Fall of wickets: 1-46 (Jean-Paul Duminy, 4.6 ov), 2-91 (Luke Ronchi, 10.5 ov), 3-126 (Alex Hales, 14.4 ov), 4-164 (Hussain Talat, 18.2 ov)
10.5 to L Ronchi, the wrong'un does the trick! Full just outside off, but spins sharply inwards. Ronchi's down on one knee, trying to slog sweep, but the ball goes between bat and pad, and breaks off stump. Tahir's running away. 91/2
14.4 to AD Hales, cut, but straight to cover! Sohaib the man there. Good length outside off, and he tries to muscle this towards the on side. As easy as ABC for the fielder. A great first outing for Hales in PSL 2018. 126/3
18.2 to Hussain Talat, back of a length on middle stump, flat batted down the ground, but straight to long on. Pollard the man there, and it's a regulation catch for the big man. Muscled this over the bowler, but didn't have the elevation on this occasion. 164/4

Fall of wickets: 1-2 (Kumar Sangakkara, 0.4 ov), 2-2 (Saif Badar, 0.5 ov), 3-20 (Ahmed Shehzad, 4.2 ov), 4-20 (Sohaib Maqsood, 5.1 ov), 5-50 (Shoaib Malik, 9.5 ov), 6-90 (Ross Whiteley, 13.6 ov), 7-118 (Sohail Tanvir, 15.5 ov), 8-142 (Kieron Pollard, 17.4 ov), 9-148 (Umar Gul, 18.5 ov), 10-152 (Mohammad Irfan, 19.1 ov)
0.4 to KC Sangakkara, he's hit this right down the throat of deep midwicket. Oh, dear. Samit and Alex, the Nottingamshire boys, have combined to remove the in-form legend. Sanga made room and moved to the leg side, Samit followed him, he lofted it nicely but couldn't clear the bigger boundary. Big strike first up.. 2/1
0.5 to Saif Badar, two in two, and Samit does a Tahir as he takes off on a celebratory run. Saif Badar is out plumb in front. He had a chat with Shehzad regarding a review, but they do the right thing in the end. Absolutely plumb! This drifted in from around the stumps and skidded through, Badar looks to work this towards midwicket, misses it altogether. Aleem Dar had no doubts whatsoever.. 2/2
17.4 to KA Pollard, flicked straight to Hales at deep square leg. Sami went full and straight on leg stump, Pollard didn't get enough power or elevation. Is that the end now for Multan? Islamabad can breathe. 142/8
4.2 to Ahmed Shehzad, slices this straight to third man. This is as easy as catches come. Shehzad plays a very poor stroke under the circumstances. Wanted to back away and go over cover but couldn't get any timing behind that. The bat face turned and he ended up spooning the simplest of catches. Not the kind of strokes or shot selection you expect from a player of Shehzad's ability. Time and again, he's been a disappointment this season. Multan slide further.. 20/3
18.5 to Umar Gul, mistimed slog that is easily taken at deep midwicket. It's falling apart now. Gul got this low on the bat as he swung through. 148/9
5.1 to Sohaib Maqsood, this is a sensational catch at mid-on. Maqsood shapes to pull but ends up fetching it from way outside off, because of which there's no timing. This still had to be taken. Hales timed his jump to perfection and used his height to good effect to pull off that stunner.. 20/4
19.1 to Mohammad Irfan, right into the blockhole and the middle pole takes a walk as he swings and misses. Islamabad United are through to the playoffs . 152/10
9.5 to Shoaib Malik, beaten by one that keeps low. This was the quicker one that drifted into middle, Malik looked to pull but is beaten by one that skids through. Big wicket. Got to wonder if that shuts out Multan's flame as far as this game's concerned. 50/5
13.6 to RA Whiteley, deceived in flight as he looks to hit this over the sightscreen, ends up skying this to JP, who calls for it, settles underneath it and takes it with his fingers pointing upwards. Brave from Shadab to toss it up, rewarded for it too.. 90/6
