Lahore Qalandars

19.6Usman Khan to Gulraiz Sadaf, 1 run, super over! Unbelievable there. It's confusion everywhere. Full toss low on middle stump, mistimed to long on and they're off for the run. Usman collects, and runs them out at the striker's end as they try the second run. McCullum and Lahore want clarification. He's talking to the umpire, presumably about the run off the previous delivery. The commentators say that 'McCullum thought that they needed one off the final ball.' There's still a lot of confusion..
19.6Usman Khan to Sohail Akhtar, NO BALL, 1 run, is that a six?! Nope, that's taken at long on! Nope, he's overstepped! Karachi's celebrations need to wait. It was in the slot to be punished, and Sohail lifts this over the non-striker. Taken at long on. And Karachi are celebrating! But, but, but, but, Usman has conceded a front-foot no ball. You can't write a script for this! Free hit now, but they're also checking if the batsmen took a single before the catch was taken. If they complete the run then Lahore will need 1 off 1. If he was out before the run was taken, then Lahore need 2 off 1. The umpires are still conferring. OK, its official: no run off the bat there. Lahore need two off one. Plus, a free hit. They can only be run out off the last ball..

Conference between Afridi and the bowler now. The fielders are all in the deep. They know a single is ok, so the Karachi fielders are near the boundary

19.5Usman Khan to Gulraiz Sadaf, 1 run, full on off stump, smacked to cover for a single. They need three off the final ball to win. Two for a super over.
19.4Usman Khan to Sohail Akhtar, OUT, No run, short ball on middle stump, tries to pull but misses because of the slower ball. McClenaghan is backing up and he's scampered across to the other side, but the keeper gets the direct hit. They're taking the second run - off the overthrow - but replays show that the batsman was short! Dot ball, and Sohail's off strike. Four off two now.
19.3Usman Khan to Sohail Akhtar, BOUNDARY, 6 runs, you beauty, Sohail Akhtar! Full on off stump, and he gets his front foot out of the way. Just the perfect length for the long handle, and it's been thumped over long off. Smoked!.

Ten off four balls now

19.2Usman Khan to Sohail Akhtar, BOUNDARY, 4 runs, smacked over Usman! Stands tall and pitches this full ball's length very early. Big swing, and he misses the yorker. The low full toss comes off the bat's sweet spot.
19.1Usman Khan to Sohail Akhtar, 2 runs, good length on middle stump, manages to shovel it to point. The fielder has a shy at the stumps but misses. No one backing up, and Sohail comes back for the second run.

Saad: "@sreshthx, a super over would be amazing. But despite being neutral, if the superover ends up like the game vs IU for Lahore, one would have to feel for them." -- yeah, they've had an OK season, but they've lost the crunch battles in every game. That's hurt them.

K: "Nope. Not today. Don't want that if i see my hands there are no nails... "

M Rashid Khan: "Brendan should go slow and the rest of the batsmen should take risks " -- Salman's that man, I think. Let Baz go bonkers, no? We'd love that.

Saad: "Rather than slogging right from the start, Lahore finally learned a lesson after perpetual humiliation. Now they have laid platform and have lots of fire power to go after this in the end overs. Nevertheless, we must keep in mind that Karachi has a strong bowling attack. This should be a nail biter...unless we witness yet another spectacular collapse, Lahore style." -- can you handle a Superover?
