Ball by Ball Live Score Commentary

2am And that is it from the first evening of PSL 4! Superb skills on display all through the match and quite a bit of fireworks. See you soon!

Faheem Ashraf is the Man of the Match.

Usama Ali: “Regardless of who you were supporting, it’s encouraging as a Pakistani fan to see Faheem Ashraf and Asif Ali chase down a target together. Will be interesting in this whole tournament to see if players like them can improve like this, and later translate it internationally. “

Asad: “In all 3 previous seasons of psl in the first match of psl the team which lost their first game qualified for the final feeling for lahore”

Bilal: “Islamabad always finds a way of winning matches. One way or the other they will out the opposition down”

Mudassir Nadeem: “My goodness this Islamabad team has really strong bating lineup with shadab and patel still to come..”

Ilty: “I actually thought it was bad captaincy. He let a spinner bowl the 16th over and they just got into the zone against him. Then bowled Rahat at the wrong time who was bowling terribly by bowling length. Haris rauf should have been tried who’s known to be good at the death.”

1:41am This explains everything, doesn’t it? Islamabad have won with four balls to spare thanks to a 59-run stand for the sixth wicket. And it took only 4.4 overs. This is why they didn’t spend too much time trying to build the innings even when wickets fell quickly. They didn’t need to. Samit Patel, 238 T20s – 28 fifties – at a strike rate of 125, didn’t get a bat today. Neither did Shadab. And that is the story. They pulled it back late in Lahore’s innings, and blazed away early on to keep the required rate within distance. A three-wicket over from Rahat changed the momentum somewhat, but Islamabad didn’t let them build on that. A bright start to the evening for Qalandars, but it’ll feel like more of the same right now.

19.2 6 Mohammad Hafeez to Faheem Ashraf first tier over the midwicket boundary to finish! Length ball fired at middle, backs away and clears the boundary easily with a pull SIX
19.1 0 Mohammad Hafeez to Faheem Ashraf length ball fired at a length on middle stump. Drives to mid-off’s left. AB dives to stop no run

End of Over No.19 171/5 This Over (11 runs)

Anyone still hoping for a Lahore win? Would be among the greatest overs in T20 history. Hafeez will try to bowl it…

18.6 1 Shaheen Shah Afridi to Faheem Ashraf low full toss at leg stump, looks to drive straight, gets it to fine leg off the inside edge 1 run

Wasi: “Only if Asif and Faheem could perform like this for Pakistan too.”

18.5 1 Shaheen Shah Afridi to Asif Ali length outside off, drilled to long-off’s left 1 run
18.4 6 Shaheen Shah Afridi to Asif Ali just clears the boundary at long-on. Slower ball at a good length, outside off. Full swing of the bat and not completely in control of the timing, but there was enough power to clear the fence despite the extra elevation SIX
18.4 1 Shaheen Shah Afridi to Asif Ali full and down leg side, lets it pass 1 wide
18.3 1 Shaheen Shah Afridi to Faheem Ashraf full on middle stump, driven to long-on 1 run
18.2 1 Shaheen Shah Afridi to Asif Ali This is sweetly struck. Overpitched just outside off, drilled straight past his feet. Long-off had to be quick to his right 1 run
18.1 0 Shaheen Shah Afridi to Asif Ali full outside off, driven straight to extra cover no run

Stays around the wicket. 12 off 12.

End of Over No.18 160/5 This Over (16 runs)

17.1 6 Rahat Ali to Asif Ali almost gets the fifth! But Devcich can’t hold on with a sensational effort at long-off. Offcutter, at a length outside off. Slammed on the up, flat. Devcich leaps and parries it over the rope. Tries to drag it back into play but he can’t quite manage it SIX

Hadi: “Its almost 1:30am!!! 2:30 in Pak. Should be a crime having matches at this hour regardless of weekend”

End of Over No.17 144/5 This Over (9 runs)

Ahsan Butt: “That late mess that LQ created in their innings is going to cost them this game.”

16.4 0 Shaheen Shah Afridi to Asif Ali yorker just outside off, past the outside edge as he looks to jam it to third man no run

Saran: “Good to see Faheem back in bit of form with bat,needed badly both in PSL and in national side”

16.3 4 Shaheen Shah Afridi to Asif Ali to the long leg boundary. Short ball at off. Shuffles, uses the pace and the angle into him to lift this behind square FOUR

Shaheen, around the wicket

End of Over No.16 135/5 This Over (11 runs)

Ahmed Shaukat: “That shot of Hussain made me recall Misbah’s shot in T20 final in 2007.”

15.5 4 Yasir Shah to Faheem Ashraf and another! Length and skidding across, quick. Easy pickings at that pace. Reverse-whip, just past short third FOUR
