Hasan Ali403619.00116100
18.2 to Sharjeel Khan, huge appeal for lbw and Islamabad review.That was a yorker that struck him low down on the foot, and replays have it crashing into the stumps. After 18 wicketless overs, two wickets fall in two balls. 176/2

19.6 to Mohammad Nabi, full toss struck to cow corner where it's comfortably taken. Is it a waist-high no-ball? The umpire's are checking, and they rule it's fine! Islamabad end with a wicket, and Karachi will have to defend 197. . 196/3

Imad Wasim403218.0053020
0.2 to PD Salt, holes to long-on, and Dan Christian isn't dropping catches likes Alex Hales! As straightforward a chance as the Englishman had in the first innings, and the Aussie makes no mistake. 1/1
Mohammad Amir4044111.00114240
1.5 to Shadab Khan, struck on the pads, huge, huge appeal for lbw. If that's not pitched outside leg Shadab is history. Replays show it pitched in line, and that's it. Amir gets the breakthrough, and the Islamabad's miserable day has come to an end with a golden duck. 13/2
Aamer Yamin1029029.0005101
Waqas Maqsood2.1022110.1551200
5.3 to AD Hales, slower ball finally does the trick - has that unlocked the key to victory for Karachi?. For once, Hales was bamboozled by the pace and turned his bat a bit too early, letting the ball scoop up high straight to mid-off. 75/3
Arshad Iqbal3030110.0033100
6.3 to Faheem Ashraf, drags on! Similar length as last ball going short, but this time bowled much tighter on third/fourth stump, Ashraf goes to pull and is cramped for room, bottom edge cannons into the stumps.. 82/4
Dan Christian1010010.0001000
Mohammad Nabi402616.5090200
17.4 to Hussain Talat, looks stone dead and the finger goes up! Nabi with a clever change of line darting this flatter on off stump, it straightens and beats the attempted back foot flick by Talat trying to pinch a single to midwicket. Talat goes for the review. Seems more in hope than in belief that it will be overturned. Only way it's not out is if he was out outside the line of off stump, but the ball-tracker shows he was hit fully in line, not even umpire's call, and the ball was knocking back a fleshy part of the stumps. Aleem Dar's decision is upheld.. 176/5
