    3.5 Tanvir has Amin holing out to Irfan at deep third man. Good length and put outside off, Amin aims a low-percentage slog across the line and only sends a thick outside edge to Irfan in the deep. Dolly catch 27/1
    6.2 Another short(ish) ball, another pull from Watson, this time he holes out to the man in the deep. It was in the slot for the pull, but Watson gets more height as opposed to distance. He finds Maqsood at the edge of the midwicket boundary. Pretty, little innings from Watson. Quetta needed more from him 46/3
    4.1 bowled'im. Another low-percentage slog, this time from the new man Rameez. He races down the track to his second ball but is nowhere close to the pitch. He, however, aims to whack it out of the ground. Instead, he watches Junaid leave his stumps in disarray 28/2
    14.5 Tanvir bounces out Sarfraz and collects back-to-back wickets. Head-high short ball on off stump, rushes Sarfraz into a hook. He top-edges a catch to deep square leg 101/7
    9.2 Sanga misses the stumping? He juggles, has a second bite at it, and then breaks the stumps. That Sanga had so much time to recover gives an idea of how far down the pitch had Rossouw come. He dares to use his feet, Malik pulls his length back and holds this back. The batsman slogs and misses, Sanga misses too, but snatches at the ball, and catches Rossouw short eventually 69/4
    12.4 Mahmudullah undone by the extra bounce. He rocks away outside the leg stump, this is short on middle, he only succeeds in feathering it behind to the keeper 92/5
    14.4 full and just a shade outside off, 110ks cutter from Tanvir. Nawaz checks his leg-side flick and spoons a catch to Pollard at wide long-on. Quetta losing their way in Sharjah 101/6
    15.2 Tahir knocks out the leg stump. The legspinner lures the batsman out of the crease, the ball dips and hits the stumps. The procession continues for Quetta. Poor shot selection from Hasan Khan 102/8
    not out
    15.3 Tahir is on a hat-trick on now. He sets off on a celebratory run. Catch him if you can. Quetta have lost four wickets in six balls. This was the wrong'un - fuller and breaks back in - the Big Duke has no clue about the variation. He plays outside the line for the legbreak. Gone 102/9
    15.4 Whoa! Imran Tahir claims a hat-trick in the PSL. Look at the celebrations. Back-to-back celebratory sprints for Tahir. Look at him go. He becomes the third player - after Amir and Junaid - to bag a hat-trick in the league. This was full and straight, the skidder, Rahat Ali plays back to it like most No.11s do. He is pinned in front of middle. Rahat reviews. Only he knows why. This was clattering into the middle stump. Quetta have been skittled for 102 102/10
