11.43pm Multan were too good again. They had enough firepower with their batting to carry them to an above-par score, and then they had the defensive bowling ability to cruise to a 19-run win to retain top spot. Sohail Tanvir led the Sultans, with figures of 3 for 14. Kieron Pollard also chipped in with three wickets. In the end, Peshawar just could not put together many substantial stands to challenge Multan's prowess. There were sparkling innings from Mohammad Hafeez and then Liam Dawson, but it was nowhere near enough eventually.

Pollard to Wahab Riaz, SIX runs

smashed for six to finish, a slower ball outside off, Riaz charges at the bowler and pummels the ball over long-on. Multan win by 19 runs, to keep their spot at the top of the PSL points table.

Pollard to Hafeez, OUT

another slower ball, another wicket. Goes wide of the crease, and bowls a really slow, full delivery outside off. Hafeez looks to heave that away but all he can manage is a leading edge, lobs to Sangakkara.

Mohammad Hafeez c †Sangakkara b Pollard 56 (41b 5x4 2x6) SR: 136.58
Pollard to Wahab Riaz, 1 bye

a bye, a slower delivery outside off, goes past Wahab, but Hafeez wants the strike.

Pollard to Hafeez, 1 run

another slower ball outside off, inside-edged away to deep square leg.

Pollard to Hasan Ali, OUT

another wide slower ball outside off, Hasan Ali clears his front leg and toe-ends a heave to deep midwicket. He had to drag that shot, which is why there was no timing.

Hasan Ali c Ahmed Shehzad b Pollard 3 (4b 0x4 0x6) SR: 75
Pollard to Hasan Ali, 2 runs

another slower ball outside off, swatted away with awful timing towards long-on. Just the couple.

Pollard to Hasan Ali, 1 wide

a slower delivery outside off, not inside the tramline, wide called

31 off 6. Spectators are streaming out to avoid the chaos later, we've all been there. Pollard will finish.

Tanvir to Hafeez, no run

that is surely the end of the game. A back of a length delivery outside off, Hafeez too swings and misses.

Shabaib Abdulla: "Sammy here would have made a big difference "

Tanvir to Hasan Ali, 1 run

an excellent yorker outside off, not much Hasan can do but bunt to mid-off

Tanvir to Hasan Ali, no run

full and wide outside off, Hasan swings, Hasan misses.

Tanvir to Hammad, OUT

edged and gone! A full delivery is angled away outside off, Azam looks to heave the ball in the opposite direction, all he manages is a thin outside edge to Sangakkara.

Hammad Azam c †Sangakkara b Sohail Tanvir 0 (1b 0x4 0x6) SR: 0
Tanvir to Hafeez, 1 run

short and wide outside off, carved to backward point for a single

Tanvir to Dawson, OUT

is that the game? Should be. A full, wide delivery outside off. All Dawson can do is slice the ball. Bravo runs in from the sweeper cover boundary and takes a low catch. Could not get enough timing or power behind the stroke.

Liam Dawson c Bravo b Sohail Tanvir 32 (17b 0x4 3x6) SR: 188.23

33 off 12. Peshawar need a 20-run over.
