12:08am That's all from our coverage tonight. See you soon!

McCullum: Winning meansa lot, absolutely. It hasn't been out best tournament but the last three games have gone well and it's a pleasure to be part of this unit that's trying very hard. We've lost a few critical moments early on and we could've probably won two or three more. But now that the pressure's gone, we've probably find the intensity and team connections. Shaheen - I like him a lot! He's got an immense amount of talent and a good strong head on his shoulders. I'm sure he's gonna be a superstar.

Sarfraz: We have discussed the scenarios for qualification but Zaman played an incredible innings. The bowling was alright, but Zaman was flawless. He hit very cleanly. His batting was good, more than our bowling being bad.

Fakhar: Been trying for a while to play a long innings. Luck was on my side today and I used my start. Early on our combination wasn't setting in and our middle order wasn't in form. So we wanted to make sure someone from the top batted well. I've given myself more time these days and then I play my game.

Fakhar Zaman is the Man of the Match.

11:51pm Third win for Lahore. Handshakes all around...except when Sohail comes across Yasir. A complete snub. A bit of clowning, but it's a solid win. They've done well to resist two blitzkriegs, one front Roy, one from Rossouw to manage a decent margin in the end. Fakhar Zaman, of course, set it all up for them. The spinners then strangled Quetta in the middle.

Shaheen Shah Afridi to Mohammad Nawaz, no run, lbw given and Nawaz reviews. It's a full ball from around the wicket, strikes him plumb in front of middle as he looks to slog. There's no edge on it either. This will come down to whether it pitched in line...it didn't. Marginally outside leg stump. He survives

END OF OVER:

  • Sohail Khan4-0-30-0
  • Shaheen Afridi3-0-28-1

A superb over from Sohail, poor behavious notwithstanding. Yasir was rightfully ticked off and still has a stern look. Lets hope they work that out...

Sohail Khan to Mohammad Nawaz, 1 run, yorker at leg stump. Can't do more than jam this out to long-on

Sohail Khan to Sarfraz Ahmed, 1 run, a sitter is put down at deep square. Watch your back Salman, Sohail's not a happy man at the moment. Short ball in at the hips and he swings a feeble pull, straight to the fielder, who looks like he's taken his eyes off it at the last moment
18.4
1b
Sohail Khan to Mohammad Nawaz, 1 bye, slower ball, back of a length outside off. Swings across the line and is beaten. Lands awkwardly in front of the keeper and he fumbles it

Bit of drama going on here. Sohail trying to get Yasir Shah's attention at deep backward square is annoyed and chucks the ball at him. The veteran isn't happy at all. Childish...

Sohail Khan to Sarfraz Ahmed, 1 run, full and swung in at leg stump. Swings across the line again to Zaman's right at deep midwicket. Not enough power on it

Sohail Khan to Sarfraz Ahmed, 1 run, full and in at leg stump. Swings it away off his toes and Zaman does brilliantly at deep midwicket to leap and stop this to his right. And he keeps it to one as well

Sohail Khan to Sarfraz Ahmed, 1 wide, digs a slower bouncer in but it's too short. He looks to hook but it's too high

The all important 19th over. Can Sohail give Shaheen a healthy amount to defend?

Shaheen Shah Afridi to Mohammad Nawaz, no run, wide yorker outside off, and he can't reach it because the front leg has pressed a long way into the leg side

Stays around the wicket

1
Shaheen Shah Afridi to Sarfraz Ahmed, 1 run, no, he goes yorker again. Nails it down leg side. Sarfraz punches it past him to long-on's left

Young Shaheen has a bit of pressure on him now. Is this what Sarfaraz was waiting for? Shaheen's two overs? A big conference now with Yasir and Baz. Third man is coming in. Extra cover, mid-off and point are in too. Fine leg goes back. Will he dig it into the pitch?

17.2

Shaheen Shah Afridi to Sarfraz Ahmed, SIX runs, misses the yorker outside off. It's a friendly, knee-high full toss with a lot of room. He allows it to come on and opens the face to lift it over the point boundary

Shaheen Shah Afridi to Sarfraz Ahmed, no run, full and wide outside off. Backs away and makes too much room. Can't get bat on it

Sohail Khan to Mohammad Nawaz, 1 run, full on leg stump, clipped to deep square leg

Waseem Bukhari: "Interesting thing of the innings so far is that Quetta have hit 10 sixes in total, but only 5 fours. Still required rate is near 13. If only they had rotated the strike well, they could've been well placed to chase this one off with ease."
