Ronchi, and later Samit Patel, ensured this win didn't just bring two points, but also a statement of real intent from the two-time champions

11.03pm Islamabad United move up to second place with their third win, which was built around a solid all-round bowling performance first up (headlined by Faheem Ashraf's 3 for 26) and finished off by Luke Ronchi's 67 not out, as well as Samit Patel's quickfire 45. Ronchi is Player of the Match for his innings. I hope you've enjoyed the coverage. Until next time, goodbye!

Isaac Marshall: "Hahahaha, maybe next time for Zia"

Abhijato: "It's been a mixed day for the Crystal Ball, but it's ending predictions about that mini crisis in the middle satisfies me! It's been another pleasent day of cricket, Mr Brickhill!"

Faisal: "The KING is back.Luke Ronchi is topping the batting chart again."
