Ball by Ball Live Score Commentary

7.20pm What a knock from Misbah! What a partnership too, with Sammy. All those years of experience really counted in the end, and this win means Zalmi have qualified for the play-offs. Misbah finishes with 59 not out, having added a round 100 for the sixth wicket with Sammy, which is a new PSL record. Where did it all go wrong for Qalandars? They had the game in their hands when Zalmi were 20 for 5. For his game-changing knock, Misbah is the Player of the Match.

“To qualify for the play-offs was the first objective,” says Zalmi captain Darren Sammy. “We’ve got one game left, hopefully we can seal that top two spot. We’re united, we win together, we lose together.”

Muneeb Saeed: “cometh the moment, cometh the man! What an innings from King Misbah! ”

Abdul Khan: “Misbah ul haq loves the Abu Dhabi stadium. He has a great record and it would be a great way to end his time in Abu Dhabi. Love you King”

Abhijato: “The last over kept us on the edge of our seats. These veterans of the game have shown us what experience and temperament can help you achieve. It’s been an insightful experience for both cricket fans and young players watching the game. The PSL is leaving us breathless with its production of one timeless thriller after another… Cheers to tapes for holding these creaky bones together, the PCB for organising this tournament, and Cricinfo for making cricket easier to follow and love!”

Ashish Poudel: “I am very unhappy for Shishir … I think he will die single : ) ”

19.51 Lamichhane to Wahab Riaz tapped to short third man, they take on the fielder and complete a remarkable chase! 1 run

And now ten Doeschate will go off. He’s hurt his back and can’t continue. Lamichhane will finish the over, Wahab Riaz on strike. Super over, anyone?

19.43 ten Doeschate to Misbah-ul-Haq overthrows! Misbah clips to midwicket, and they take on the fielder for a second run. The throw from the deep by Fakhar is not a great one, and the keeper can’t collect it cleanly either, giving away another run. And they’re level 3 runs

Misbah is on strike. Oh dear, and ten Doeschate seems to have hurt his back as well. Drama. Lamichhane to finish the over?? No, ten Doeschate is good to go

19.31 ten Doeschate to Wahab Riaz short, and it’s pulled down to fine leg, where the fielder collects on the bounce 1 run

Five balls remain, Zalmi need five runs from them

19.2W ten Doeschate to Sammy Sammy is floored! The ball keeps a little low, Sammy swings hard at it, but it zips under the bat and into the stumps. He loses his balance trying to play the shot too. Ten Doeschate comes over himself to help Sammy up OUT
DJG Sammy b ten Doeschate 46 (36b 4×4 1×6) SR: 127.77
19.11 ten Doeschate to Misbah-ul-Haq dropped at fine leg! It was a really tough chance. Misbah swung the ball very hard down to fine leg, and Sohail Akhtar had to dive to get down low at the dipping chance. He got there, but couldn’t hold on as he hit the ground 1 run

Sujan from Nepal: “Shishir, please propose the girl if Sandy defends the match in last over. Sandy, please win this match for Shishir and us. ” — Sorry everyone, Ryan ten Doeschate will bowl the last over

End of Over No.19 119/5 Last Over (7 runs)

18.60 Shaheen Shah Afridi to Sammy another excellent yorker from Afridi, and Sammy can do nothing with this one no run
18.51 Shaheen Shah Afridi to Misbah-ul-Haq just short of a good length and Misbah swivels to pull to midwicket 1 run
18.41 Shaheen Shah Afridi to Sammy sharp yorker from Afridi, but it still brings a single as Sammy digs it out to long off 1 run
18.31 Shaheen Shah Afridi to Misbah-ul-Haq flicked off the pads for a single into the leg side 1 run

Nadeem: “Amazing display of batting by these two ‘seniors’ and teaching the younger generations how to play in these conditions. ”

18.20 Shaheen Shah Afridi to Misbah-ul-Haq Shaheen aims full, just outside off, and Misbah is forward to push to cover no run
18.14 Shaheen Shah Afridi to Misbah-ul-Haq lofted over cover! Misbah goes to fifty. This stand is now the highest for the sixth wicket in PSL history, and Misbah is the oldest player to score a T20 fifty FOUR

This stand of 92 (so far) has resurrected Zalmi. They need just 13 from the last two overs now, a situation that was almost unthinkable when they were 20 for 5

End of Over No.18 112/5 Last Over (18 runs)

17.66 Haris Rauf to Sammy launched over cover! Sammy has taken Rauf on, and won the battle. This was full and wide, and Sammy sent it arcing over the cover field with a fierce swing of the blade SIX
17.52 Haris Rauf to Sammy full and swatted out to deep midwicket, where Devcich sprints around the boundary to keep them to two 2 runs

Isaac Marshall: “There was huge pressure on Shehzad! If he didn’t get a big score he was probably dropped for the rest of the PSL and maybe not retained for next year so it was a potentially career deciding knock. It’s like comparing mandarins to tangerines.”

17.44 Haris Rauf to Sammy off the edge! Sammy swings hard at a full one and a thick edge bouncing down to the third man boundary FOUR

Bilal Ahmed: “Misbah is oozing experience. He’s an epitome of class and composure.”

17.34 Haris Rauf to Sammy slapped over mid off! Sammy spots a full length delivery and lifts it cleanly over mid off to raise the hundred FOUR
17.21 Haris Rauf to Misbah-ul-Haq in the air, but safe! Misbah heaves at a length delivery but he miscues the shot. Fortunately for him, he hits it so badly that the ball drops well in front of long on 1 run
17.11 Haris Rauf to Sammy yorker to start from Rauf, Sammy squeezes it down to third man for a single 1 run

Aishf: “You have got to admire Zalmi’s resilency. They never give up even if they are in tough situations. Perhaps the Qalandars can take a note from them seeing how they have thrown away easier matches.”

End of Over No.17 94/5 Last Over (4 runs)

16.60 Shaheen Shah Afridi to Misbah-ul-Haq very full, just outside off, and Misbah drills his drive to cover, where Fakhar dives to stop the shot and save a boundary no run

Ali: “@Isaac, you cant compare apple with oranges. This is an innings under pressure and that innings was relatively pressure-less.”

16.52 Shaheen Shah Afridi to Misbah-ul-Haq full and angling in towards middle. Misbah clips in the air out to midwicket, and somehow the two old veterans at the crease hustle a second run 2 runs

Ahmad H. Nadeem: “Like a kid having too many toys to play, PZ has too many bowling options and is undecided as what to do.”

16.41 Shaheen Shah Afridi to Sammy short and wide again, Sammy throws the bat at it but there’s cover in the deep 1 run

Isaac Marshall: “Can I just quickly remind everyone that Shehzad’s last knock was quicker than Misbah’s today to put it in perspective. A lot of people have bias towards Shehzad because they want him to fail.”

16.31 Shaheen Shah Afridi to Misbah-ul-Haq outside off, and Misbah slashes down to third man 1 run

I’m not sure what this delay is about. The umpires are looking at the ball. Another bat has been brought out. It’s all quite sedate

16.20 Shaheen Shah Afridi to Misbah-ul-Haq Misbah backs away from this one as Afridi comes around the stumps, but the bowler follows him and cramps him for room no run
16.10 Shaheen Shah Afridi to Misbah-ul-Haq Afridi starts with a yorker, just outside off, and Misbah digs it out no run

Manoj Gautam: “Why don’t Fakhar bring Sandeep to bowl, he could get break through in this kind of situation.”

End of Over No.16 90/5 Last Over (13 runs)

15.61 Wiese to Misbah-ul-Haq tapped down to long on, and Misbah keeps the strike 1 run
15.54 Wiese to Misbah-ul-Haq threaded through the gap! Third man is up, but Wiese offers width outside off. Misbah backs away and makes sure to angle his shot right between the short third man and gully fielders FOUR
15.44 Wiese to Misbah-ul-Haq picked up over wide long on! Misbah stays deep in the crease, reads the length early and fetches the ball into the gap between long on and deep midwicket FOUR

Aishf: “In retrospect including Misbah was a brilliant decision. The situation became tailor-made for him.”

15.31 Wiese to Sammy pushed to cover to turn the strike back over 1 run
15.22 Wiese to Sammy lifted way, way up in the air towards wide long off. Neither long off nor cover sweeper could get to it in time, but Sohail Akhtar manages to parry it back inside the boundary rope 2 runs
15.11 Wiese to Misbah-ul-Haq boom! Slammed straight back at Wiese, who can’t quite get his hand down to it 1 run

Khurshid Ahmad: “Why Shaheen Afridi is being held back by Fakhar. It’s now or never situation he should use his premier bowler to break this dangerous stand”

End of Over No.15 77/5 Last Over (5 runs)

14.61 Haris Rauf to Misbah-ul-Haq full and straight, and it’s heaved out through square leg with plenty of bottom hand 1 run
