11.43pm Multan were too good again. They had enough firepower with their batting to carry them to an above-par score, and then they had the defensive bowling ability to cruise to a 19-run win to retain top spot. Sohail Tanvir led the Sultans, with figures of 3 for 14. Kieron Pollard also chipped in with three wickets. In the end, Peshawar just could not put together many substantial stands to challenge Multan's prowess. There were sparkling innings from Mohammad Hafeez and then Liam Dawson, but it was nowhere near enough eventually.

Pollard to Wahab Riaz, SIX runs, smashed for six to finish, a slower ball outside off, Riaz charges at the bowler and pummels the ball over long-on. Multan win by 19 runs, to keep their spot at the top of the PSL points table.

Pollard to Mohammad Hafeez, OUT, another slower ball, another wicket. Goes wide of the crease, and bowls a really slow, full delivery outside off. Hafeez looks to heave that away but all he can manage is a leading edge, lobs to Sangakkara.

Pollard to Hasan Ali, OUT, another wide slower ball outside off, Hasan Ali clears his front leg and toe-ends a heave to deep midwicket. He had to drag that shot, which is why there was no timing.

Sohail Tanvir to Mohammad Hafeez, no run, that is surely the end of the game. A back of a length delivery outside off, Hafeez too swings and misses.

Sohail Tanvir to Hammad Azam, OUT, edged and gone! A full delivery is angled away outside off, Azam looks to heave the ball in the opposite direction, all he manages is a thin outside edge to Sangakkara.

Sohail Tanvir to Dawson, OUT, is that the game? Should be. A full, wide delivery outside off. All Dawson can do is slice the ball. Bravo runs in from the sweeper cover boundary and takes a low catch. Could not get enough timing or power behind the stroke.

33 off 12. Peshawar need a 20-run over.

Junaid Khan to Dawson, 1 run, decent comeback from Junaid. 17 runs off the over, just about par. A short delivery down leg, Dawson pulls towards square leg, the fielder puts a tough chance down. It's Irfan, diving to his right. Actually, only he could have got there. He saved three.

Junaid Khan to Mohammad Hafeez, 1 run, a low full toss outside off, hit away to long-on. Couldn't do much with that.

Junaid Khan to Mohammad Hafeez, FOUR runs, four more. 15 runs off the over. The towels are out with dew and the bowlers are erring. A low full toss outside off, driven over cover for four. Picks the gap, excellent execution. Brings up his fifty

Junaid Khan to Mohammad Hafeez, FOUR runs, this over is keeping Peshawar in this. 11 off three balls. A short delivery outside off, the slower one. Sits up for Hafeez and he slaps it into the gap at midwicket for four.

Junaid Khan to Dawson, 1 run, a full, wide delivery outside off is sliced to a deep cover. Just one.

Junaid Khan to Dawson, SIX runs, Dawson's cameo is threatening Multan. A full delivery is in the slot outside off, Dawson clears his front leg, goes deep in the crease to get underneath the length and heaves the ball over long-on.

50 off 18. Too much, you would think.

Imran Tahir to Mohammad Hafeez, no run, looking for the full-blown switch hit but Tahir slows it up down leg. Hafeez doesn't look like a batsman by the time he makes contact, hit to point.

Four off the first three, pushes that asking rate up.
