The Karachi Kings won the toss, and they chose to bowl first.
|MULTAN SULTANS||KARACHI KINGS|
|Mohammad Rizwan||Mathew Wade|
|Shan Masood||James Vince|
|Rilee Russow||Haider Ali|
|David Miller||Shoaib Malik|
|Kieron Pollard||Imad Wasim|
|Khushdil Shah||Ben Cutting|
|Carlos Brathwaite||Irfan Khan|
|Usama Mir||Aamer Yamin|

|Mohammad Ilyas||Akif Javed|
They had a fantastic first stand, with Masood playing the initiator and Rizwan content to follow in his footsteps.
As Masood left with the score at 85, Rossouw partnered with Rizwan, and the momentum shifted immediately. Rizwan, who seemed to suffer in his first 50 runs, rediscovered his mojo with a barrage of sweeps and pick-up strokes.
After gaining confidence through those boundaries, the captain immediately shifted gears and knocked up a 60-ball 100 to put his team at 196
|MULTAN SULTANS 196-2|
|Mohammad Rizwan 110(64)||Mohammad Umar 1-44|
|Shan Masood 51(33)||Shoaib Malik 1-29|
|Rilee Russow 29(21)|
40 points are required from two overs. And then it came down to 7 from 4, and only the Kings knew how they lost. Wasim Akram seemed to be in great distress.
James Vince is taken aback. The Kings smashed 72 off the first 33 balls, with Vince going bananas and amassing the quickest PSL fifty in PSL 8 in the way.
Vince appeared to be on track for a 100, but he was run out at the halfway point, taking his momentum with him.
Just 52 runs were scored from overs 11-18, and despite the thrills and spills of the final two overs, the Kings could not get through.
Ihsanullah was outstanding once again with the ball. He bowled 13 dots.
|KARACHI KINGS 193-5|
|James Vince 75(34)||Abbas Afridi 2-55|
|Imad Wasim 46(26)||Usama Mir 1-35|
|Matthew Wade 20(14)||Khushdil Shah 1-25|
