Hodge heroics stuns Karachi Kings
Brad Hodge hit six fours and as many sixes in his unbeaten 45-ball 85 as Peshawar recovered from 69 for 4 in 11.5 overs to overhaul Karachi's 152 for 7 with nine balls to spare
6.50pm Peshawar have completed a fantastic chase. Brad Hodge kept his composure despite wickets falling all around him, and even with the required rate climbing, he stayed calm. Took the opportunities when he was presented with them and punished the bad bowling. Great chase that. Karachi's bowlers were really good throughout the first few overs but struggled to keep Hodge down. Karachi are therefore, entirely dependent on the result of the evening match. If Lahore win, they go through. And if Lahore lose, Karachi go through. Sets it up beautifully for the evening game.
Brad Hodge is the Man of the Match: "Boom Boom had some instructions for me to get myself in, with playoffs coming up."
M. Scharique: "One more possibility. If it is a washout, Lahore Qalandars will go through. "
What an innings this has been from Brad Hodge.
Adeel Ashraf: "Hodge is like a fine wine. He get better with age. The best is yet to come"
Run-a-ball required from here. Wonder why Bopara was not used. Saw those offcutters and legcutters hard to get away in the first innings. Here he is
Khawaja Fahad: "You cannot compare Husseys innings with this or any that have passed.Australia needed 48 off 18 with four wickets in hand and he won it with a ball to spare.That is the greatest T20 innings of all time ."
