6.45pm That's all from us from match seven, but we'll be back for match eight very soon. Join us in under thirty minutes for Peshawar Zalmi v Quetta Gladiators.
6.32 pm Lots went right for Sultans, not so much for the Qalandars today. Maqsood and Rizwan showed no mercy and a net run rate boost like this would help later perhaps. Sultans are now fourth.
Mohammad Rizwan, winning captain: "My hard work and bravery works thanks to Allah. The way our bowlers Sohail and Dahani and Qadir started, that was great. Our lack of good performances in the death bowling was improved and so we restricted them. In any match, if you win you can't get relaxed after that. Previously we were losing despite dominating most of the match. This game we managed to carry the momentum. I don't believe in toss dictating match results and chasing teams winning. If you bowl well at the death, get the yorkers in, then chasing teams can't score. I decide toss choice by gauging team strengths."
Sohail Akhtar, losing captain: "We were 15-20 runs short, also some bad fielding. We are seeing if we can get other spinners like Rashid. His exit has affected our bowling. Hope to find a replacement."
Sohaib Maqsood: "Rizwan hit the ball really well. Rizwan told me that he'll take risk and I'll take my time. If you play 15-20 balls, you can hit the big shots after that.
Maqsood clears the roof! Short on the stumps, pulverizes this out of the ground over square leg. What an emphatic finish. Sultans with a ruthless display clinching victory by seven wickets and 22 balls to spare.
slower ball lands full on off, flicked gently into midwicket.
Haris seems determined to end this match without any more runs conceded off the bat.
another bouncer, this time over off stump and a wide called on height.

slower bouncer, Rossouw lets it pass outside off.

wide bouncer outside off, could've been given on the line or height. Umpire spoiled for choice but stretches his arms regardless of the options on the table to signal extra.
back of a length on middle, flicked with soft hands toward Wiese at deep midwicket and they take him on for a second.
slower ball lands on a good length and springs over off stump as Maqsood nearly lets go of his bat with a wild heave way too early to the leg side.
Asif Hyat: "@abdul: Hafeez run out is the difference in this match. Chase would've been near to impossible bcause of the way he was playing." It was an important moment, but Qalandars have done themselves zero favors with their deplorable fielding. Too many chances put down, almost all of them straightforward.
wide yorker, carved out to deep cover.
Syed: "Disagree with all on a toss. The match between Karachi and ISB was lost bcoz of bad captaincy. If you could have brought the Nabi well before." Fair point.
short and wide, glided to deep third man.
Rizvi: "The respect these players give in PSL is just to heart warming, Hassan and Sharjeel the other day and now Shaheen and Rizwan."
short and wide, guides this with an open face to deep third man.
overpitched on middle and leg, Maqsood finally breaks the shackles in this over to flick elegantly through midwicket. 50 up off 34 balls.

full on the stumps, defended into the ring.
miracle! Catch is finally taken! Short ball on fourth stump, Rizwan tries for another front foot pull but picks out Haris Rauf at deep square leg jogging in from the rope and takes a simple catch 10 yards in at waist height. Shaheen gives Rizwan a hug and a cuddle as a form of congratulations before letting him walk off.
