WATCH - Livingstone's epic PSL debut (Available to audience in the US only)

7.20pm That is that. Karachi Kings begin their PSL campaign with a tight win. It was set up by a record partnership between Babar Azam and England's Liam Livingstone. They ran up 157 for the first wicket - the highest for any wicket in the PSL. Karachi then suffered a collapse at the back end and ended with only 183. It didn't look enough when Malik got going, but Amir's expertise at the death got Karachi home. Hope you enjoyed our coverage as much as we did bringing it to you. Until next time, this is Deivarayan Muthu signing off. Cheers
