low full toss outside off, gets low and lifts it classily over the infield and it crosses the boundary on the bounce...and that's it. They fall short by seven runs. Great over by Irfan Jr.
They threw it away, didn't they? Sanga and Malik will have more thoughts per second on the ground than anyone else on it. They set the platform and threw it away. Pollard didn't have a clue against Narine and Bopara...well, you wonder if he's the man to be that low. Lahore looked out of it after Yasir took a battering and they gave away crucial extras too, but held on in the end and were around when a small opening appeared. Good victory.
Fakhar Zaman is the Man of the Match.
Thanks for joining us, folks. I'll leave you with some of your own thoughts. Catch you later.
Haroon: "Malik gifted the game to Qalandars. There was no need for that kind of wild swing. He could've brought it down to 20 off 10 and game on!"
Kapil: "Malik and Sanga both just relaxed after that Yasir's over and I remember Malik played out Irfan Jr's over causally instead of attacking the inexperienced bowler. Two full tosses which could have got them two boundaries and there lies the difference in who won and lost. And Bopara just isn't good enough at No.7. Can't hit the ball cleanly right away. He should bat ahead of Pollard "
D.S.A: "The batting order for Karachi has been baffling. It has taken 3 matches for Sangakkara to put himself at 3 (has he any success in his career at 3, by any chance...), and at least 4 matches to have last year's best player, Bopara, to bat at 4 (assuming they realise this mistake by game 4). Despite his phenomenal season, Bopara has batted at 6, 7 and now 6 again this season. Can someone explain, because I can't?"
mazhar shehzaad: "Gayle's performance probably the difference between the two sides. "
Saim Polani: "After the off-field troubles in the last week, this match has played the perfect role in rechanging the spirits of PSL fans!!"
but it's all normalcy for us! Does what he's supposed to. Full, fast, straight. Timber. Goes under Sohail's slog and sounds sweet - depending on if you're a bowler or not - as it strikes the stumps
12 off 2...stranger things have happened...
yorker outside off, jams it straight to cover
another yorker outside off, clears the front leg, slices it between point and short third man
in the blockhole outside off, Amir can't do anything at this and it's just a token swipe at it as he's beaten
thigh-high full toss, can only turn it to deep square leg. Wants a free-hit for this, but it wasn't high enough
18 off the last over and it looks like Irfan Jr. will bowl this one...yep. It's him. McCullum changing the field around frantically. Get the feeling someone is going to be booked for slow over rate this evening...
Tanvir bowls another bad ball, and this time he's punished. Length ball at middle stump, lifted on the up easily over his head
24 off 7 as Amir walks in
full on the pads, not the best of deliveries, but he's lift this with the angle and straight to deep square. He'll be thinking he could've put that away for runs.
yorker outside off, carved to covers who has a shy and misses by a mile, but there's no chance of a second
yorker at middle, jams it out to long-on's right and the fielder has to scramble quickly to cut it off
around the wicket
clubbed! length ball on the pads, he hangs back and gets it right off the middle as he lifts it over deep square
Sohail is here, 33 off 11
slower ball, back of a length outside off, goes for the pull, catches it on the hips and it rolls to the keeper. They've tried to sneak in a single, but the keeper gets a direct hit and there's no need for a review
UZ: "2 overs left and Pakistan's best slogger is yet to bat. Sohail Khan should've came ahead of Imad"
length ball angled across the left hander, clears the front foot and slams it to mid-off's left
high full toss outside off, swings at it, misses...it's above the waist and we're going to have a free hit
back of a length outside off, goes for the big pull shot, gets it at the toe and and it flies towards Sohail Tanvir and lands in front of him
full outside off, expansive drive, but it hits the bottom and bobbles harmlessly towards extra cover
full at middle stump, tries to whip this into the leg side, inside edge onto pad and it lands in front of the bowler
full outside off, wild heave at it, inside half of the bat, straight to deep midwicket
back of a length, comes in and goes under his attempted slog, just above the stumps
41 off 18. Here's Bilawal
full outside off, driven to sweeper cover
