Scorecard summary
Multan Sultans 149/10(20 overs)
Islamabad United 150/6(19.4 overs)

Mohammad Wasim is the player of the match "I'm very thrilled to perform at such a big stage," he says. "Our captain motivates us very well." Says he's going to give the PKR 750,000 he gets for this award to charity.

Shadab Khan lauds Wasim's effort. "He went for runs in the first over but as a captain, you have to trust an emerging player who's keen to prove himself. It's satisfying to see it pay off.

"We'll try to correct some of the little mistakes we made and ensure we don't do that the next time we play Multan Sultans. They're playing such good cricket, and they've won four on the trot. Whoever keeps their nerve in the pressure moments goes through."

Rizwan, losing captain: "We lost, but a captain wants their players to fight till the end, and that's all I can ask for. Yes we lost wickets but we came with positive intent, so it happened. The momentum got lost, credit to their bowlers. The numbers on the chair that the coaches give are "suggestions" what they give. But the decision is mine on what strategy we eventually go with. What they are giving is ideas."

2.12am So it's three minutes to 2.15am in the UAE, and we finally have a winner. United end the league stage with another win, taking them to eight victories in ten matches. Multan Sultans, although they lost today, have absolutely dominated the UAE phase of the tournament and have moved from fifth to second since the tournament restarted.

What's most impressive for United is that they won despite resting three big players: Khawaja, Munro and Ali. And good return into the XI for Shadab and Faheem after missing a few matches.

19.4
1lb
Muzarabani to Iftikhar, 1 leg bye

yorker length, on leg stump. Hits the boot and rolls away and they pinch a single. But not out given and Sultans go for the review cause why not. This is pitching on middle, but impact is outside leg and therefore United have won it. The TV umpire is checking for the run out too, but United and Sultans are certain that the chasing team has won this. United win by four wickets

Muzarabani to Iftikhar, 2 runs

short ball, and pulled to deep midwicket. Two fielders in the deep congregate to cut the boundary but two makes it a tie

Three off four.

Muzarabani to Talat, OUT

Dhani takes a great catch! Short ball, on leg. Swivels to pull, and he mistimes a flick that goes in the air. Fine leg runs in and slide across the ground, and is there a twist in here? Muzarabani delighted with Dahani's effort

Hussain Talat c Shahnawaz Dahani b Muzarabani 34 (33b 3x4 0x6) SR: 103.03

Three off five.

yes they need four off six balls to win, United. Short ball angling across, and no connection made

Is this going into the final over?

Can Dahani get one more wicket to set the cat among the pigeons? He has the skills. And he's taking his time every ball

Usman Qadir to Talat, 1 run

A dangerous looking spell from Qadir comes to an end. Some amazing turn in both directions from him. He sure does give the ball a rip. This length ball to end his spell is flicked to deep midwicket

Usman Qadir to Iftikhar, 1 run

good length on off. Legbreak turns sharply. He drags a shot to long on for one

pearler! Good length on middle, and the legbreak turns across the bat, and nearly clips off stump!

Usman Qadir to King, OUT

Sohail Khan to King, no run

good length, on middle and leg. Slower ball though, and King nearly chops it onto his stumps

King plays at Guyana Amazon Warriors in the CPL. His United coach Johan Botha is a coach at Amazon Warrior too

16.5
Sohail Khan to King, no run

back of a length, on off. Wants to pull but misses

Not many runs for King to make a proper impact, so he's going to try and entertain people and also send a message to the United camp

Sohail Khan to King, FOUR runs

good length, outside off. He backs away, makes room, and baseball swings a shot. Enough to go over mid off, and that just races away thereafter
