For Karachi Kings to qualify, both Islamabad and Quetta Gladiators need to lose.
For Lahore Qalandars to qualify, either Islamabad United or Quetta Gladiators need to lose.

So fingers crossed we atleast guarantee a playoff berth. Unless the sim goes haywire.

However, finishing on top will be cherry on the cake.

I think toss will be really crucial. Win toss and bat second on that green minefield.

Gutted about the result. Poor batting cost us the game. We lost the last 9 wickets for 78! The bowling performance was good, with Zafar starring as always. But as soon as Williamson got out, everyone followed.

Still hoping to qualify, but the side has let us and themselves down today. Nevertheless, well-bowled and well-played Karachi!

I got super excited after seeing the tables - only to realise that its not the last game of the fixtures.

Either way, a win is a high win. Got very lucky to be able to defend that total especially on such a batting friendly pitch

Both openers sent back within four deliveries! Aaron Finch and Jonny Bairstow played the new ball cautiously and added 43 runs for the opening-wicket for Islamabad.
Mohammad Amir and a bullseye throw from Virat Kohli sends both of United's openers back to the pavilion, just as it seemed they were about to exploit their start.

Big wicket! Islamabad United's captain is sent back to the dugout after a forgetful run-a-ball 17. A simple nick gets the job done for Mustafizur Rahman and Peshawar.
Islamabad desperately need someone to dig deep and take their innings to the backend. This pitch is not going to assist a run-chase, but they still need runs on the board.

A frail swing of the bat that barely connects has undone Sohaib Maqsood entirely. Looking to take Mohammad Ilyas on, Sohaib Maqsood edged it to the wicket keeper.
With 4 wickets down for 97 - Islamabad need one big knock to get themselves to a respectable total. They've got the bowling power to defend any score on this pitch.

Fifty run stand between Rohail Nazir and Iftikhar Ahmed. United desperately needed a partnership - Rohail Nazir and Iftikhar Ahmed stepped up and delivered just that.
Excellent show of valiancy from Rohail Nazir, playing a subdued and cautious knock. Iftikhar Ahmed took a more attacking approach, and both batsmen were successful.

Mohammad Amir! Mohammad Amir, you beauty! Back-to-back strikes by Mohammad Amir have once again deflated Islamabad United just when they gained momentum.
The well-set Rohail Nazir had no antidote to Mohammad Amir's in-swinging delivery that caught him plumb. Shadab Khan was undone by a fantastic catch from Azhar Ali.

Shakib Al Hasan deceives Iftikhar Ahmed to dismiss the last recognized batsman in Islamabad United's lineup. Iftikhar Ahmed missed a well-earned half-century by 9 runs.
Iftikhar Ahmed's 41 off 38 is the highest-score for Islamabad United in the innings so far - and it seems it's going to take some batting from the tail to top that on this pitch.

Lockie Ferguson gets his first wicket of the game. In his 5.0 overs, Lockie Ferguson has only conceded 10 runs. Just goes to show how difficult it is to bat on this wicket.
Junaid Khan departs 8 balls after Aamer Yamin's dismissal. With the last man out to bat, it seems highly unlikely Islamabad United are going to pass the 200-run mark.

Mohammad Amir delivered big in a must-win game for Peshawar - picking up 3 massive wickets and breaking a crucial partnership between Rohail Nazir and Iftikhar Ahmed.
Rohail Nazir and Iftikhar Ahmed's 50-run partnership for the 5th-wicket was the highest partnership of the innings and it helped Islamabad United stabilize their innings.

Iftikhar Ahmed missed a well-deserved fifty by just 9 runs, but on a pitch where everyone found it hard to bat, Iftikhar Ahmed was timing the ball like nobody's business.
All bowlers picked-up a wicket each with Amir topping the bowling card with his 3. Lockie Ferguson was the most economical whereas Mustafizur Rahman the least.

The toss was crucial. Whoever bowl first is going to have a huge advantage on this pitch. Babar should’ve stepped up, though.

It was a valiant effort by the team. Ferguson bowled extremely well. Aamir once again proved to be the pick of the bowlers. Shakib was decent enough for this track.

I took the risk of going with 4 genuine quicks for this match. While it will limit the batting depth, the risk has paid off till now. Just need one little heroic from the bat.

Both openers sent back within four deliveries! Aaron Finch and Jonny Bairstow played the new ball cautiously and added 43 runs for the opening-wicket for Islamabad.
Mohammad Amir and a bullseye throw from Virat Kohli sends both of United's openers back to the pavilion, just as it seemed they were about to exploit their start.

Big wicket! Islamabad United's captain is sent back to the dugout after a forgetful run-a-ball 17. A simple nick gets the job done for Mustafizur Rahman and Peshawar.
Islamabad desperately need someone to dig deep and take their innings to the backend. This pitch is not going to assist a run-chase, but they still need runs on the board.

A frail swing of the bat that barely connects has undone Sohaib Maqsood entirely. Looking to take Mohammad Ilyas on, Sohaib Maqsood edged it to the wicket keeper.
With 4 wickets down for 97 - Islamabad need one big knock to get themselves to a respectable total. They've got the bowling power to defend any score on this pitch.

Fifty run stand between Rohail Nazir and Iftikhar Ahmed. United desperately needed a partnership - Rohail Nazir and Iftikhar Ahmed stepped up and delivered just that.
Excellent show of valiancy from Rohail Nazir, playing a subdued and cautious knock. Iftikhar Ahmed took a more attacking approach, and both batsmen were successful.

Mohammad Amir! Mohammad Amir, you beauty! Back-to-back strikes by Mohammad Amir have once again deflated Islamabad United just when they gained momentum.
The well-set Rohail Nazir had no antidote to Mohammad Amir's in-swinging delivery that caught him plumb. Shadab Khan was undone by a fantastic catch from Azhar Ali.

         b. Hasan


Shakib Al Hasan deceives Iftikhar Ahmed to dismiss the last recognized batsman in Islamabad United's lineup. Iftikhar Ahmed missed a well-earned half-century by 9 runs.
Iftikhar Ahmed's 41 off 38 is the highest-score for Islamabad United in the innings so far - and it seems it's going to take some batting from the tail to top that on this pitch.

Lockie Ferguson gets his first wicket of the game. In his 5.0 overs, Lockie Ferguson has only conceded 10 runs. Just goes to show how difficult it is to bat on this wicket.
Junaid Khan departs 8 balls after Aamer Yamin's dismissal. With the last man out to bat, it seems highly unlikely Islamabad United are going to pass the 200-run mark.

Mohammad Amir delivered big in a must-win game for Peshawar - picking up 3 massive wickets and breaking a crucial partnership between Rohail Nazir and Iftikhar Ahmed.
Rohail Nazir and Iftikhar Ahmed's 50-run partnership for the 5th-wicket was the highest partnership of the innings and it helped Islamabad United stabilize their innings.

Iftikhar Ahmed missed a well-deserved fifty by just 9 runs, but on a pitch where everyone found it hard to bat, Iftikhar Ahmed was timing the ball like nobody's business.
All bowlers picked-up a wicket each with Amir topping the bowling card with his 3. Lockie Ferguson was the most economical whereas Mustafizur Rahman the least.

50-run stand for the first wicket between Sharjeel Khan and Khurram Manzoor. They've done an exceptional job in seeing off the new ball and getting runs on the board.
Sharjeel Khan has been uncharacteristically cautious in his start but not in a way that's unheard of. Islamabad United need quick wickets and they need them urgently.

Commentator's curse? Khurram Manzoor edges one straight to Rohail Nazir as Jasprit Bumrah provides Islamabad United with the breakthrough they desperately needed.
Peshawar have a high-calibre batting lined-up with Azhar Ali coming out to bat next, Islamabad United are going to have to do extremely well to capitalize on this wicket.

         Sharjeel Khan          36 (54b 4X4)
                        b. Yamin


Aamer Yamin gets Sharjeel Khan! Peshawar Zalmi lose their second wicket for 90 as Sharjeel Khan is swings wildly and his stump is sent rolling off Yamin's bowling.
The required run-rate is less than 3-an-over - Islamabad United have no choice but to pick-up wickets. They couldn't possibly contain Peshawar Zalmi with a 186-run target.

Code:
17.2  Yamin to Kohli, SIX, What a six!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


Virat Kohli doesn't care! If you bowl bad balls at him, it doesn't matter if his team is in a dominant position or if it's the last wicket, he's going to punish them for a six.

What a catch from Babar Azam! An incredible diving effort from Islamabad United's captain has given his team some breathing space. Still too much to ask for Islamabad.
Azhar Ali departs after a well-paced 34 that saw him hit four 4s and a 6. Junaid Khan gets his first wicket of the game and it couldn't have come at a better time for United.

Sarfaraz Ahmed, trying to be cheeky, ran off for a quick single as the ball went to the keeper, but a bullet throw from Rohail Nazir hit the stumps before he could return.
A terrible call and an even worse retrieval has given United a wicket at such a crucial stage of the game. Peshawar Zalmi are 5 down for 145, they need 41 more to win.

Wicket! And what a wicket it is! Hammad Azam is dismissed as Peshawar Zalmi's last recognized batsman heads back to the pavilion, courtesy of Shadab Khan's brilliance.
Perhaps a controversial call as the hawkeye shows the ball just about clipping the top of off-stump, but a wicket's a wicket, and one that has opened Zalmi's tail to United.

Oh dear, oh dear! Mohammad Ilyas had no clue how to play that one. He's thoroughly beaten by another magnificent delivery from Shadab Khan as Zalmi slide further.
Two quick wickets have changed the complexion of the entire game. Peshawar Zalmi need 28 runs, but they only have Shakib Al Hasan and a long tail left in the bank.

The scores have been tied! Peshawar Zalmi can not lose this game anymore, and with that, Islamabad United have been knocked-out of this year's Haier Cup Pakistan.
Even if the game ends in a tie, Islamabad United will not have sufficient points to break into the top-three. An intense heartbreak after almost pulling off a sensational win.

Bowled him! Trent Boult has bowled Mustafizur Rahman to leave Peshawar Zalmi one-run short of the win. An incredible partnership concludes as the game ends in a tie.
Islamabad United and Peshawar Zalmi tie but Islamabad United needed to win in order to qualify for the finals. While the last wicket fell, it fell a run too late for United.

Sigh of relief for Peshawar Zalmi! Shakib Al Hasan might just have played the greatest innings for Peshawar Zalmi in Haier Cup Pakistan history only for it to end in a tie.
A low-scoring game that saw brilliant bowling, resilient innings from both sides and an incredible last-wicket stand that fails to get the job done but it's still enough.

Everyone in Peshawar Zalmi's top-order and middle-order chipped in with valuable scores but none of them could prolong their innings apart from Shakib Al Hasan.
It was his last-wicket stand alongside his fellow countryman Mustafizur Rahman that ultimately nearly snatched the game away from the grasps of Islamabad's bowlers.

Trent Boult was the most expensive, going at 6-an-over. Sharjeel Khan took Trent Boult on in the early overs and that completely dented Trent Boult's figures overall.
Junaid Khan and Jasprit Bumrah were on top today and Shadab Khan bowled a game-changing over, but that last-wicket stand took Islamabad forever to break.

Islamabad United and Multan Sultans have been eliminated.
Peshawar Zalmi and Lahore Qalandars qualify for the finals.

Karachi Kings' fate comes down to Quetta Gladiators v Multan Sultans.
If Quetta Gladiators win, they advance to the finals. If they lose, Karachi Kings advance to the finals.

No! :(
I was sure we'd win it after the 9th wicket fell, but Mustafizur screwed us, along with Shakib, obviously. Couldn’t have asked more of the bowlers, they did a fantastic job under massive pressure. We simply needed more runs. Maybe I should’ve changed up my middle order, but i just didn’t see a lot of alternatives on the bench. Gutted not to be a part of the IndoPak Premier League, but congrats to Peshawar and the other teams who qualified.
Bro, that presentation properly had me on edge, i was about to start jumping up and down when wickets were falling, well done :lol @Na Maloom Afraad
Another fantastic season of my favourite league comes to an end. Can’t wait for the next edition :D
