7.20pm What a knock from Misbah! What a partnership too, with Sammy. All those years of experience really counted in the end, and this win means Zalmi have qualified for the play-offs. Misbah finishes with 59 not out, having added a round 100 for the sixth wicket with Sammy, which is a new PSL record. Where did it all go wrong for Qalandars? They had the game in their hands when Zalmi were 20 for 5. For his game-changing knock, Misbah is the Player of the Match.
"To qualify for the play-offs was the first objective," says Zalmi captain Darren Sammy. "We've got one game left, hopefully we can seal that top two spot. We're united, we win together, we lose together."
Muneeb Saeed: "cometh the moment, cometh the man! What an innings from King Misbah! "
Abdul Khan: "Misbah ul haq loves the Abu Dhabi stadium. He has a great record and it would be a great way to end his time in Abu Dhabi. Love you King"
Abhijato: "The last over kept us on the edge of our seats. These veterans of the game have shown us what experience and temperament can help you achieve. It's been an insightful experience for both cricket fans and young players watching the game. The PSL is leaving us breathless with its production of one timeless thriller after another... Cheers to tapes for holding these creaky bones together, the PCB for organising this tournament, and Cricinfo for making cricket easier to follow and love!"
Ashish Poudel: "I am very unhappy for Shishir ... I think he will die single : ) "
And now ten Doeschate will go off. He's hurt his back and can't continue. Lamichhane will finish the over, Wahab Riaz on strike. Super over, anyone?
Misbah is on strike. Oh dear, and ten Doeschate seems to have hurt his back as well. Drama. Lamichhane to finish the over?? No, ten Doeschate is good to go
Five balls remain, Zalmi need five runs from them
Sujan from Nepal: "Shishir, please propose the girl if Sandy defends the match in last over. Sandy, please win this match for Shishir and us. " -- Sorry everyone, Ryan ten Doeschate will bowl the last over
Nadeem: "Amazing display of batting by these two 'seniors' and teaching the younger generations how to play in these conditions. "
This stand of 92 (so far) has resurrected Zalmi. They need just 13 from the last two overs now, a situation that was almost unthinkable when they were 20 for 5
Isaac Marshall: "There was huge pressure on Shehzad! If he didn't get a big score he was probably dropped for the rest of the PSL and maybe not retained for next year so it was a potentially career deciding knock. It's like comparing mandarins to tangerines."
Bilal Ahmed: "Misbah is oozing experience. He's an epitome of class and composure."
Aishf: "You have got to admire Zalmi's resilency. They never give up even if they are in tough situations. Perhaps the Qalandars can take a note from them seeing how they have thrown away easier matches."
Ali: "@Isaac, you cant compare apple with oranges. This is an innings under pressure and that innings was relatively pressure-less."
