Karachi win last-ball thriller against Lahore

Lahore: Karachi Kings got their second win of HBL PSL 9 after they inflicted a two-wicket defeat over Lahore Qalandars at Gaddafi Stadium on Saturday night.

Chasing 176 against Lahore, Karachi managed to complete the target on the final ball of the game.

Lahore Qalandars posted 175-6 in 20 overs after being put to bat first.

They got off to a stuttering start as Fakhar Zaman fell to left-arm pacer Mir Hamza in the third over, courtesy of a magnificent running catch taken by Shan Masood.

At the end of the powerplay, Lahore stood at 32-1.

In the ninth over, Tabraiz Shamsi brought an end to a 36-run stand between Sahibzada Farhan and Rassie van der Dussen as the latter was pinned leg-before for a 26 on 23 balls, including three boundaries.

Ahsan Bhatti was removed for a run-a-ball eight after he holed out to Kieron Pollard in long-on off Hasan Ali’s bowling to bring Lahore down to 54-3 in 9.4 overs.

Drama ensued when Jahandad Khan hit Shamsi for a maximum on the first ball of the 11th over and was pinned leg-before on the next delivery.

However, the decision was overturned as the bowler had overstepped.
