Islamabad United

11.38pm Tell you what, that margin of defeat does not reflect the kind of dominance that Islamabad asserted. It was a pristine display of spin bowling from Islamabad - among the best you'll see in T20 cricket. There was grip, turn, flight, dip, loop - just everything you want to see from a spinner. Rare is the T20 that's dominated so much by the spinners but this was that kind of game. But full credit to Peshawar's lower order for fighting until the end. They largely reduced the margin of defeat and these kind of runs are really helpful when it comes down to decimal points and net run rate in the race to the playoffs. Islamabad rise to the top of the table with this win.

Shernawaz: "What a beautiful points table, 10, 9,8,7,6 and lahore qalandars."

K: "Wahab riaz is top scorer while chasing 182.. That probably ends the story "

Shabaib Abdulla: "At the end PZ has done well by minimizing the loosing margin as it will keep ther NRR in check"

Faizan Ahmed: "This has been the issue with United in their last 2 games.Played Brilliently but couldn't finish their Bowling decently."

Akhtar Khan: "Really tough competition in PSL. This moment up and next moment down. All teams fighting for a spot in top 4."

19.6Faheem Ashraf to Wahab Riaz, 1 run, full and angling in on leg, backs away and pushes down to long-on.
19.5Faheem Ashraf to Wahab Riaz, BOUNDARY, 4 runs, short ball, pulled through midwicket and he finds the gap again.
19.4Faheem Ashraf to Wahab Riaz, BOUNDARY, 4 runs, full on middle and leg, gives himself room and thumps it down the ground.
19.3Faheem Ashraf to Wahab Riaz, No run, extremely full and angling on leg stump, backs away and pats it away.
19.2Faheem Ashraf to Umaid Asif, OUT, No run, and finally the partnership is broken. A really full one and he looks at collecting another six. Just that he fails to get underneath it entirely and miscues the slog to long-off.
