Mohammad Irfan412807.00124010
Mohammad Sami3.411925.18123000
19.1 to Usama Mir, taken by mid-off running back. It's a low full toss - Sami going for the yorker - Mir looks to clear Raees inside the circle, but is unable to. 125/9
19.4 to Usman Shinwari, middle stump lights up and Karachi have been bowled out inside their 20 overs. Yorker, thunders through the batsman's defences. 126/10
Rumman Raees402546.25131210
5.5 to CH Gayle, knocks him over! Looks for a repeat of the slog over square leg, but this time Rumman bowls it fuller, and pitches it outside off stump as well. In dragging the ball, Gayle gets an inside edge onto his stumps. The umpires check for the no-ball. It's all fine. 42/1
18.1 to Imad Wasim, caught on the midwicket boundary. It's Asif Ali again, taking it brilliantly. His work though is set up by a slower ball from Raees, on off stump. Wasim goes for the slog and he hits it high rather than long. Asif gets under the steepler and calmly takes it. Some needle between the bowler and the outgoing batsman. 122/6
18.2 to KA Pollard, two in two. Plants it full and outside off, Pollard drives it ever so elegantly to the fielder at long-off. Raees just stands and strokes his beard, like the schemer in an old-fashioned movie. 122/7
18.5 to Sohail Khan, off stump knocked back. Spectacular yorker. Sohail is deep in his crease, hitting all across the line and his end is swift. Raees bails out of his followthrough, spreads his arms, looks down and soaks it all in. 123/8
Shadab Khan402315.75113000
6.1 to Babar Azam, strikes first ball! It's the googly, and the batsman has no clue. Shadab wheels away in celebration, utterly chuffed with himself. And so he should be. He has deceived Babar to such an extent that he plays down the wrong line, defending, looking for the legbreak and is instead pinned low on the front pad right in front of middle stump. 42/2
Shane Watson402927.2563020
11.3 to KC Sangakkara, mistimes the pull. Goes after the short ball, but makes connection off the bottom part of the bat, the consequence of going through with the shot too early. A catch bobbles over to Misbah at midwicket. A fuming Sanga walks off. 76/3
15.1 to RS Bopara, fantastic catch and it's Shadab again. Hurtles in from the long-on boundary, dives forward, sticks out both hands and takes the ball only inches off the ground. The umpires are checking on the legality of it, but the soft signal is out. So a slow length ball, that ideally should have been crashed out of the city, is mistimed rather badly. Replays indicate it's a clean grab, with his fingers under the ball as he rolls over. 100/4

Mohammad Amir2.20733.00111000
2.3 to DR Smith, what a catch! Sanga flies. He simply flies to his right and takes a one-handed screamer. Smith goes for an on-the-up drive through cover, only offers a thick outside edge and after that - considering it is such a massive deflection - Sanga takes centre stage. Leaps to his right, takes it right on the webbing. Then he brings the left hand over to steady it on as he falls to the ground. Fantastic from the 39-year old. 12/1
2.6 to BJ Haddin, chops on! That's a double-wicket over. No room for the cut. The bounce is too much as well. Perhaps he should have gone up and over the slips. But instead he goes for the shot through point, gets an inside edge and onto middle. 12/2
15.2 to Rumman Raees, taken by long-on running to his left and Karachi are through. The defending champions Islamabad crash out, failing to chase 127. Length ball, skews it over the top and once the catch is taken, Amir borrows Raees' wicket celebration. Just standing there, tipping his head to the side and folding his arms.. 82/10
Usman Shinwari201105.5051000
Sohail Khan302117.00102110
14.4 to Amad Butt, plays all around the slower ball, it's back of the hand too, and the stumps are shattered. Just your average tail-ender hitting right across a striaght delivery. 82/9
Imad Wasim401834.50111010
8.1 to Misbah-ul-Haq, through him! What a strike. And it's the Wasim special. The arm ball, holding it with only the forefinger, aimed at a good length and skidding on. Misbah plays away from his body, offering a big gap between bat and pad and pays for it. 47/3
10.6 to SR Watson, cleans him up! Karachi keep fighting. And Watson, coming forward to drive with a closed face, isn't there quick enough. The ball sneaks under his bat, hits the pad and then onto the stumps. 61/4
12.2 to N Pooran, massive appeal for lbw and it's been given. Wasim is running through them. Is Pooran going to review? He really should because this may go down leg. And finally, they go for the check. It's the pace again, beating the batsman, especially with him playing a cross-bat shot over midwicket. No bat. Ball-tracking says it clips leg stump and the umpire's call of out is upheld. 70/6
Usama Mir402436.0082020
11.5 to Shadab Khan, caught at cover. Couldn't have picked out the fielder better. Innocuous delivery. Almost a half-volley really. Could have smashed it. But instead he pops it to Bopara. 69/5
13.3 to Asif Ali, that's gorgeous. The set batsman Asif tries to be a bit cheeky, going deep in his crease to try and late cut the ball, but he waits for too long. Basically guides the ball into the keeper's gloves, undone by a little more turn than he expects. Usama Mir sets off on a jaunt. Good work from Sanga too, to rise with the ball. 77/7
13.4 to Mohammad Sami, appeal for lbw and Usama is certain about it. The umpire isn't so gives the benefit of the doubt to the batsman. Asks the review. This is a really full delivery on off stump, Sami comes forward to block, and he does so down the wrong line. The bat is beside the ball with him playing for turn. There isn't much, and because of that it hits pad first. This could be gone. Ball-tracking gives up all reds and Sami is outta here. 77/8
