Islamabad United subjected defending champions Karachi Kings to a shock defeat in their last league game on 24 February at Karachi. Batting first, Kings scored 196/3, on the back of opener Sharjeel Khan’s brilliant 105 off 59 balls, with 9 fours and 8 sixes. Khan shared an opening stand of 176 with Babar Azam before Azam was run out. For Islamabad, Hasan Ali (1/36) and Husain Talat (1/25) were the only wicket-takers. When Islamabad batted, there were off to a horrific start, reduced to 2/13 in the 2nd over. But they were rescued by a 62 run-stand for the 3rd wicket between Faheem Ashraf and Alex Hales. Another stand of 94 for the 5th wicket between Iftikhar Ahmad (49) and Husain Talat (42) set United up for an improbable win. When Talat got out, the scoreboard read 176/5 in 17.4 overs. Islamabad got the remaining 21 runs needed, with 5 balls to spare. Among Kings’ bowlers, Imad Wasim, Md Amir, Waqas Maqsood, Arshad Iqbal and Md Nabi got a wicket each.
In their last league game on 22 February, Lahore Qalandars cruised to a 10-wicket win over Quetta Gladiators at Karachi. Batting first, Gladiators scored 178/6.
