End of Over No.20 177/6 Last Over (14 runs)

7.30pm Phew! There was almost nothing to separate these two teams, but with his unbeaten fifty Dawson has done just that. Dawson is named Player of the Match for his knock.

“We tried to take the game deep,” says Dawson. “We know it’s not easy coming in as a new batsman. I was a little bit nervous. They bowled well. Faheem bowled really well with his wide yorkers.”

Jay Dee: “Love you Liam (both of you) I won my Biryani Plate.” — Enjoy!

Abhijato: “Well sir, it’s been another stunning match for booksellers and cricket lovers alike… As I had mused, with his sportsmanship and skills, Sammy has grown his legend yesterday as well as tonight. What a player! We are lucky to see him play, for when he comes good, he comes good in a way which is perhaps incomprehensible to people who haven’t seen him. Here’s to hoping you do see some Duminy magic in Newlands(;)!” — I’ll be heading there in a few minutes, just in time for the chase.

Nisar: “Its like a perfect written script, Birthday boy hitting last ball for four to win the game. I reckon full PSL in Pakistan would be hell of a League like IPL, the quality of cricket is just incredible.”

Alber Soomro: “I was tired back from university, I followed match for a while and then went to sleep, I woke up and open ESPN App and wow wow wow !! What I was able to witness, match ain’t over, PZ needs 14 off 6 balls with Sammy on strike, What a Thriller, In the end Happy Birthday Liam. What a way to celebrate it of last ball 4.”

Ibrahim: “Too much biryani plates for bet in PSL. This is the beauty of PSL ”

TalhaBadr: “@ArhamAtif. You smelt a toe biting finish after 14th over of 1st innings. You go to one hell of a NOSE”

Mohsin Shah: “Dawson has given Birthday treat to zalmi fans.. Now its Afridi’s time to give birthday treat to Sultan fans..”

Dawson on strike, on his birthday. He needs to hit the last ball for four to win the game

19.5W Mohammad Sami to Sammy Sammy is run out! They chance another bye to a missed drive, and again the keeper throws the ball to Sami. He turns and throws, hitting the stumps this time. And Sammy hasn’t grounded his bat! His bat was over the line, but in the air, and his foot wasn’t grounded OUT

Dawson knows what Faheem is trying to do so he walks right across to the off side again, scooping the full ball in the air and just over a leaping short fine leg fielder. Dawson walked so far across, he wasn’t even standing on the pitch when he played the shot FOUR
