Shadab Khan finishes off the game with an almighty stroke. Clears the front leg, and pumps it over the long on fence. A brilliant game of cricket. Islamabad looked in trouble after seven overs of the chase. Asif Ali then walked to the crease and completely changed the match. A powerful 70 off 38 balls put them back in charge, and they were able to sneak home with four balls to spare. They now jump up to the top of the table, whereas Karachi remain bottom. The PSL action continues again tomorrow, with another double header.
