Shaheen Afridi's 5 for 4 ends Lahore's losing streak

A day after captain Brendon McCullum criticised his team's bowling performance, 17-year old left-arm pacer Shaheen Afridi responded with a five-wicket haul to help Lahore Qalandars register their first win of the tournament

Scorecard summary
Multan Sultans114/10(19.4 overs)
Lahore Qalandars115/4(18.4 overs)

7pm After offering to step down as captain yesterday night, McCullum has steered a rickety chase to help Lahore break their duck. The real star of the night, though, is 17-year-old Shaheen Afridi who ended with stunning figures of 5 for 4 - among the most economical five-fors in T20 history. That's a wrap of this match. Thanks for tuning in. Goodbye and good night for now
