Lahore Qalandars

11:51pm Third win for Lahore. Handshakes all around...except when Sohail comes across Yasir. A complete snub. A bit of clowning, but it's a solid win. They've done well to resist two blitzkriegs, one front Roy, one from Rossouw to manage a decent margin in the end. Fakhar Zaman, of course, set it all up for them. The spinners then strangled Quetta in the middle.

19.6Shaheen Shah Afridi to Mohammad Nawaz, 1 run, length ball in at off stump. Swings across the line and gets an inside edge that dribbles to deep square's left.
19.5Shaheen Shah Afridi to Sarfraz Ahmed, 1 run, short of a length and into the body. A pull off the top part of the bat, to deep midwicket's left.
19.4Shaheen Shah Afridi to Mohammad Nawaz, 1 run, low full toss just outside off, driven down to long-off off the toe-end.

SK Pamiri: "Yasir vs Sohail spat in PSL reminds me of Harbhajan vs Ambati Rayudu in IPL"

19.3Shaheen Shah Afridi to Mohammad Nawaz, BOUNDARY, 6 runs, full ball just outside off, gets deep in the crease and creams this to the extra cover boundary. Stunning hit..

Jahangir: "Very embarrassing to watch that sohail act. Lost my respect. He needs to b reprimanded."

19.2Shaheen Shah Afridi to Mohammad Nawaz, No run, length ball on middle stump, mistimed slog back at the bowler who sticks out his hand to stop it.

Salman khan: "Absolutely disgusting by Sohail, you can't disrespect your teammates like that. "

19.1Shaheen Shah Afridi to Mohammad Nawaz, No run, lbw given and Nawaz reviews. It's a full ball from around the wicket, strikes him plumb in front of middle as he looks to slog. There's no edge on it either. This will come down to whether it pitched in didn't. Marginally outside leg stump. He survives.
End of over 19. 6 runs this over. 159/6 after 113 balls.
Sarfraz Ahmed 27 (18b 2x4 1x6 ) Sohail Khan 4-0-29-0
Mohammad Nawaz 10 (15b 1x4 0x6 ) more

A superb over from Sohail, poor behavious notwithstanding. Yasir was rightfully ticked off and still has a stern look. Lets hope they work that out...

Bit of drama going on here. Sohail trying to get Yasir Shah's attention at deep backward square is annoyed and chucks the ball at him. The veteran isn't happy at all. Childish...

End of over 18. 9 runs this over. 152/6 after 107 balls.

Obaid khan: "I am smelling a thriller..."

Young Shaheen has a bit of pressure on him now. Is this what Sarfaraz was waiting for? Shaheen's two overs? A big conference now with Yasir and Baz. Third man is coming in. Extra cover, mid-off and point are in too. Fine leg goes back. Will he dig it into the pitch?

End of over 17. 9 runs this over. 143/6 after 102 balls.

Waseem Bukhari: "Interesting thing of the innings so far is that Quetta have hit 10 sixes in total, but only 5 fours. Still required rate is near 13. If only they had rotated the strike well, they could've been well placed to chase this one off with ease."

End of over 16. 10 runs this over. 134/6 after 96 balls.

Thanks Deiva. Quetta sinking rapidly...

That's it from me. Varun will take you to the finish

Sreenath: "Pcb should start fining for over rate.. It took almost 7 min for that six from KP to the next ball.. It definitely diverts the batsman focus.. Its just an example, many stoppages in every match..recently Chandimal got fined by ICC , pcb should definitely take a leaf from icc page "
