7.29pm One minute before the toss for the next game is supposed to take place, Zalmi finally push ahead of Sultan's to win the game. Imam ul Haq's fifty set up their chase, but it took Pollard's explosive hitting to turn the match decisively in Zalmi's favour.

Abhijato: "What a lovely time to be alive, Mr Brickhill! Hasan Ali being on fire, and Pollard hitting sixes for fun like he's done forever! So, my Crystal Ball takes its last bow in PSL 2019 with an accurate prediction, and I shall take care of it forever! It has been a slow, yet entertaining thriller like cricket keeps producing. As I take my leave as an assumed mystic, I would like to thank fellow readers for playing along with the predictions, and you+Cricinfo for making cricket be even more lovely!"

Hassan8018: "Junaid heel is on the line..so it is not a no ball..dont know which footage you saw..but in Pak. Geo super brodcasting the match.& It is out." -- Unfortunately some part of the heel has to be behind the line in order for the delivery to be legitimate, so, no.

Junaid Khan to Imam-ul-Haq, OUT, low, dipping full toss from Junaid, and Imam misses it to be struck on the boot. There's an extended appeal, and eventually it's given out. Imam reviews ... and it doesn't look like Junaid has any part of his heel behind the line. It looks like a no-ball ... but it's been given out! Is the TV umpire seeing a different feed to everyone else? Not sure how this can be given out, but it has been. Ball-tracking shows umpire's call, and Imam trudges off
