Karachi Kings Vs Multan Sulan

Earlier, Karachi Kings beat Multan Sultan by seven runs in a thrilling match.

Kings opener Liam Livingstone blistering 82-run 43-ball knock helped Karachi Kings to set a 184 target.

Sultans could only muster 176 runs in their allotted 20 overs.

Man-of-the-match Livingstone and Babar Azam opened the innings for the Kings, whereas Mohammad Irfan bowled the first over for the Sultans.

The Kings openers dealt everything that the Sultans threw at them masterfully, bringing up their side’s 50 in the 6th over and 100 in the 11th over.

The opening wicket finally fell in the 16th over when Livingstone skied one and was holed out. He finished with 43-ball 82 laced with 6 sixes and just as many fours.

Livingstone’s departure opened the floodgates for Sultans who picked three quick wickets in the next few overs, including the prized one of Azam, who contributed a 59-ball 77.

In all, the Kings lost six wickets in the final 5 overs to finish with a total score of 183-6.

Shan Masood and Tom Moores started the run chase for the Sultans but their partnership didn’t last long; Mohammad Amir had Moores caught in just the second over.

When Masood’s laboured 20-run knock came to an end in the 9th over, it was all Karachi. However, Laurie Evans and Shoaib Malik stabilised the Multan ship before the latter went berserk in the 14th over, plundering 24 runs laced with five straight boundaries off Ravi Bopara.

Evans’ and Malik’s 49- and 52-run knocks could only do so much for the Sultans, who were 139-5 after 16.3 overs in pursuit of their 184-run target.
