Full commentary

11:30pm: Phew, second thriller of the day! Quetta clinch this and stay unbeaten in the tournament.

Nawaz is the Man of the Match: It is a big event, I just stuck to the basics. I was not thinking about turning the ball, I wanted to bowl in good lines and lengths. I will work on my batting and learn from my mistakes.

Afridi: People are drawn to matches like this. The bowling was very good from Quetta.

Sarfraz: It was tight match, two good teams played it. We have bonded and gelled well. Anwar and Chigumbura did well and won the match for us. I believed in them.

That is all we have for you. We will be back tomorrow. Goodbye for now

Hassan: "Spent whole day chewing my nails. What a superb piece of cricket"

Aizaz Shah: "Probably the best day of PSL... Two back to back thrillers!!! can't hope for anything better for a sunday :D"

Khurram: "Absolutely a nail-biting finish. Made my day!!"

Salman: "That 6 off Tait's last ball has turned it on its head"

Muhammad Sufyan: "That was the Power of SIir Viv Richards!! He has willed Quetta to victory"

aadil140: "Peshawar Zalmi fought really hard today. They kept hitting back."
