That also brings an end to our coverage of this encounter between Karachi Blues and Lahore Whites. This is me Hiren Kumar signing off on behalf of my co-commentators Saptak Sanyal and Harshit Rathi and scorer/analyst Bishal Mandal. CHEERS!!. 
Saad Nasim (Lahore Whites Captain) - "Thanks to the almighty, Ahmed Shahzad played a brilliant inning and was a match-winning one. Karachi is a young team and played well but we had an experienced team with the likes of Ahmed Shahzad, Tayyab Tahir and more. We will look to improve our fielding going forward"
23:39 IST and 23:09 Local Time - Lahore qualifies for the Super Eight with this comprehensive win over Karachi. It was the Ahmed Shahzad Show in Karachi as he smacked 72* off just 52 balls. 150 never looked threatening for this Lahore batting lineup. 

Putting to bat first, the Karachi batters were beaten with the early swing from the Lahore bowlers and lost both their openers in the first two overs. Mohammad Taha and Saifullah Bangesh then stitched a good partnership in the middle and added 51 runs before the former was dismissed for 41.

Karachi kept losing wickets in the middle to spin. The duo of Kashif Ali and Bahadur Ali fought hard in the end and scored 39* and 25 runs respectively and posted a below-par total of 150 runs. 

Lahore Bowlers made full use of the conditions and bowled accurately by picking up wickets consistently. Mohammad Amir Khan and Ahmed Daniyal were both brilliant and picked up 2 wickets each. 

With the bat, Lahore started their innings with a positive intent and made full use of the powerplay. They lost Mohammad Akhlaq early but Ahmed Shahzad and Tayyab Tahir batted very well with the former scoring 72* unbeaten. Saad Khan also played a wonderful Camero of 21* off 11 to seal the deal in the end.

Lahore Whites qualifies for the super eight and the Karachi Blues are eliminated from the competition. Lahore players are together in the ground for a photograph now.
17.6 B Ali to S Khan
6 That's the game!! That's it! Lahore Whites qualifies for the super eight stage and it was the Saad Khan's cameo that helped them a lot in the late stage. Fullish length delivery just outside off stump. Saad shuffles across a tad and lofts it powerfully over long-off for a maximum. What a way to earn the victory! What a way to confirm the qualification!
17.5 B Ali to S Khan
0 Short delivery around the off stump and the batter tries to guide it towards the third man but gets an under edge. 
Lahore side is just three runs away.
17.4 B Ali to S Khan
4 Saad on the GO! Short pitched at the middle and off stump line. Saad moves across and smacked on the cover boundary for a four!!!
17.3 B Ali to S Khan
0 Short delivery on the off stump and the batter mistimes it straight to the bowler
17.2 B Ali to S Khan
4 Pressure clutch!!!! Saad takes off the short ball at the off stump line and he takes on the ball towards the cover region and in clear gaps for a clean and clear four. 
17.1 B Ali to A Shehzad
1 Fuller and into the stumps and Shehzad drills it straight down the ground for a single
12 needed from the final 3 overs. They need it from the next 11 balls to qualify and Karachi needs to stop this to qualify. GAME ON!
