7.12pm Wow. Despite the start Fakhar gave them, Qalandars were nowhere in this game until the last five overs. Enter AB de Villiers. He cracked an unbeaten fifty, adding 98 in 7.3 overs with David Wiese, who contributed a no less important 45 not out that included the winnings runs, off the last ball! They shared in eight sixes, taking an incredible 73 from the last five. Is this the game of the tournament so far? After his three wickets, how important was that no-ball by Junaid Khan? A game changer, quite possibly.

AB de Villiers is called Player of the Match for his unbeaten fifty

"It got a bit closer than I hoped for at the end," says de Villiers. "I was fortunate in being able to take my time at the beginning of my innings. David Wiese takes a lot of the pressure off me, being a boundary hitter. I get very nervous. To the youngsters out there, my message is that it's ok to feel nervous in a situation like this, just take it one over at a time."

Usman yasir: "Dont score 200 or more in PSL, otherwise u cant defend this. 3 times 200 plus has been scored and chased successfully"

SADAF MEHDI: "Sharjah and Last ball six...Love story"

Zubair Islam: "Luqman.....enjoy the Biryani.... u won the bet"

Nadeem: "Wow - Wow - Wow!"

Christian to Wiese, SIX runs, forget about it! They needed three, and Wiese gives them six. The players charge out onto the field. The ball was full, but not full enough. Wiese got underneath it, and powered it all the way over the rope

Qalandars need 3 from the final delivery

Christian to de Villiers, 1 leg bye, through his legs! Cracking delivery. Christian delivers another pinpoint yorker, and AB can't get bat on it but they pinch a single as it flicks the pad on the way to the keeper
Christian to de Villiers, 2 runs, a full toss, and it's a rare mis-hit from de Villiers, who tries to slog sweep it away. The ball bounces in front of the midwicket fielder, and they sprint back for a second
Christian to Wiese, 1 run, slashed in the air, but again the ball lands short of the fielder, this time at long off

Jay Dee: "Dear Liam, please confirm they are with Cricket Ball i am doubtful that they are playing with Football." -- **squints** Yep, it's a cricket ball

Christian to de Villiers, 1 leg bye, yorker from Christian, a slower one, and de Villiers can't get it away but they take a run off his boot

Luqman Saleem: "LQ acting like Pakistan's national cricket team. One minute down, next minute up! One match ~70/10 next match successfully chasing 200. If LQ wins, I will win 2 plates of Biryani (bet with sister). Come on LQ! Come on my Biryani"

Christian to Wiese, 1 run, in the air, but safe! Wiese mistimes his swipe into the leg side, but hits it so badly it doesn't reach the boundary fielder

Ahmad H. Nadeem: "In my view, this is going to be the best match in PSL this season. From where LQ where, and when ABD arrived the whole scenario transfigured. Quite peculiar of a match" -- And it's not over yet. Last over coming up, and Qalandars need 9 from it. Wiese on strike. Odds on a super over? Dan Christian will bowl the over

Syed Murtaza Za: "Super over anyone ? "
