Mohammad Irfan402526.25122100
0.3 to Bismillah Khan, Irfan has struck, Bismillah was squared up completely and the finger has gone up but the batsman looks unhappy! Much shorter ball on leg stump and massive swing and bounce, Bismillah closed the face of the bat towards the leg side and it looked like the ball deviated so much that the keeper had to dive in front of first slip to take the catch. Haddin it was. 0/1
17.4 to Sarfraz Ahmed, angled in on off, this is a slower one. Good change-up ball. Sarfraz goes for a big leg-side hoick. He can only top-edge into the lap of Smith at short third man. Dolly catch. Islamabad have pulled things back nicely. 153/6
Imran Khalid302608.6644000
Samuel Badree403819.5085100
15.4 to Mohammad Nawaz, take that for a riposte. This was a poor shot, though. This was neither too short nor too wide to cut. Skids off the surface on middle, Nawaz skips back for a cut, does not lay bat on ball. He hears the death rattle. 135/4
Mohammad Sami403117.7591200
16.3 to Ahmed Shehzad, and the show is over! Length and outside off, Shehzad premeditates as he shuffles across off. He can only lap-scoop it into the hands of short fine leg. Sami's slower ball gets Shehzad. 147/5
Andre Russell403639.0093200
5.1 to KP Pietersen, and he strikes first ball, the credit should go to the fielder though - Asif Ali! KP looked to heave the ball hard towards the cow corner but he didn't middle it and Asif ran to his right from deep square leg to just about get his fingers under the dipping ball. Great catch!. 33/2
14.3 to KC Sangakkara, Khalid makes no mistake, he takes it at long-on now. Sanga steps out and backs away for a lofted hit. He can only drag this short ball from outside off to long-on. This may have stopped on the batsman as well. 120/3
19.4 to Anwar Ali, struck firmly but Khalid runs to his left from deep cover and snaps it up. Dug in short and outside off, Anwar stepped away and slapped it to Khalid. Hit-and-miss innings comes to an end. 168/7

Anwar Ali2.4029110.8763200
18.2 to Khalid Latif, two runs to go and Khalid Latif top-edges a short ball to short fine leg for an easy catch. 173/4
Nathan McCullum302418.0083100
5.4 to Sharjeel Khan, Sharjeel steps out, N-Mac did well to loop it up and hold this one back. Sharjeel swings and misses. The bowler hits the leg stump. First wicket in the PSL for him. Sharjeel falls short of a century by 87 runs. 54/1
Aizaz Cheema403418.5075000
16.1 to AD Russell, inside edge onto the stumps, Russell is gone! He made some room and the ball angled, he slogged and the ball crashed into the stumps after an edge. 147/3
Zulfiqar Babar4041110.2571400
15.3 to DR Smith, oh my, Smith has given it away! It was outside off and turning away a lot, Smith didn't get anywhere close to the pitch of the ball and only slogged to hand a top edge into the off side. Easy catch for KP at backward point. 139/2
