  Commentary

  • That's all from us, ladies and gents. See you tomorrow again for yet another exciting game.

  • Misbah-ul-Haq: We want to keep doing the basics right. A very good performance. Good to see the players achieve the targets given to them. We've got a lot of momentum, a lot of energy. It's important to continue this. I had a hamstring injury, that's why I wasn't batting much and now the boys are really doing well, so no need.

  • Shoaib Malik: It's tough for the team and you are helpless as you are dependent on other teams. But if you keep on committing mistakes, you are bound to get angry. Everyone fails but it's important how you come back. We need to surprise other teams if we want to play playoffs. If you are chasing a big total, you needn't lose early wickets.

  • Luke Ronchi (MoM): You want to win games of cricket and that's why you play the game. I'm still enjoying it. We are playing really good cricket, consistent cricket. Hopefully, we can continue that.

  • Player of the match - Luke Ronchi

  • A target of 186 was never going to be an easy one and it became even more difficult when Multan lost early wickets. Pollard hit some lusty blows towards the end, on his way to 73 to give his side some hopes. But when he fell, it was all over. Islamabad's win means Quetta too have qualified for the playoffs.

Target: 186

  Full commentary

  • Luke Ronchi (58 off 36) and Alex Hales (46 off 33) laid the platform for a big score. The duo took full advantage of Karachi's wayward bowling as the runs came fast and easy. Hussain Talat, Asif Ali, and Faheem Ashraf ensured Islamabad finished with a flourish. Umar Gul (2 for 26) and Imran Tahir (1 for 29) were the only two bowlers who looked like making some impact as Islamabad posted 185 for 4. We will back with the chase in 15 minutes, stay tuned.

  • Multan Sultans Won the Toss & Elected to Field

  • Hello and welcome to the match 25 of Pakistan Super League 2018. It's Multan Sultans v Islamabad United at Sharjah Cricket Association Stadium.

  Full commentary

  • That's all from us, ladies and gents. See you tomorrow again for yet another exciting game.

  • Misbah-ul-Haq: We want to keep doing the basics right. A very good performance. Good to see the players achieve the targets given to them. We've got a lot of momentum, a lot of energy. It's important to continue this. I had a hamstring injury, that's why I wasn't batting much and now the boys are really doing well, so no need.

  • Shoaib Malik: It's tough for the team and you are helpless as you are dependent on other teams. But if you keep on committing mistakes, you are bound to get angry. Everyone fails but it's important how you come back. We need to surprise other teams if we want to play playoffs. If you are chasing a big total, you needn't lose early wickets.

  • Luke Ronchi (MoM): You want to win games of cricket and that's why you play the game. I'm still enjoying it. We are playing really good cricket, consistent cricket. Hopefully, we can continue that.

  • Player of the match - Luke Ronchi

  • A target of 186 was never going to be an easy one and it became even more difficult when Multan lost early wickets. Pollard hit some lusty blows towards the end, on his way to 73 to give his side some hopes. But when he fell, it was all over. Islamabad's win means Quetta too have qualified for the playoffs.
