Karachi Kings Batting
In reply Karachi Kings were not according to the expectation behind that target. They Loose the new player Mukhtar Ahmad in 2nd over by sameen gul. Then the man in form comes in. But he took to much to settle down. I am talking about babar Azam. Babar Azam and Joe Denly play good inning in Partnership but not handsome enough to reach that target. In last some overs they need the run rate of almost 18.
Babar Azam got out when just 3 overs were remaining and Colin ingram the next man in. Because he was new on the pitch he was unable to middling the ball. Karachi Kings Nees 50 plus runs to chase in last 3 overs. Some how joe denly play some good shots till the end of the match. He also hit some boundaries in 2nd last over.
Last over karachi kings need 27 runs and colin ingram was on the strike. Wahab Riaz ball a no ball in start of the over. If Colin ingram hit a boundary on that no ball then it was a chance that story could be different. But it does not happen. And Zalmi win it in last over by 13 runs.
Kamran Akmal was man of the match for his outstanding batting.
