That’s a wrap from our side as well. We appreciate your participation from all across the world. On behalf of my co-commentator Megh Mandaliya and Scorer/Analyst Manish Bishnoi, I, Deepak Prakash, am signing off. Please join us for the other fixtures across the world. Until then, Ta-Ta, Bye-Bye. 
Mohammad Rizwan (Multan Sultans Captain and the Player of the Match): "The Multan crowd exceeded our expectations to be honest. The support here has been fantastic even on afternoon games. Early on, we didn't adjust to the conditions and I was biding my time at the crease and Masood was striking well. Credit goes to the bowlers. We were around 10-15 short and every single bowler deserves the credit today. Every game in cricket is challenging and we will try to continue this momentum in other venues as well." 
Imad Wasim (Karachi Kings Captain): "While we had it in the bag, we were unable to finish it. However, we ultimately lacked game awareness. Although it slowed down in the middle overs, I thought the interplay was really good. We ought to have won three of the four games. Unfortunately, there is nothing we can do about that right now. Sure, we must sit down and converse. We might not be able to compete if we lose one more game. We are there, but clicking is what really matters. We'll chat and sit down with the hopes of returning stronger for the remainder of the competition."
10: 23 PM IST | In a game where the pendulum oscillated from to and fro, Multan Sultans has defeated Karachi Kings by a narrow margin of 3 runs. This is their fourth win on the bounce to regain the top-of-the-table spot and they have ended their home campaign on a high here. Absolute terrific scenes here at Multan.  

In pursuit of a competitive total of 196 under lights, the Karachi openers Matthew Wade and James Vince went all guns blazing inside the powerplay and exhibited their batting prowess sensationally. The left-handed Wade started the assault but it wasn’t long enough before the English batter Vince also joined forces with him and completed his half-century inside the first six. The left-right duo of Wade and Vince swatted a total of 14 boundaries inside the powerplay and eased Kings to 72 without any loss in the wickets. 

 The remorseless power-hitting display was halted by Usama Mir as the leg-break bowler trapped Wade 20(14) in the front right after the field restrictions. The right-hander Viince continued the ultra-aggressive approach and cruised Karachi past 100 inside 9 overs. However, Vince was involved in a mix-up thereafter and had to walk back after a blistering 75(34), including 7 fours and 6 maximums. 

Following the wicket of Vince, the Kings went off the course as Khushdil Shah removed Haider Ali for 12(17) and Shoaib Malik alongside Imad Wasim failed to carry forward the momentum. The duo decelerated the innings at the critical juncture and Malik 13(19) succumbed to the mounting pressure at the backend, courtesy of a sensational effort from Kieron Pollard. 

The Multan spinners dried up the boundaries in the middle overs and it was an excellent bowling spell from Ihsanullah at the backend that stormed the game away from the Kings. Eventually, the visitors required 40 from the last two overs, and a brave effort from Imad Wasim 46*(26), and Ben Cutting 12(10) took matters to the last delivery of the match but youngster Abbas Afridi held his nerves, and delivered rollercoaster of a last over.  

Earlier in the day, after being invited to bat first, the home side started their innings on a pleasant note as the left-right duo of
Shan Masood and Mohammad Rizwan yet again looked on a high perch. The duo maneuvered the scorecard well at the start and orchestrated 50 of the powerplay. Soon after, the southpaw Masood brought up his 8th half-century in the tournament. 

Just when the pair was steering Multan to a massive total, the golden arm of Shoaib Malik removed Masood for 51(33) and ceased the 85-run opening partnership. The skipper Rizwan continued the momentum forward and registered his 16th half-century and he was accompanied by the in-form Rilee Rossouw. The duo then provided the much-needed acceleration and completely changed the course of the game. 

Mohammad Rizwan was ruthless at the backend and registered his maiden PSL century, while Rossouw also chipped in with 29(21) in the 109-run partnership between the duo before departing in the final over. The right-handed Rizwan notched up a sensational 110*(64), including 10 fours and 4 maximums, and cruised the home side past 190. Stick around for the post-match presentation!

19.6 A Afridi to I Wasim
1 A loud cheer from the crowds, my goodness, what a comeback this was from the young lad Abbas Afridi. Fuller delivery a shade outside the off. Wasim gets his bat underneath the line of the ball and drills it to long-off but will only get a single here. Multan Sultans thumped Karachi Kings by 3 runs in the last-ball thriller. Take a bow, Abbas Afridi!
Right then. We are down to the very last ball of the match. Karachi requires 5 to get over the line. A four will drag matters to a Super Over. Imad Wasim is on the strike and Afridi is surrounded by the experienced guns for a quick chat. Here we goo... 
19.5 A Afridi to Niazi
1 Fuller delivery outside the off. Niazi lunges forward and swings it away to long-on for a single. What a comeback from this bloke.

Another twist in the tale. It's all happening here at Multan and the home side is well and truly alive. 6 required from 2 now and the crowd is on their feet. What are the chances for a Super Over here? 
19.4 A Afridi to B Cutting
W WICKET!! IN THE AIR ANNNNNND CAUGHT!! Is there another twist in the tail!! Length delivery wide outside the off. Cutting makes room and slaps hard at it but times it so well that the ball flies straight on the throats of the big man Pollard stationed at the long-off who makes no mistake and takes it easily. Cutting couldn't get the elevation needed here!
19.3 A Afridi to B Cutting
0 Length delivery wide outside the off, pace off from it. Cutting gets beaten.
Oh, dear! Another extra and Kings are just a hit away now. 
19.3 A Afridi to B Cutting
WD WIDE AGAIN!! Length delivery wide outside the off. Wide signaled by the umpire. 
Ben Cutting, you beauty! That will almost do it for the Kings. That is a 107 M maximum from Cutting. Biggest one so far in this season. 7 required from 4. Can Afridi pull things back? 
19.2 A Afridi to B Cutting
6 SIX!! IN THE AIR ANNNNNNNND IT'S A MAAAASIVE SIXXX!! Length delivery at the stumps. Cutting swings across the line of the ball and tonks it over the cow corner for a massive six. 
Just 13 required now from 5 balls. 
19.2 A Afridi to B Cutting
WD WIDE!! Oh dear, Afridi is under too much pressure here!! Fuller delivery outside the tramline. Wide signaled.
