Karachi Kings vs Islamabad United

Islamabad United defeats Karachi Kings by 5 wickets in the seventh match of Pakistan Super League (PSL) 6 played at National Stadium, Karachi.

Islamabad United’s Shadab Khan has won the toss and elects to bowl first against Karachi Kings.

Despite putting up a huge 197-run score on the board, Islamabad was struggling at 13-2 and the Kings were firm favourites to keep their winning streak going.

However, then came the most expensive over of PSL history, bowled by Aamer Yamin, whose seven-ball third over was bled for 29 runs by Alex Hales (46).

That over gave a massive boost to the Islamabad run-rate and set the tone for the rest of the innings.

Earlier,  Babar Azam and Sharjeel Khan scored the highest PSL partnership of 176 runs as Karachi Kings posted the highest team’s total of 196-3 against Islamabad United.
