11.50pm Wow, what a nail-biter that was. Sensational stuff this. Mohammad Nabi has helped chase 15 off the last over. Quetta chase down 202 and complete an awesome victory, a win that surely will boost their confidence even more. I wonder if Azhar could have given the last over to the medium-pacer of Delport, all easy in hindsight though. The match looked dead after 18 overs, but Nabi kept it alive with successive boundaries. In the end, this could be a catastrophic loss for Lahore. Karachi have to win their game tomorrow to go through and keep Lahore out of the playoffs.

Bismillah Khan is the Man of the Match: "They gave me a chance and I'm happy for that, the staff gave me a lot of confidence. the cricket is easy, it is the pressure at this level. You handle the pressure well, you'll be successful."

SabawoonSalik: "Great to see Nabi scoring some runs a real booster for the play-offs"

Zohaib Khan to Mohammad Nabi, FOUR runs, it has gone for four and Nabi has done it for his side. What drama here. Very full and wide outside off, Nabi scythes it away over point. What a game this has been. Zohaib chose to bowl it full and wide, was that the wisest choice? Nabi got under it and found the gap. Bravo, it seemed, ran around and fumbled at the boundary.

3 off 1.

Zohaib Khan to Zulfiqar Babar, 1 run, full toss is drilled back to Zohaib who drops a really hard chance. They scamper one as well. He could have stopped the single. If he had taken it, Nabi would not be on strike.

Right then, the game right here. This is the ball. The all-important penultimate ball. A wicket?

Zohaib Khan to Mohammad Nabi, 1 run, yorker outside off, a thick inside edge goes to short fine leg for one. Nabi is off strike

A conference. Coming over the wickets is an option. Lots of hand movement from Azhar. Won't matter if Nabi connects.

Zohaib Khan to Mohammad Nabi, SIX runs, that is six. Short outside off, Nabi stays back and whacks it. Long over the fence. Very predictable stuff.

The bowler will have to take a punt, be brave and slow one up outside off.

Zohaib Khan to Mohammad Nabi, FOUR runs, that will be four. Anticipating that length, gets back in the crease and drills it back to the long-on fence. Great shot.

15 off 5. If the yorker length is missed, ....

Zohaib Khan to Mohammad Nabi, no run, yorker on off, drilled back to the bowler. Zohaib does well. Picks up and removes the stumps, the non-striker is back but.

Not impossible. 15 off 6. They don't have a front-line bowler to bowl. Nabi is key. Zohaib Khan has been given the ball. It is spin. There may be a bit of dew too.
