12:08am That's all from our coverage tonight. See you soon!

McCullum: Winning meansa lot, absolutely. It hasn't been out best tournament but the last three games have gone well and it's a pleasure to be part of this unit that's trying very hard. We've lost a few critical moments early on and we could've probably won two or three more. But now that the pressure's gone, we've probably find the intensity and team connections. Shaheen - I like him a lot! He's got an immense amount of talent and a good strong head on his shoulders. I'm sure he's gonna be a superstar.

Sarfraz: We have discussed the scenarios for qualification but Zaman played an incredible innings. The bowling was alright, but Zaman was flawless. He hit very cleanly. His batting was good, more than our bowling being bad.

Fakhar: Been trying for a while to play a long innings. Luck was on my side today and I used my start. Early on our combination wasn't setting in and our middle order wasn't in form. So we wanted to make sure someone from the top batted well. I've given myself more time these days and then I play my game.

Fakhar Zaman is the Man of the Match.

11:51pm Third win for Lahore. Handshakes all around...except when Sohail comes across Yasir. A complete snub. A bit of clowning, but it's a solid win. They've done well to resist two blitzkriegs, one front Roy, one from Rossouw to manage a decent margin in the end. Fakhar Zaman, of course, set it all up for them. The spinners then strangled Quetta in the middle.

Shaheen Shah Afridi to Nawaz, 1 run

length ball in at off stump. Swings across the line and gets an inside edge that dribbles to deep square's left

Goes over the wicket

Shaheen Shah Afridi to Sarfaraz, 1 run

short of a length and into the body. A pull off the top part of the bat, to deep midwicket's left

Shaheen Shah Afridi to Nawaz, 1 run

low full toss just outside off, driven down to long-off off the toe-end

SK Pamiri: "Yasir vs Sohail spat in PSL reminds me of Harbhajan vs Ambati Rayudu in IPL"

Shaheen Shah Afridi to Nawaz, SIX runs

full ball just outside off, gets deep in the crease and creams this to the extra cover boundary. Stunning hit.

Jahangir: "Very embarrassing to watch that sohail act. Lost my respect. He needs to b reprimanded."

Shaheen Shah Afridi to Nawaz, no run

length ball on middle stump, mistimed slog back at the bowler who sticks out his hand to stop it

Salman khan: "Absolutely disgusting by Sohail, you can't disrespect your teammates like that. "

Shaheen Shah Afridi to Nawaz, no run

lbw given and Nawaz reviews. It's a full ball from around the wicket, strikes him plumb in front of middle as he looks to slog. There's no edge on it either. This will come down to whether it pitched in didn't. Marginally outside leg stump. He survives

Sohail Khan 4-0-30-0
Shaheen Shah Afridi 3-0-28-1

A superb over from Sohail, poor behavious notwithstanding. Yasir was rightfully ticked off and still has a stern look. Lets hope they work that out...

Sohail Khan to Nawaz, 1 run

yorker at leg stump. Can't do more than jam this out to long-on

Sohail Khan to Sarfaraz, 1 run

a sitter is put down at deep square. Watch your back Salman, Sohail's not a happy man at the moment. Short ball in at the hips and he swings a feeble pull, straight to the fielder, who looks like he's taken his eyes off it at the last moment

Sohail Khan to Nawaz, 1 bye

slower ball, back of a length outside off. Swings across the line and is beaten. Lands awkwardly in front of the keeper and he fumbles it

Bit of drama going on here. Sohail trying to get Yasir Shah's attention at deep backward square is annoyed and chucks the ball at him. The veteran isn't happy at all. Childish...

Sohail Khan to Sarfaraz, 1 run

full and swung in at leg stump. Swings across the line again to Zaman's right at deep midwicket. Not enough power on it

Sohail Khan to Nawaz, 1 run

back of a length slower ball just outside off, sliced to long-off

Sohail Khan to Sarfaraz, 1 run

full and in at leg stump. Swings it away off his toes and Zaman does brilliantly at deep midwicket to leap and stop this to his right. And he keeps it to one as well

Sohail Khan to Sarfaraz, 1 wide

digs a slower bouncer in but it's too short. He looks to hook but it's too high

The all important 19th over. Can Sohail give Shaheen a healthy amount to defend?

Obaid khan: "I am smelling a thriller..."

Shaheen Shah Afridi to Sarfaraz, 1 run

full on leg stump, backs away and drills it to long-on

Shaheen Shah Afridi to Nawaz, 1 run

full outside off, sliced to third man's left

Shaheen Shah Afridi to Nawaz, 1 wide

good length and wide outside off. This time it's past the wide marker. Nawaz still can't get on this angle, but he gets a run

Shaheen Shah Afridi to Nawaz, no run

wide yorker outside off, and he can't reach it because the front leg has pressed a long way into the leg side

Stays around the wicket

Shaheen Shah Afridi to Sarfaraz, 1 run

no, he goes yorker again. Nails it down leg side. Sarfraz punches it past him to long-on's left

Young Shaheen has a bit of pressure on him now. Is this what Sarfaraz was waiting for? Shaheen's two overs? A big conference now with Yasir and Baz. Third man is coming in. Extra cover, mid-off and point are in too. Fine leg goes back. Will he dig it into the pitch?

Shaheen Shah Afridi to Sarfaraz, SIX runs

misses the yorker outside off. It's a friendly, knee-high full toss with a lot of room. He allows it to come on and opens the face to lift it over the point boundary

Shaheen Shah Afridi to Sarfaraz, no run

full and wide outside off. Backs away and makes too much room. Can't get bat on it

Goes around the wicket
