12.15am Tomorrow in Qualifier 2 it's Multan Sultans vs Lahore Qalandars to see who faces Karachi Kings in the final. See you then - thanks for joining us at ESPNcricinfo for double-header Saturday that saw the return of Pakistan's favourite T20 tournament.

Sohail Akhtar, winning captain: "The way Hafeez was batting, knew that his experience and the way he was batting I was confident we could chase it. We have experienced players, they are taking responsibility. Our bowlers are young so they won't be too drained out."

Wahab Riaz, losing captain: "I think we could've defended the total, but our bowling was short, gave too many runs last few overs. Length bowling wasn't easy when we batted, but when dew came it was easy for them. They needed 36 in three overs, we should've defended."

Mohammad Hafeez is the Man of the Match. He says, "As a team, we lost three wickets in first six, so plan was just to soak the pressure. We know they didn't have spinners, so one-dimensional attack, so just go through with the period of pressure. Dew played a role. Contribution from Ben, Samit and the two sixes from David helped. From last couple of years I've been working really hard on power hitting, thanks to my coaches. Coming back together we had a good feeling in the dressing room. Yes couple of things we need to improve. Hopefully tomorrow we can do it."

Msrk: "LQ looks gud t20 team on paper, they got experience, pace, spin, medium-pacers, quality allrounders "

Badal Khan: "Although Lahore played well but Zalmi were very poor at death. They were bowling length again and again, no Yorkers and variations. Overall, the effort from Zalmi was far below international standards. Aese Nahi kelthy yar. Dil Thor Diya. "

Abdul wahab: "2020 didnt bring something new from IPL final can Lahore Qalandars turn the table, is the real question and being Pakistani Lahore vs Karachi, in the final, is never less than Ashes or India vs Pakistan "

12.02am If you are a fan of TV shows, here's something for you... the professor has completed the heist! Hafeez stays not out on 74, Wiese pumps two sixes and the Qalandars cruise to victory. This is uncharted territory for them... can this be their year? The Peshawar Zalmi, though, are eliminated despite having Qalandars at 33 for 3 at one stage.

Saqib Anjum : "Best thing? PSL 5 will have a new winner! Someone will win the trophy for the first time. Hoping it will be Lahore being a Lahori! "

Raja Asim: "In street cricket, a situation like this where bat started flying along with the bat, and if a fielder gets to the bat first and kisses it after getting under his one leg. The batsman is out :D. Oh man I love cricket "
