6.42 pm: The match is not yet over but it has twisted and turned its way to a Super Over. Karachi had the chase in control then they stumbled badly. Then Multan had it in their grasp but Imad Wasim has somehow pulled off a Super Over.

Mohammad Ilyas to Imad Wasim, FOUR runs

finishes with a four to get a Super Over. Imad moves waaay across to be on a seventh stump line and Ilyas bowls it there. He plays a wonderful pick up off his legs backward square leg and finds the boundary to tie the scores.

Mohammad Ilyas to Imad Wasim, no run

dot ball as Imad lets it go! He went for the wide outside off one and I think he's lucky to get away with it. The ball was cutting across the tram line as it passed the batsman!

Mohammad Ilyas to Maqsood, 1 run

full outside off and he nails the shot, carves it over extra cover for a single

6 off 3. They can't afford a dot ball at all.

Mohammad Ilyas to Imad Wasim, 1 run

full outside off, he was moving across and uses wrists again to try to seep it through midwicket. He's looking for two but will have to settle for one

7 off 4. Imad needs to hit a boundary now. I don't think he can afford to take a single. Long-off is back. Fine leg is up.

Mohammad Ilyas to Amir, OUT

straight down deep midwicket's throat! but it has brought Imad back on strike. Amir went for the glory shot, short ball dug into the pitch, not enough pace on it, Amir goes back to pull. Doesn't get a good enough hit and picks out the fielder. But the batsmen have crossed

Mohammad Ilyas to Amir, no run

superb start by the bowler. A bouncer that is on target, has Amir ducking into it and holding up his bat to fend at it. Takes the helmet I think on the way to the keeper

7 for the win. 6 for the Super Over. Amir to face

Tanvir to Imad Wasim, FOUR runs

length ball outside off, and he threads the gap between point and short third man with a finely timed boundary

Tanvir to Amir, 1 run

backs away and punches this over the bowler's head down the ground. Not great connection as it bounces to long-off

Tanvir to Amir, no run

back of a length outside off, he makes room to try and swing at it but misses

Tanvir to Imad Wasim, 1 run

fuller, punched to extra cover

Tanvir to Imad Wasim, SIX runs

stunning. Pressure building and Imad just goes back deep and uses wrists and bottom hand to flick this from outside off to over deep midwicket

Tanvir to Parnell, OUT

direct hit from point and Parnell is run out. That was strange running from Parnell, he was just jogging. Good length ball outside off, nicely cut but straight to point. Imad has called him through for the single - right call I think since he needs to be on strike. Parnell just jogs across. The fielder takes aim and shatters the stumps with Parnell yards short.

Wayne Parnell run out (Bopara) 1 (3b 0x4 0x6) SR: 33.33

And just like that, Karachi need 19 off the last two overs. Tanvir will bowl one of them. Who will bowl the last one? Irfan has an over, Ilyas too. But has to be Tanvir for this one you would think. Best bowler bowls the 19th in a close game. And it is indeed Tanvir.
