionally from last night's tie-breaker and have little to give. Five games left, even if they were to win the remaining five, qualification could be an uphill task, but in cricket, never say never.

Peshawar Zalmi is the first team to win by a 10-wicket margin in PSL history Orchestrated by two men: Hasan Ali on comeback and Liam Dawson, the left-arm spinner, on his tournament debut.

Sohail Khan to Kamran Akmal, 5 wides, slips this down leg, the keeper misses and this bursts to the boundary. Game, set and match to Peshawar Zalmi. This has been an absolute hiding for Lahore Qalandars. Five losses in five. At the moment, the first win looks a long, long way off.
