TOTAL20 Ov (RR: 9.15)183/5
Fall of wickets: 1-72 (Mohammad Rizwan, 8.1 ov), 2-88 (Sohaib Maqsood, 9.6 ov), 3-125 (Shan Masood, 13.5 ov), 4-129 (Rilee Rossouw, 14.2 ov), 5-171 (Johnson Charles, 18.4 ov)
14.2 to RR Rossouw, and now it's Rossouw who's dismissed. Nawaz goes full on middle and off, and Rossouw goes for the slog sweep but gets a top edge to fine leg. That was in the air for a while, and required good judgement from the fielder, which Usman Khan provides by diving forward to complete the catch. The change of angle perhaps played in the minds of the batter, and the Sultans lose back to back wickets. 129/4
9.6 to Sohaib Maqsood, there's the breakthrough. Maqsood looks to work this towards third man, but hasn't picked up the regulation leg-break. Seems to have missed it completely, as it clips the top of off. 88/2
8.1 to Mohammad Rizwan, chopped on! Just a regulation ball, back of a length, around off, and he looks to run it down to third man. Gets it off the inside edge, and it goes on to his off stump. Rizwan is filthy with himself, because he realises he was playing the perfect foil for Masood, and the new player might take a few deliveries to settle in. 72/1
18.4 to J Charles, the slower ball castles him this time. Scrambled seam and an offcutter on a yorker legnth on off stump, and Charles' push at the ball is late. But he's played a brilliant hand to get the Sultans past 170, though they would have loved for him to hang on. 171/5
13.5 to Shan Masood, caught at long-on. Masood makes room by stepping outside leg, and goes for another smashing drive to take on the bowler again. But he ends up miscuing it instead and doesn't find the distance on this occasion. Sarfaraz had had a word with Hassan after that last six, and that seems to have paid off. 125/3

TOTAL12.1 Ov (RR: 6.00)73
Fall of wickets: 1-27 (Jake Weatherald, 3.2 ov), 2-27 (Cameron Delport, 3.4 ov), 3-35 (Usman Khan, 5.2 ov), 4-46 (Azam Khan, 7.3 ov), 5-59 (Sarfaraz Ahmed, 8.5 ov), 6-59 (Mohammad Nawaz, 9.1 ov), 7-59 (Hassan Khan, 9.2 ov), 8-59 (Khurram Shahzad, 9.3 ov), 9-66 (Usman Shinwari, 11.1 ov), 10-73 (Zahir Khan, 12.1 ov)
7.3 to Azam Khan, got him this time! Length, just around off, and he has a nibble at it. Goes low to the right of Rizwan, who makes no mistake. Quetta's PSL playoff hopes look to be in a pretty bad way right about now. 46/4
8.5 to Sarfaraz Ahmed, Sarfaraz is gone this time! Over the wicket from Tanvir this time, and another change up in pace. Sarfaraz tees this up, looking for the mid-wicket fence, but gets a top edge. Imran Tahir runs in from third man and takes a good catch in front of him. 59/5
12.1 to Zahir Khan, backs away, makes room and sends that bang to deep point. Gladiators' elimination confirmed now, as Zahir goes for the aerial drive to this full length ball on middle and leg. That's the second-lowest total in PSL as well, and the Sultans romp home on by a massive 110 runs. 73/10
3.2 to J Weatherald, that's well bowled! Perfect channel to bowl to the left-hander. Good length, angles across him at good pace, and just about nudges him into an indiscreet drive. Thin edge through to Rizwan, and Imran punches the fist after leaping into celebration. Weatherald was looking dangerous, and that's a critical early breakthrough for the Sultans. 27/1
3.4 to CS Delport, two in the over! Delport is done in by a change of pace, but what in the world was he trying off just his second ball? Tries to make room, and Imran does well to take some pace off it. Delport ends up toe-edging this, and it is collected at mid-off. Imran is down on his haunches, still pumping his fist. What a fantastic first over. 27/2
9.2 to Hassan Khan, holed out to long-off. Tahir sets off on his celebratory run. Quetta lose another one, as Hassan mistimes an intended lofted drive. 59/7
9.3 to Khurram Shahzad, appeal for lbw, and given. Reviewed by Khurram. Good length ball and flatter on middle and leg. Turns away slightly and strikes the back of his front pad before flicking to the back pad. No bat involved, as confirmed by the replays. That's three reds, and just as many wickets in the over. It's all wrapping up quick and fast here. Tahir on a hat-trick. 59/8
11.1 to Usman Shinwari, goes flatter with that flipper on middle, and he's got him leg before. Reviewed by Hasnain. That pitches on a full length on middle and comes back in to crash into the stumps. No bat, as confirmed by the replays and nine down now. 66/9
