Sohail Khan4045211.25105310
16.2 to Imad Wasim, beautifully bowled, the back of the hand slower ball down leg, it doesn't get to Imad. He waits and waits before making contact, the ball lobs back to Sohail's left in his follow-through. He holds on, which is followed by a stare at Karachi's captain. 110/6
16.4 to Shahid Afridi, 6 off 2! That's Afridi's batting contribution this game. Another short ball, the change in length hurries Afridi. He also has to drag this from wide outside off, so there isn't great timing. It takes the leading edge, high in the air, and into the hands of deep square leg.. 117/7
Shaheen Shah Afridi3039013.0061410
Yasir Shah402526.2582000
3.6 to JL Denly, quicker ball, and it's a skyer. Taken! Yasir Shah's over the moon. A fast, half-tracker on leg stump, and Denly tries to lift it over square leg. Deceived by the extra pace and top edged. Smart take from the fielder running from short fine leg. 36/1
12.5 to CA Ingram, a volleyball catch. But excellently done by Shaheen Afridi and Umar Akmal. The legbreak on middle and leg, Ingram gets underneath the length, nails his sweep, but gets far more elevation than distance. Shaheen sets himself up at deep midwicket, but doesn't realise he has far more time and room than he thinks. He, to his credit, keeps his eyes on the ball, backtracks slightly (with a metre of ground behind him), and volleys - like a swat - the ball towards Akmal, who has ran towards him from long-on. Excellent relay catch. One terrific catch from Shahid this tournament, one terrific assist from Shaheen.. 86/4
Mustafizur Rahman412215.50132030
4.1 to Babar Azam, gone first ball! Full on middle stump and straightens. Babar is trapped right in front of the wicket. He's not going to review this. Plumb. Late movement gets him for a golden duck. 36/2
Sunil Narine401824.50131000
5.3 to Khurram Manzoor, holes out to wide mid on! That's ten balls, no runs, and three wickets now. Good length outside off, and turns inwards. Tries to slog, but off the bat's top half. Doesn't even clear the infield. Magical from Narine. 36/3
13.3 to Mohammad Rizwan, taken? Yes, says McCullum. Another carrom ball outside off, it bounces and spins away, Rizwan guides the ball to slip off the open face. McCullum stays low and takes a good, low catch with both hands. But the umpires just want confirmation from the TV umpire. The soft signal is out. McCullum gets his hands underneath the ball, but is there some part of the ball touching the ground. These are those iffy ones, but the TV umpire says not enough evidence to overturn that.. 90/5

BOWLINGOMRWECON0s4s6sWDNB
Usman Shinwari402636.50121201
0.2 to SP Narine, Is that edged? Narine goes for a golden duck. Good length on off stump and Narine backs away to slap this to cover. Goes for a big heave and the ball takes the outside edge. The pinch-hit tactic does not work out tonight. 1/1
14.3 to Agha Salman, another catch, this time he hasn't overstepped! It's that angle again, back of a length around middle and leg, it gets big on Salman as he looks to pull. He cannot control the pull, the ball takes the top edge and travels all the way to Mills at fine leg. Fine comeback in this over.. 114/6
17.4 to Shaheen Shah Afridi, caught and bowled! Shaheen falls for 1 off 5. A back of a length delivery around middle, the ball hurries Shaheen as he tries to pull, the ball takes the splice of the bat, back towards Usman, who runs back and takes a good catch.. 126/9
Tymal Mills3.303329.42113123
16.5 to Yasir Shah, 140 kph, bowled! Full around off, Yasir clears his front leg, looking to mow this to midwicket. No contact with the bat, but the ball hits the top of off. More trouble for Lahore.. 124/8
18.3 to Mustafizur Rahman, that's the game! Karachi Kings win by 27 runs. Another slower ball, back of the hand, Mustafizur has no idea of what's coming. He is through his shot too early, the ball lobs back towards Mills off the splice of the bat. And another defeat for Lahore.. 132/10
Imad Wasim402516.2582010
7.1 to BB McCullum, given lbw! Is McCullum reviewing? Yes, he is. It's the reverse sweep once again that causes the batsman's downfall. Full just outside off as BMac misses his shot. The ball angled oh-so-slightly extra this time and he's been deceived by the line. Hits his back leg, but no contact off the gloves. Replays show it's hitting middle stump. McCullum's got to go. 72/3
Mohammad Irfan201718.5053001
15.3 to D Ramdin, wooooow! What a stunner that is, Joe Denly. That is one of the best catches I've seen, ever! That is an amazing catch. Short and wide from Irfan, a terrible delivery. Ramdin cuts fiercely towards backward point. Denly dives to his right, he tries to reach the ball with both hands, but at some point during his dive (with both feet off the air), he realises he can't get there, so he goes with one. And holds on with one hand. That ball was travelling too. A fraction of a second to react but there was so much thinking to do in that.. 117/7
Shahid Afridi401934.75122000
6.4 to Fakhar Zaman, acrobatic from Bopara! Full on leg stump and Fakhar tries to reverse sweep. It's well slapped actually, but Bopara - at point - moves three steps to his right and completes a low catch with his cupped hands. Afridi brings out the starman. 70/2
8.2 to Umar Akmal, Afridi wins the battle! And what a witty way to get the wicket. He knows Umar Akmal would come down the ground, and Afridi slows this up. Pushes it wide outside off, and Akmal can't get to it. He's halfway down the pitch and the keeper has no trouble dislodging the bails. Is this another familiar Qalandars collapse?. 81/4
10.1 to Sohail Akhtar, taken on the long-off boundary! Lahore are five down and sinking. Some flight from Afridi, outside off, Sohail can't help himself from swinging, hits it with bad timing and picks out mid-off, running in. Denly ran in and took a good, low catch.. 91/5
