00:30 (IST)

How often do you see a loss like this? Karachi Kings had eight wickets in hand and one set batsmen at the crease, yet they ended up on the losing side. Anyways Peshawar Zalmi won't mind that. They are into the final where they will clash against Islamabad United. The summit clash is on Sunday. It will start at 7.30 pm. Do join us for that match. Until then, it's time to say goodybe. 

00:24 (IST)

Darren Sammy, Peshawar Zalmi captain: Just one more to go, but credit goes to the boys for the way they played. Today Kami was exceptional; that partnership with Fletcher. Yeah it was a good pitch. The support we get from the fans, you can't ask for more. 

00:22 (IST)

Mohammad Amir, Karachi Kings captain: We got off to a good start in the first four overs. But the way Kami bhai played thereafter, was the difference. Wherever he hit, it went the distance. I think it was his day. Would've been great had Karachi played the final at home. I think we have a lot to improve next year.

"I give full credit to the team, especially to the bowlers for defending the 170-run total. Thank to the Almighty, as well as the blessings of my parents, I have been able to deliver with the bat," says MoM Kamran Akmal. 

00:20 (IST)

Kamran Akmal is the Man of the Match for his 27-ball 77, and also gets the Hanif Mohammed cap for being the top run-getter. 

00:01 (IST)

KK 157/2 after 16 overs (Denly 79, Ingram 5) 


Wahab Riaz bowls the final over, and he starts off with a no-ball called for height, as Ingram cops a blow on his abdomen. Ingram though, lobs the ball down the ground for a single, bringing Denly back on strike. Denly gets a thick leading edge, which sends the ball high up in the air, with Denly getting only a double as the ball is cut off near sweeper point. Swing and a miss for Denly off the third delivery, with Riaz bowling a slower bouncer on the occasion. Denly gets a boundary off the fourth delivery, but it is of little use for Karachi. Single to Denly off the fifth ball, guiding it towards fine-leg for a single. Ingram smacks the ball down the ground for a four, but it does little good for the chasing side as Karachi end up 13 runs short of the opposition's total with as many as eight wickets left in their kitty, and with Denly batting on 79 off 46. 


Peshawar Zalmi win by 13 runs, and meet Islamabad United in the final of PSL 2018 at the National Stadium in Karachi!

Hasan bowls the penultimate over. Singles collected off the first two deliveries, with Azam and Denly rotating the strike between themselves. Azam holes out to deep midwicket while trying to accelerate the innings, getting a pat on his back from Pakistan teammate Hasan Ali on his way back. Denly though, keeps Karachi in the hunt with a six and two fours off the last three deliveries of the over. 


Karachi Kings need 27 off the last 6 balls with eight wickets in hand.

Preview: Having survived a last-over scare against Quetta Gladiators in the first eliminator, Peshawar Zalmi prepare themselves for the second big test in as many days as they face Karachi Kings in the second eliminator of Pakistan Super League(PSL) 2017 at the Gaddafi Stadium in Lahore.

Peshawar were boosted by an attacking half-century from Liam Dawson, before some tight bowling by the pace attacking comprising Hasan Ali, Sameen Gul and Wahab Riaz choked the flow of runs in the middle stages of the Quetta innings. Dawson, bowling the final over the Quetta innings, nearly became the villian for the defending champions that night when he got smacked for three sixes and a four by Anwar Ali, with the Gladiators needing three to win off the last ball in their chase of the 158 run target, before Ali's partner Mir Hamza got himself run out to give Zalmi a win by a run.

The focus in the Zalmi camp will be on the fitness of captain Darren Sammy, who was seen limping in the previous game, which affected both his batting as well as fielding. The St Lucian though, is expected to brave the niggle out and lead his side on Wednesday. Wicketkeeper-batsman Kamran Akmal will be looking to strike big against Karachi, having enjoyed a good run with the bat in the league stage before suffering a blip in the first eliminator.

As far as the Karachi Kings are concerned, there are some major changes lined up for the clash, with both Shahid Afridi as well as Imad Wasim missing out on the crucial knockout game due to fitness issues, while England limited-overs captain Eoin Morgan is among the foreign players who have refused to travel to Pakistan for the remainder of the tournament due to fitness issues.
