Ball by Ball Live Score Commentary

9.30pm Quetta Gladiators make it three in three, completing a simple chase. Watto’s fifty up front set things up for them, Rossouw’s in the middle finished it off. Both men started their innings slowly, got in, and then cut loose. Multan Sultan’s bowling plans were clearly hampered by Ali Shafiq pulling up short and leaving the field with what appeared to be a hamstring injury, and despite a wicket Quetta were rarely under too much pressure. The two fifties in the chase meant that Shoaib Malik’s own fifty earlier went in vain. That’s all tonight, join us for Karachi Kings v Peshawar Zalmi at the same time tomorrow.

18.3 1 Christian to Rossouw and there’s the game, Rossouw pulling to deep midwicket to complete the chase 1 run
18.2 4 Christian to Rossouw the scores are level, Rossow clipping a full ball down to fine leg for four FOUR

Imran Zaidi: “QG is surely the least starred team yet they manage to pull out consistency in all 4 seasons of the league. Commendable job by Moin Khan, Sarfaraz, Azam Khan, Sir Viv and the rest of management.”

Ahsan Butt: “When did U. Akmal become so sensible? ”

18.1 1 Christian to Umar Akmal dabbed to third man, and Umar Akmal turns the strike over once again 1 run

End of Over No.18 155/2 Last Over (4 runs)

16.6 1 Christian to Rossouw another slow bouncer, Rossouw waiting and waiting and then pulling to long on 1 run

16.1 1 Christian to Umar Akmal eased through the infield for a single 1 run

Arshad Javed: “i am so surprised multan sultan is playing with only one fast bowler which is hearting them badly” — They’re not, Ali Shafiq pulled up short with a hamstring injury earlier and had to leave the field

End of Over No.16 143/2 Last Over (15 runs)

15.6 4 Russell to Rossouw hammered over midwicket! This is very tame stuff from Russell, who looks short on pace and rhythm. A short ball just sits up and Rossouw rocks back to pull up and over the infield FOUR
15.5 1 Russell to Umar Akmal short again, and Umar is unhurried as he works the ball off the armpit into the leg side 1 run
15.4 1 Russell to Rossouw fifty up for Rossouw, and he gets there with a controlled pull into the deep 1 run

15.2 1 Russell to Umar Akmal full and he’s on the drive to get the ball to long off 1 run

Usman yasir: “I have scored a maximum as 6 comments are published by cricinfo today! There are some days when none of my comment is published. Is there an improvement in my performance or pitch is flat? :p” — Or maybe Umpire is kind

15.1 4 Russell to Umar Akmal not like this they won’t, Russell returning to the attack and dishing up a long hop outside off that Umar gleefully slaps through point FOUR

Quetta need just 33 to win in five overs. Can Multan Sultans conjure a miracle?

End of Over No.15 128/2 Last Over (5 runs)
