11.38pm Tell you what, that margin of defeat does not reflect the kind of dominance that Islamabad asserted. It was a pristine display of spin bowling from Islamabad - among the best you'll see in T20 cricket. There was grip, turn, flight, dip, loop - just everything you want to see from a spinner. Rare is the T20 that's dominated so much by the spinners but this was that kind of game. But full credit to Peshawar's lower order for fighting until the end. They largely reduced the margin of defeat and these kind of runs are really helpful when it comes down to decimal points and net run rate in the race to the playoffs. Islamabad rise to the top of the table with this win.
Shernawaz: "What a beautiful points table, 10, 9,8,7,6 and lahore qalandars."

Akhtar Khan: "Really tough competition in PSL. This moment up and next moment down. All teams fighting for a spot in top 4."
This is now the highest ninth-wicket partnership in PSL
