and that's over! The first time a PSL game has been won inside ten overs! Full outside off and in classical Munro fashion, it's been reverse swept over third man! Man, that was brutal.
OK, then! That's all. A big boost to United's net run rate too as they move to second with eight points. The Gladiators remain rock bottom. See you tomorrow for another Gladiators game, this time they'll be facing Peshawar Zalmi. Good night!
Shadab Khan, winning captain: "The way we played last game, we had come close. We could've taken that result negatively or positively, but today's game showed we took positives out of last game. The bowling has been good all tournament, and in a T20 tournament your bowling makes you win competitions. Things depend on situation, we won the toss, it wasn't easy to bat in the first innings, but was easier in second innings. Want to continue doing good things next game too. Our bowlers Musa, Akif, Wasim did well. Akif is playing after a long time, comebacks are not easy. Musa's two crucial wickets. Wasim's bowling all tournament is great. What's good is our youngsters are doing well. Hasan and I bowled well too, as a unit we are bowling well. If you can restrict under 140 in T20, you know you're bowling well. Faheem Ashraf has stitches, hopefully he will be ready by end of the league phase. He is an important player so we are not risking his recovery by bringing him quickly."
Colin Munro is the Player of the Match. He says, "We didn't adapt to conditions in the earlier game. Today we skinned the cat differently, we watched the games after us and today the wicket got better in the evening. Earlier game we didn't give ourselves time to build an innings, tonight it was about adapting to conditions, taking a bit of time and enjoying it out there. Played a heck of a lot better second innings. Wasim and Akif bowled beautifully."
Shaheer: "This is no doubt the best ever chase in the history of PSL"
Sarfaraz, the losing captain: "Score was low, and bowling wasn't good, we didn't expect them to chase so quickly. Got to praise Munro and Khawaja. We didn't bowl well, and of course batting wasn't good either. But we also need help winning the toss."
Rahul Sargam: "Remember Munro had a terrific big bash season earlier, I hope he will continue to perform like that get the call for the world cup "
11.15pm That was a quick finish, United win by 10 wickets and 60 balls to spare. Munro unbeaten on a 36-ball 90. Khawaja with a useful 27-ball 41. And remember United took all ten wickets in the first innings too. If there ever was a knockout punch delivered in T20 cricket, this is it.
Badar: "It's utterly embarrassing not just for Quetta but to see Pakistan bowlers hoping to play the World T20 all taken to cleaners here. "
Saqib: "Would have to disagree with You @Badar as for me, none from the Quetta team apart from Nawaz deserves to be in the Pakistan WT20 Team.So, it was more of an entertaining night. Enjoy! Cheers! "
