18.1 - Imran Khan to Bopara, out Caught&Bowled!! After a flurry of slower deliveries the quicker one surprised Bopara, who came down the track and tried to flat bat the pull, was hurried by the pace and got it off the toe end to the right of the bowler, who dived to his right and took the catch one-handed to send Bopara back to the hut. Bopara c and b Imran Khan 23(22) [4s-2]

17.1 - Sammy to Shakib, out Caught by Rehman!! He was struggling for some time now and he has to depart. He never looked comfortable against the slower delivery and departs trying to force the issue.

16.0 - Usama Mir to Hodge, out K Akmal Run Out!! 1 run completed. TV umpire has been pressed into action on a run-out appeal against K Akmal and he is gone as confirmed by replays. Hodge jammed this drive to sweeper cover and called for two. Akmal for some reason ran at an angle and was caught short at the bowler's end on a good throw that was right on top of the stumps. The bowler whipped the bails off. K Akmal run out (Bopara/Usama Mir) 8(9) [4s-1]

11.5 - Bhatti to Afridi, out Lbw!! Afridi has to go but the drama was more than just the wicket. Back of a length delivery that angled into Afridi as he looked to flog it across the line. It seemed to have hit him high on the pad but the umpire acknowledged the appeal. On replays though, it was hitting the middle-stump. Afridi, on his part, was not happy with the decision. In fact, he wanted to sneak in a leg bye and collided with the bowler who was appealing in his followthrough. The good thing was that the bowler did not really get hurt, Afridi extended a helping hand to the bowler. Completely unintentional it was. Afridi lbw b Bhatti 5(5)

10.2 - Usama Mir to Allenby, out Lbw!! That looked close the moment it hit Allenby low on the back leg, he was well down to effect the slog sweep, missed the line of the delivery completely and was struck right in front, the bowler and the keeper went for the big appeal and umpire thought for a moment before raising his finger. The equation is becoming tougher for Peshawar. Allenby lbw b Usama Mir 31(29) [4s-4]

4.4 - Bhatti to Malan, out Caught by Saifullah Bangash!! The slower short delivery has done the trick for Bhatti. Malan looks to flat-bat the pull and is surprised by the off-pace delivery. He gets it off the toe-end and the keeper pouches an easy catch. Malan c Saifullah Bangash b Bhatti 8(11) [4s-1]

1.0 - Amir to Hafeez, out Caught by Wessels!! Amir has made the first incision. Good short delivery that was slanted across the right-hander, Hafeez tries to take it on with a pull. However, he gets a top-edge to Wessels at mid-wicket, who sets under the ball and gobbles it up. Nice start for Karachi Kings in this key encounter. Hafeez c Wessels b Amir 4(6) [4s-1]
