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"
3 off 1.
Right then, the game right here. This is the ball. The all-important penultimate ball. A wicket?
A conference. Coming over the wickets is an option. Lots of hand movement from Azhar. Won't matter if Nabi connects.
The bowler will have to take a punt, be brave and slow one up outside off.
15 off 5. If the yorker length is missed, ....
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.
Rahat : "what a nail biter"
Awais: "No not again.. another twist"
A boundary here changes things, but then again, so does a wicket.
Uzair: "One more six and the game is changed again."
Around the wicket
Bravo to bowl the penultimate over. One of the spinners or Delport will have to bowl the last.
Mustafa: "Fair play award goes to Ehsan Adil"
Mohammad Nawaz has come out.
