0.2 to JJ Roy, Squealing for an LBW and given! That looked very close, lobbed up on a length, drifting towards middle and rapping Roy's pads, ultraedge show no deflection, pitching outside off, impact is in line and wickets hitting so early success for Karachi Kings! Spot-on from Imad and Roy has to go back in the hut. 0/1
0.5 to Abdul Bangalzai, Stumped! Brilliant work from Wade who removed the bails in a flash and another one bites the dust, what an over it is turning out to be for Karachi Kings, Bangalzai also goes without troubling the scorers, he was a bit too early into the shot and the ball was turning in from outside off as he flays his hands away from the line. 0/2
2.3 to Umar Akmal, Wrecks the stumps! That's a tremendous riposte from Imad as he pitches this on a length and it came back viciously, Umar tried to cut that away but was nowhere near the line of the ball, Imad picks up his third.. 13/3
6.1 to Sarfaraz Ahmed, Aamer gets the big fish! Sarfaraz Ahmed saw the shorter one and threw the kitchen sink at it, mistimes his pull straight into the hands of the fielder at short midwicket, he is already walking off and the ball almost popped out of Niazi's hands but he recovered well and gobbled it up on the third attempt. Despair in Quetta's dug-out, ecstasy in the other camp. 23/4
19.1 to Mohammad Nawaz, Snaffled by Niazi at long-on! He had to go after every delivery, goes for the heave over long on, gets the elevation but not the distance on this occasion.. 156/6
19.6 to MJ Guptill, Slogged into the sky - straight to long-off - he was looking to bludgeon the ball into the stands as he has done so many times, but he got slightly under it, hands a simple catch to Niazi - who has been a livewire in the field tonight - and Quetta end up with 168 on the board. 168/7
14.5 to Iftikhar Ahmed, Miscues a skier! Banged in short and he goes for the pull, didn't get all of it, he got himself into a tangle and couldn't get much power behind the shot and it's an easy catch for Imran Tahir at deep square, cool as a cucumber. 92/5

TOTAL20 Ov (RR: 8.10)162/5
Fall of wickets: 1-10 (Sharjeel Khan, 1.4 ov), 2-25 (Haider Ali, 2.6 ov), 3-35 (James Vince, 4.2 ov), 4-70 (Matthew Wade, 10.2 ov), 5-76 (Imad Wasim, 10.6 ov) • DRS
4.2 to JM Vince, Gottim! Naseem bowls a supernova on a length and it jagged back viciously and is through his defence, zingers are lit up! It's game on! That's a crucial breakthrough for Quetta. It was just too good for in-form Vince. 35/3
1.4 to Sharjeel Khan, Length ball on fifth stump, goes to cut, thick edge through to Sarfaraz and he clings on! That's a stunning catch from the captain and this is exactly Quetta required. Nawaz gets an early breakthrough. 10/1
2.6 to Haider Ali, Tossed up a delicious legbreak, he isn't afraid to give it flight and lured him into a big shot, he was nowhere the pitch of the ball and it goes through the gate. Qais has the last laugh!. 25/2
10.2 to MS Wade, Sounds the death rattle! Dug in with searing pace and on a nagging line outside off, Wade rocks back to pull and drags it on! Excellent move from Sarfaraz to bring Hasnain back into the attack, he gets the prized scalp. This is a very timely wicket for Quetta. 70/4
10.6 to Imad Wasim, Adjudged caught behind! He was strangled down the leg side, gloved it through to the keeper and Imad is not reviewing. Hasnain has changed the complexion of this game, he has bowled with a lot of venom here and gets second wicket in this over. What a turnaround!. 76/5
