Wahab Riaz402927.25113020
14.3 to Babar Azam, full, on off, but again it's the slower ball that gets him despite it being in the slot. Babar looks to hit it over long on, but he's toe ended it, and long on runs in to finish it off. 101/4
17.4 to CAK Walton, holes out as he looks to clobber a shot off his hips to deep midwicket, but doesn't have the distance. Riaz cramped him with the angle around the stumps. 142/6
Mohammad Irfan402125.25154000
5.5 to Sharjeel Khan, given!Cleared the front leg and tried to baseball slog it for a home run. Missed completely, and he goes up for a review immediately. Height could be an issue. It isn't, though, three reds! Sharjeel has to go. 41/1
11.2 to Danish Aziz, he's edged that and it's gone up a mile. Imam-ul-Haq gets underneath the miscue and takes a good catch. Karachi slide further as another hugely dangerous batsman is removed. 73/3
Mohammad Imran403719.2586000
19.2 to Imad Wasim, can't put this slot ball away. Full outside off, but he made too much room. Mistimes the shot, and taken at long on. 165/7
Umaid Asif403729.2582210
6.3 to MJ Guptill, he's snared Guptill with a pearler! The Kiwi's poor, poor PSL continues. Just outside off stump, and he hung his bat at it. It goes to Akmal off the outside edge, with the veteran keeper taking a simple catch. 42/2
16.4 to NLTC Perera, it's over but Perera has done his job...although Kings would've wanted a bit more. Back of a length, slower ball outside off. Perera looks to hammer it over deep midwicket, but one hand is off the bat midway through the shot, and comfortably taken at long on. 134/5

Imad Wasim302608.6693110
Mohammad Amir403719.25104210
18.2 to Shoaib Malik, good length, on off. Goes for a leg-side hoick, and bottom edged to the keeper! Amir gets a wicket for the first time in the second leg. And what a big wicket...Malik, the experienced Malik. 163/5
Mohammad Ilyas3.503017.8293110
17.2 to Khalid Usman, off stump knocked back! Ilyas points at his heart after getting that. Fullish, outside off but angleing into off. Misses the slog, gets an inside edge, and the zing lights are on!. 155/4
Arshad Iqbal302809.3353100
Noor Ahmad4041110.25104230
4.4 to Kamran Akmal, the wunderkind strikes! Pulls his length back, and lures Akmal into a heave over cow corner. He plays down the wrong line, and Kings finally have their breakthrough. 49/1
Thisara Perera201025.0061000
9.6 to Imam-ul-Haq, chopped on! And that seems like a wasted innings. A lot of balls faced without much impact. Good length ball, looks to pull, but it is inside-edged onto the stumps. 92/2
11.3 to Hazratullah Zazai, is he gone? Yes! Perera turning the game first with bat and now with ball! Slower ball, wideish, full, and he mistimes the slog. Toe-ended to Guptill at long on. 103/3
