That’s all we have for you today, goodnight and join us for the final.

11.17 pm Darren Sammy: “The way Kamran and Imam set it up on top, it was just brilliant. I did say they are match-winners at the toss, and we saw how well they played today. To post 200 in a do-or-die game is always good. It was a good tactical decision (to bowl four fast bowlers). It was a big call to leave out Dawson, but we always put the team first here and Chis Jordan had an amazing series in the West Indies. I’m just shocked that Wahab and Hasan aren’t bowling for Pakistan. I am very pleased to be in the finals, the Zalmi team has reached three consecutive finals, so it shows the kind of cricket we play. Our guys will be pumped up, two top teams in the final. We have played good cricket throughout the tournament. Different type of pressure in the final. It’s about holding our nerve, like we did today. The atmosphere has been brilliant. We have to raise the bar one more time.”

Mohammad Sami: “We were on the backfoot since their opening stand. If you see the pitch, there wasn’t much spin on it. I’m proud of my team, they played well to get to here. We will come back stronger next year. We gave too high a target today. We should have given 20-30 runs fewer. Overall, we are proud that several players from our side have played for Pakistan.”

11.07 pm Kamran Akmal is the Man of the Match for his splendid 74 off 43. Well deserved, he set the game up for Zalmi and ensured a total that would be beyond Islamabad. “The team played really well, and we got a good total because of the way Imam built the partnership. Then Pollard and Sammy finished it well. It was a very good pitch. Wahab has been bowling fast throughout the tournament. We got wickets in the PowerPlay which is why we could defend our total. I give credit to the whole team for qualifying for the final.”

10.54pm Once Zalmi got to a formidable 214 it was always going to be very difficult for Islamabad. Zalmi’s total was built on a formidable opening stand, with Imam and Kamran carting the bowlers to all parts. The Islamabad bowlers erred in line and length too often, and paid the price. Pollard and Sammy struck their usual blows at the end to swell the total. Zalmi’s bowlers were much more disciplined and fiery, with Wahab hitting 150+, and Jordan, Mills and Hasan Ali also quick and menacing. A comfortable win in the end.

19.6 0 Pollard to Rumman Raees hah, Pollard’s taking the mickey. Bowls a loopy slower ball as the final one, and the batsman just watches it go through. That’s that, and Peshawar have won by 48 runs. They will meet Quetta Gladiators in the final, where a new champion will be crowned because Islamabad United haven’t been able to defend their title. Good campaign by them, even if the last defeat was insipid no run
19.5 0 Pollard to Rumman Raees fullish outside off, swings and misses no run
19.4 3 Pollard to Muhammad Musa Swatted into the offside that time, and Wahab tumbles to his left and dives to save the boundary 3 runs
19.3 4 Pollard to Muhammad Musa Hasan Ali misfields at deep midwicket and allows a four. Too casual from Hasan, because he knows his team have won this, but Pollard’s looking daggers. It’s his bowling figures that are being affected. Hasan throws up a hand in apology FOUR
19.2 1 Pollard to Rumman Raees 1 run
19.1 1 Pollard to Muhammad Musa length ball, he swings across the line and manages to just get it over the straight fence. Chris Jordan at the boundary caught the ball, and tried to parry it back in because he was going over the ropes with the momentum, but couldn’t do it in time, and it’s a six. Okay scratch that, the umpires have just signalled it’s not a six. Perhaps because Jordan was able to throw the ball back into the field of play when airborne? Not sure though 1 run

End of Over No.19 157/9 Last Over (2 runs)

18.6 1 Wahab Riaz to Muhammad Musa speared this into the stumps, but a bit too far down leg and it takes the pad to roll away to short fine. Wahab wasn’t happy with himself, think he wanted to bowl it at the stumps and sneak through the gate, after having bowled full and wide earlier. 1 leg bye
18.5 0 Wahab Riaz to Muhammad Musa full, fast, on the fifth stump. No chance the batsman had to connect, especially a proper tailender no run
18.4 1 Wahab Riaz to Rumman Raees full and wide of off again, Rumman stretches his bat and manages to toe-end the ball past the bowler 1 run
18.3 0 Wahab Riaz to Rumman Raees pacy ball outside off, on the seventh stump. Poke and a miss no run
18.2 W Wahab Riaz to Shadab Khan this is all ending quickly. Shadab’s miserable stay comes to an end with a spooned catch to cover. He goes for a duck, having not managed to play a single convincing shot in his stay. This was a full ball, and he wanted to go straighter, but couldn’t connect well at all OUT
Shadab Khan c Sammy b Wahab Riaz 0 (9b 0x4 0x6) SR: 0.00
18.1 0 Wahab Riaz to Shadab Khan full and well wide of off stump, but within the tramlines. The batsman doesn’t connect no run

60 needed off the last two overs. The only point of interest is the victory margin now

End of Over No.18 155/8 Last Over (3 runs)

17.6 0 Jordan to Rumman Raees yorker length on a fifth stump line, he goes for an ambitious hoick, but connects only with air no run
17.5 1 Jordan to Shadab Khan full and straight on the pads, rolls away to short fine 1 leg bye
17.4 W Jordan to Mohammad Sami well timed, but straight to Pollard at long-on. Full ball on off, and this was hit straight back over the bowler, pleasing follow through and shape – but not enough power. Pollard didn’t move a millimetre, just stayed where he was and cupped the ball around head high OUT
Mohammad Sami c Pollard b Jordan 2 (3b 0x4 0x6) SR: 66.66

Kamran Akmal has just used a hold-up in play to do push-ups on the field. With his keeping gloves. Legend

17.3 0 Jordan to Mohammad Sami digs it in short and quick, too much for Sami, who backs away and tries to pull but doesn’t connect no run
17.2 2 Jordan to Mohammad Sami full on off, swings hard at it, but gets a thickish inside edge to deep square leg 2 runs
17.1 W Jordan to Faheem Ashraf taken at deep midwicket full ball on the stumps, and he picked up nicely off his toes, but sent it in the air and straight to the fielder. Faheem’s resistance comes to an end, and so do any faint hopes Islamabad may have had OUT
Faheem Ashraf c Umar Amin b Jordan 31 (14b 1×4 3×6) SR: 221.42

63 needed off 18 now

End of Over No.17 152/6 Last Over (1 run)

16.6 0 Mills to Shadab Khan short outside off, and slapped to Sammy at cover. He doesn’t take the single, so that Faheem can be on strike next over no run
16.5 0 Mills to Shadab Khan remarkable over, man! Back of a length, wide outside off, and he tries to slap a cut. Misses again no run
16.4 0 Mills to Shadab Khan full and fast just outside off, and this has soared into Kamran’s gloves. Shadab swings across to the leg side once again, but cannot get the connection no run
16.3 0 Mills to Shadab Khan slower ball, back of a length just outside off and ballooning through to the keeper. Just 113kph, from the back of his hand no run
16.2 0 Mills to Shadab Khan back of a length on off, and too close to Shadab’s body for the attempted slog towards the leg side. Through to the keeper. RRR now 17.18 no run
16.1 0 Mills to Shadab Khan length ball, wide outside off, and Shadab makes room to hoick towards the leg side. Misses no run
16.1 1 Mills to Shadab Khan starts off with a wide 1 wide

End of Over No.16 151/6 Last Over (12 runs)

15.6 W Hasan Ali to Hussain Talat caught at long-on by Pollard Big swing across to the leg side, but he doesn’t have the distance. Taken at long on OUT
Hussain Talat c Pollard b Hasan Ali 19 (15b 1×4 0x6) SR: 126.66
15.5 1 Hasan Ali to Faheem Ashraf attempted yorker ends up as a low full toss and he carves it to extra cover 1 run
15.4 6 Hasan Ali to Faheem Ashraf that’s massive a bit short, and Faheem latches on to it. Rocks back and pulls it in front of square. Though where he pulled it didn’t matter, because he he it so hard it was way over the top and well into the crowd SIX
15.3 1 Hasan Ali to Hussain Talat leading edge, but falls short of fine leg. Mills opts to play safe and stay behind the ball to prevent the boundary rather than go for glory with a dive forward. Full ball, and he wanted to swing it to the legside, but got the leading edge 1 run
15.2 4 Hasan Ali to Hussain Talat fullish on the stumps, backs away again and slashes it, and finds the middle of the bat to send it past point for four FOUR
