11.45pm Hope you enjoyed our coverage. We'll see you tomorrow for more PSL cricket. Enjoy the rest of your evening, folks. It's goodbye from all of us at ESPNcricinfo. Tata!

11.40pm Really was a good game, some top-quality bowling from both sides: Iftikhar, Aamer, Rauf and Sandeep. This means that Karachi Kings move away from last place, while Lahore Qalandars remain at the bottom-half of the table.

Umar Bajwa: "Why Azaz Cheema was selected in place of Shaheen????????? Why Carlos Braithwaite is not playing?????? Qalandars lost because of Azaz Cheema" -- Shaheen has a niggle, and Carlos is playing ODIs against England

Haroon: "Imad Wasim should be out. When Fakhar hit the stumps in the last over his foot and were in the air." -- In the 19th over? Yeah, but no one appealed!

Salman: "@Sohail - On the contrary, I feel fakhar has done reasonably well. Sandeep should have bowled that over because it was crucial at that moment to take another wicket with livingstone and ingram bating. TBH fakhar didnt really had a decent score to defend"

Shahzil: "you win some you lose some but you have to admire the way haris rauf bowled the death overs"

Yasir Shah to Imad Wasim, 2 runs, Karachi Kings win! Length ball outside off, and the cut goes to point. They take the single, but overthrows from the fielder means Karachi Kings can run across for the second

END OF OVER:
19 | 6 Runs | KK: 132/5 (2 runs required from 6 balls, RR: 6.94, RRR: 2.00)

  • Iftikhar Ahmed33 (25b)
  • Haris Rauf4-0-23-1
  • Aizaz Cheema3-0-32-0

Abdullah Chatha: "@Ameer For God's Sake, this is Cheema's first game in PSL4. And if you have been following domestic cricket, he was the highest wicket-taker in QEA trophy 2018. First class cricket also matters. Not just PSL. Look what has happened to Pak test team when you induct T20 and ODI calibre players into it."

Shahzil: "you win some you lose some but you have to admire the way haris rauf bowled the death overs"

Haris Rauf to Imad Wasim, 1 run, full and wide outside off, and he cuts this away from his body to deep point

Haris Rauf to Iftikhar Ahmed, 1 run, full and wide outside off stump. Flat-batted to mid-on for a walking single
18.4

Haris Rauf to Iftikhar Ahmed, no run, low full toss on leg, and nudged to midwicket. They want a single, but quick fielding from Fakhar at midwicket ensures they don't. But wait! He gets a direct-hit at the bowler's end, and Imad Wasim hasn't grounded his bat, but no one appeals. Imad survives, when he should've been walking back to the pavilion. #brainfade

1
Haris Rauf to Imad Wasim, 1 run, yorker on off, and he inside-edges a shot onto his pads. Ball rolls away to cover as the batsman scamper across for one

Sohail: "Poor captaincy here. Sandeep should npt have bowled 7th over and cheema must have bowled more overs earlier with open options" -- yep, definitely something that Fakhar will learn

18.2
1
Haris Rauf to Iftikhar Ahmed, 1 run, full on middle, and once again, driven to long on

Six needed. Will they get it with a six?

18.1
2
Haris Rauf to Iftikhar Ahmed, 2 runs, overpitched on middle, and drilled down the ground to long-on. AB can't prevent the second run though

Ameer: "Aziaz cheema complains to not getting a chance in international cricket, of course your not gonna get selected if you give this type of performance"

17.6
1
Aizaz Cheema to Iftikhar Ahmed, 1 run, yorker on off, and toe-ended to cover. Cheema isn't happy. A massively expensive over

Aizaz Cheema to Iftikhar Ahmed, FOUR runs, slower ball, too wide outside off, and Cheema has been slapped to the point boundary! What a cameo this is

Aizaz Cheema to Imad Wasim, 1 run, length ball angling in, and tucked off his hips to square leg

Karachi need 16 off 17. Fans praying, not sure they're fans of which team. Aizaz around the wicket

Aizaz Cheema to Imad Wasim, FOUR runs, another one! That makes life easy for Karachi. Captain marvelous for Karachi doing the job. It was full on middle, and he comfortably clips a shot over to the square-leg boundary

free hit

Aizaz Cheema to Imad Wasim, (no ball) FOUR runs, oh dear, Aizaz! Chest-high full toss, wide outside off, and he guides a cut shot straight to the deep-point boundary. Not what LQ needed!

Murad: "Anyone smelling super over here? " -- *raises hand*

END OF OVER:

Haris Rauf to Imad Wasim, 1 run, length ball, just outside off, and angling away. Cut square - but with no real power - to point, who dives across the ground to stop the ball
