So, that also brings and wrap to our coverage of this encounter. Hopefully, we get some play in the 2nd PSL game scheduled later in the day. For now, this is me Hiren Kumar, signing off on behalf of my co-commentator Sidharth Gulati and scorer/analyst Zeeshan Naiyer. 
16:31 IST and 16:01 Local Time | MATCH ABANDONED. The inevitable news is here. The chances of any play were always looking slim. Another news is that, Lahore Qalandars all but eliminated. Peshawar, on the other hand, will not mind much sharing a point each. 
16:25 IST and 15:55 Local Time | An official update in 5 minutes. Looks like the end is near.
16:08 IST and 15:38 Local Time | Nothing much to update as the covers remain firmly in place and the rain also continue to pour steadily. The outfield is already extremely wet. Mere formality to wait till the cut-off time. Let's hope for something good.
LATEST UPDATE: The official cut-off time for a 5-over match is 17:17 IST and 16:47 Local Time.
15:55 IST and 15:25 Local Time | We'll have an official update in the next 5 minutes. Will let you know.
15:29 IST and 14:59 Local Time | Raining again. Slight drizzle. The covers are back on. The waiting game continues. The pitch is under covers, too. Raining heavily now. Weirdly, the spectators have covered themselves with chairs. The chances of any play look slim as of now. It's absolutely pouring down. Toss further delayed due to adverse weather. Will keep you posted.
15:10 IST and 14:40 Local Time | Live visuals confirm that the players have just entered their respective dressing rooms. Okay, Shaheen Afridi and Babar Azam are inspecting the field. Daren Sammy, the head coach of Peshawar Zalmi, is having a chat with the umpires. Babar and Shaheen now are having a look at the pitch. The players are still in their track suits. We should have an update soon.
Pitch Report (by Waqar Younis): "The pitch is a little damp. It might help the pacers early on. If they hit the right length, they'll get something out of it. If they pitch it up, they'll likely get smashed around. Win the toss and bowl first."
Ground Report (by Sana Mir): "The outfield has improved. All credit to the groundstaff."
15:00 IST and 14:30 Local Time | The inspection's on. We should have an update soon.
14:38 IST and 14:08 Local Time | Almost all covers are off. Still very dark. The groundstaff are working hard.
14:29 IST and 13:59 Local Time | The pitch cover is off. Square is uncovered. The groundstaff are very positive in their movement. Good signs! Let's wait for the umpires' verdict in another 30 minutes. Stay tuned!
