Match Centre

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."

Wahab Riaz to Anwar Ali, 4 leg byes, deflected between slip and keeper. Anwar finds the gap and finishes it off for Quetta. Short ball, possibly the slower one. Anwar throws his bat at it, and tickles it to the third-man fence

One needed off the last ball. Yep, a slip in place

Salman: "Place a slip Afridi"

Wahab Riaz to Chigumbura, 1 run, back of a length and into the pads, squirted to leg

Wahab Riaz to Chigumbura, FOUR runs, dug in short on middle, sits up. Chigu sends it clattering over midwicket; one-bounce four. He went deep in the crease and nailed it. Chigu has Viv Richards on his feet with his hands aloft
Wahab Riaz to Chigumbura, 1 wide, slower bouncer, Wahab is showing his range. Chigu can't touch it. Sails over to the keeper. Wide
